Six-Figure Settlement For Family Following Death Caused By Mesothelioma

Irwin Mitchell’s Asbestos Related Disease team worked with a man to secure funds for his family shortly before his death caused by mesothelioma.

Mr M, a former ceiling fixer, contracted the disease following his exposure to asbestos at work. Mesothelioma is a deadly and incurable cancer which only reveals itself decades after exposure occurs.

Our team managed to secure £100,000 to safeguard his family’s future shortly before our client died.

Mark Aldridge, a solicitor specialising in asbestos related disease cases, said: “Though we were pleased to be able to secure a settlement of the case before Mr M passed away, so he knew that his family would be provided for, it came too late for him to benefit.

“Employers need to be quicker to own up when their former employees contract deadly conditions like mesothelioma.

“MR M did nothing wrong other than turn up to work. His employers should have done more at the time to protect his health. He could never have expected that his work would have such consequences decades later.”
