I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2010 as a trainee solicitor and qualified into the industrial diseases team in autumn 2012.
I assist clients who have been diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases to obtain the damages to which they are entitled. I have experience in many aspects of cases of this nature, including access to benefits, negotiating settlement and assisting on bereavement. I have assisted on cases involving substantial future losses, multiple defendants and international elements.
I am also chair of the London office branch of the charity committee, which is dedicated to raising funds for a local charity each year.
“Sadly, through our work we see many people, like Kim, who are totally unaware until their diagnosis that they have been exposed to asbestos.
“Kim’s death especially so soon after her diagnosis and at a young age compared to most sufferers of mesothelioma has come as a huge shock for Paul and the rest of the family.
“Their pain is made even worse by the fact the Kim never got to meet her new grandchild before her death.
“Our investigations into how she was exposed to asbestos are continuing, but we believe her exposure could have occurred around the time she worked at Green and Silley. Therefore, we would be grateful for anyone who worked at the dock around the same time as Kim to come forward and help Kim’s family obtain the answers they deserve.”
“This is yet another terrible case involving a person in which an individual has gone on to develop mesothelioma many years after it is believed that asbestos exposure took place.
“While contact with asbestos is very often linked to work in industrial environments, Pamela’s case is one of a growing number we are involved in linked to public buildings such as hospitals, schools and libraries.
“Pamela spent years helping others, and sadly was unable to find out in her lifetime what caused her illness. We are now determined to help her family and honour Pamela’s memory by establishing answers on their behalf.”
A case of this nature demonstrates the terrible impact that mesothelioma can have. It is terminal cancer and can be very aggressive once the symptoms begin to take hold.
“Although asbestos-related diseases are usually associated with construction and similar trades such as plumbers and electricians, cases involving workers in public buildings are becoming more common.
“We have been working carefully to piece together a full picture of Ernesto’s working life and, now, as part of our enquiries we would be keen to discover more about the two central London hotels where Ernesto worked.
“Such information could prove vital in terms of Violeta and the rest of Ernesto’s family obtaining the answers they undoubtedly deserve.”
I am delighted we have been able to settle Clair's case and help support the hospice where Brian received his care.
“By providing St Wilfrid's Hospice with this money and with Clair linking up with the HASAG team, individuals and their families will be able to access the essential support they need. Following the devastating loss of her husband from exposure to asbestos working as a teacher, it is incredible to see Clair making such a difference on behalf of all asbestos victims.
“Our clients are always very clear that where possible, they want to benefit the hospice where they were looked after by excellent carers and we will continue to assist wherever we can.”
