Thompsons are the leading law firm in Scotland fighting for the rights of asbestos victims and their families. The horrendous health problems caused by exposure to asbestos cause terrible pain and loss to many families across the country. For decades Thompsons has been at the forefront of helping these families. In a recent landmark case at the Court of Session in Edinburgh Thompsons helped the McCarn family get justice for their dad John. John who was exposed to asbestos while working in the Clyde shipyards died at the age of 69. Had it not been for his exposure to asbestos doctors say John would have lived till his late 90s. The McCarns and their lawyer from Thompsons, Craig Smillie, spoke to the Glasgow Evening Times about the case and dangers posed by asbestos.
