A laboratory worker had made a compensation claim after being diagnosed with mesothelioma. However, he tragically died before his case was heard.
During his working life, he was exposed to asbestos dust. This was due to the fact that the processing area in the laboratory was constantly being developed and expanded. His job required him to move around this area on a daily basis.
At the age of 65, he began to experience breathing problems and a pain in his abdomen. After seeking medical attention, he was diagnosed with mesothelioma. It was then that he decided to claim compensation.
His claim was on the grounds that his employer had been negligent in allowing him to be exposed to asbestos dust. Even at the time of his employment, his employer should have been aware of the dangers of exposure and should have taken the proper precautions to ensure his safety.
Despite his death, his claim was continued on behalf of his widow. It was successful and she received £150,000 in compensation.
