Mr B of Cornwall…
Mr B only worked for one employer who exposed him to asbestos dust. He worked in ship repair, often in confined spaces where it was impossible to avoid the asbestos dust created by the work of laggers in his vicinity who were stripping asbestos lagging off pipes and boilers in his vicinity.
Nobody told Mr B that asbestos was dangerous and no protection was supplied.
He developed mesothelioma 40 years after his last exposure to asbestos.
His claim was settled for over £85,000.00 shortly before he died and within 6 months of the diagnosis being made.
