Compensation recovered for family of deceased carpenter with asbestos-related cancer

Author headshot image Posted by , Partner

Royds Withy King were instructed by the family of Mr B who had recently passed away from malignant mesothelioma.

Mr B’s family knew that he worked as a carpenter for George Potter Limited.

Royds Withy King were able to find insurers for George Potter Limited and found, after much research, that notebooks containing details of work carried out by George Potter Limited were contained in the archives of Horsham Library. These dated back to the 1960’s and 1970’s – and showed the regular use of asbestos containing materials.

Royds Withy King took witness statements from Mr B’s son and his sister, who were able to confirm that he worked both within the joinery shop where he cut up asbestos boarding with a bench saw and on-site, where he cut up asbestos boarding with a hand saw.

As Mr B had no dependants, settlement of his claim was agreed to his family’s satisfaction for a substantial sum.
