NYF recover £170,000 for accident victim 

Changes to "no win, no fee" cases in England and Wales announced by Justice Secretary

Case E - Exposure to Asbestos

We were asked by Mr C to take on his claim for compensation arising out of his exposure to asbestos in the late 1950s. He had previously been represented by a leading north-west firm who had advised him that they did not believe his case would win.

We arranged for him to be seen by a medical expert who prepared a report confirming that his breathing difficulties were due in part to his history of working with asbestos. We also obtained a report from an expert engineer who confirmed that his former employers had failed to take adequate care for his safety by the standards of the day.

After issuing court proceedings on his behalf, the Defendants eventually agreed to attend a settlement meeting, at which we secured a settlement for him of £125,000.
