Carrs Solicitors settle asbestos compensation claim

Carrs Solicitors recently settled a claim on behalf of the Estate of a late individual who worked for a company that had caused significant asbestos exposure to its staff over many years up to and including the early 1970s.

We were instructed in this case after the gentleman in question had passed away and we acted for his Personal Representative on behalf of his Estate.

This raised difficulties with regards to securing evidence as to the work done and the level of exposure. The parts of the site at which the work took place had to be ascertained partly through the family and partly through information contained in records.

Although the exposure took place a considerable number of years ago we were able to trace the successor company to the negligent employer and secure medical evidence, commence Court proceedings and ultimately secure a negotiated settlement of compensation on our client’s behalf.
