Provisional Damages Acquired for Victim of Asbestosis

Specialist asbestos solicitor, John Hall, successfully helped a victim of asbestosis acquire provisional damages for their exposure to asbestos during work.

The brief

The client was an engineering officer working aboard oil tankers during the 1960s and 1970s. He went on to be diagnosed with asbestosis and was very worried about what the future might bring for him. It was then that he got in touch with our specialist asbestos solicitors, for expert legal advice on what he should do next.

What our asbestos solicitors did to help

John Hall, Head of Personal Injury and Asbestos claims here at Trethowans, sorted out this client’s complex asbestosis case quickly and efficiently, recovering ‘provisional damages’ at the end of 2018. This meant that the client has the peace of mind of knowing that he can go back to court and obtain more money if his condition worsens.

As the client lived quite some distance from our offices, John Hall was more than happy to travel in order to meet the client and discuss their asbestos case face to face.
