A floor tiler, working in the 1960’s and early 1970’s, contracted mesothelioma as a result of exposure to airborne asbestos dust when engaged in removing/installing tiles containing asbestos materials.
Liability was initially denied, but when faced with incontrovertible evidence showing that the tiles were made from an asbestos based fire retarding compound, the defendant admitted breach of duty.
The defendant initially offered the claimant the sum of £85,000 to settle out of court, which was then increased to £100,000. However, both offers were rejected and when the case was taken to trial, the claimant was awarded £125,000 compensation.
