Shipyard Worker Receives Settlement

In England, a 78-year-old former shipyard worker received a $120,000 settlement (60,000 pounds) after only a 14 week fight. It is especially impressive that he won considering the English courts just 2 weeks ago denied the ability of sufferers of pleural plaques to sue for their condition.

The former carpenter that worked in the shipyards for Pallion developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos dust and fibers for more than 30 years. He has no dependents but will be able to put his finances straight.

The case was important, according to the victim’s solicitor (the victim wishes to remain anonymous), because it reminds people that while they can’t sue for pleural plaques, they can sue for a variety of other diseases tied to asbestos.

 If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos and diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact the mesothelioma lawyers of Williams and Kherkher in Houston.
