Compensation Reached for Woman with Mesothelioma

In the United Kingdom, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) announced that a settlement had been reached with a lady that has mesothelioma. The victim, Debbie Brewer, had a father that worked at the Devonport Dockyard when she was a child. The MoD owned the dockyards at the time. Brewer and the MoD have accepted that the only way she was exposed to mesothelioma-causing asbestos was when she would hug her father upon his return from work at the dockyard. Apparently, the fibers got into his clothes and were inhaled by his little girl whenever she said hello after a long day at work.

Ms. Brewer says the money, a six-figure deal, has given her some hope for her family’s financial future. She has three children including a 10-year-old son with learning difficulties.

This is just another instance where exposure to asbestos doesn’t hurt just the person directly working around asbestos. It clearly hurts the family as well.
