Asbestos compensation claim to be launched?

Asbestos compensation claim to be launched 2338

Compensation could be sought by a family after it emerged a loved one passed away due to an asbestos-related disease earlier this year.

According to the North West Evening Mail, a coroner's report has ruled that Peter Wilson died in August from mesothelioma caused by the fact he came into regular contact with the material during a 43-year career as a machinist.

The 61-year-old worked at Oxley Developments in Ulverston from 1965 to 2008 fulfilling roles such as a machine setter and machine shop manager and the professional was exposed to asbestos throughout this time.

Marian Wilson, the man's widow, told the news source she was "satisfied" with the outcome, but indicated the coroner's report was "very traumatising".

"It's hard to comprehend that he worked incredibly hard all his life and that part of his work is what took him from us," she added.

This comes after the Halifax Courier revealed the family of Peter Duesbury are trying to establish when he came into contact with asbestos after he died of mesothelioma in April 2009.
