Recently, Ivan Simic, Partner and Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury and an expert in dust asbestos exposure, secured a sizeable pay-out for a retired roofer who had contracted pleural plaques, pleural fibrosis and asbestos related pleural disease from his time working with asbestos sheeting in the roofing industry.
Thommy had retired from work many years ago, but over the years started developing breathing problems. Eventually his breathing severely affected the quality of his life and he turned to Ivan seeking advice and help.
Ivan visited Thommy on several occasions at his home. He gathered all the necessary medical evidence and evidence of Thommy’s exposure to asbestos to support a claim for compensation in the Dust Diseases Tribunal.
Eventually the matter came on for hearing and Ivan was able to settle Thommy’s case for a very sizeable lump sum pay-out.
Thommy didn’t have mesothelioma and, if this deadly disease ever developed in Thommy’s lungs, Ivan made sure that Thommy could come back and bring a further claim for lump sum compensation relating to the development of this deadly disease.
