LISA’S CASE EXPERIENCE
Asbestosis compensation claim: Lisa’s client developed asbestosis after working at the Windscale power station in Sellafield in the 1960s. While at work, he erected scaffolding for laggers and was exposed to asbestos paste when they sprayed it onto the walls of the heat exchangers in the AGR reactor plant. Lisa won the case for her client, securing a sum of £24,500.

Mrs B, a widow of a former Thompsons asbestos disease client, said: “I just want to say thank you for all the work you have put in over the years. You were very good with my husband when you visited Hospital. I know it was hard for him with the speech and understanding problems that he had, and also he was finding it very hard to come to terms with being told that his condition was terminal. The outcome was more than I could have expected so, once again, thank you.”
