Charlie's story

Charlie's story

Charlie worked in the construction industry throughout the 1980s and 90s. His employer failed to provide appropriate protective equipment and, as a result, he was exposed to asbestos dust.

In 2011, Charlie’s wife persuaded him to visit his GP after his health deteriorated and soon afterwards he was diagnosed with the fatal asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma.

Following his diagnosis, Charlie contacted Thompsons mesothelioma solicitors who secured compensation on his behalf.

Charlie said: “Thompsons were fantastic. They sat down with me and went through my employment history in detail to help work out exactly when I had been in contact with asbestos and that meant I could make a compensation claim. It is a comfort to know that I can give my family financial security when I am gone.”

Charlie developed mesothelioma after he was exposed to asbestos at work. With our help, he was awarded compensation.
