Mr Sunderland worked in shipbuilding at the peak of asbestos insulation application during the 1950s and 60s, but was never made aware of any dangers associated with handling the substance. After a three year battle against mesothelioma, Mr Sunderland passed away. We successfully settled Mr Sunderland's case in 14 months, with interim payments secured in the process.

Mrs Sunderland said: “Thompsons couldn't have been more different from the other solicitors – it was such a relief! We all felt we were in expert hands from the outset and it continued that way throughout. Everything was dealt with promptly, efficiently and very knowledgably, including the obtaining of expert specialist evidence. And the settlement was reached in 14 months with stage payments being received during the process. I know that Ken was grateful for all Thompsons' help.”
