Reverend Richard Bailey turned to Thompsons Solicitors’ asbestos specialists after he was diagnosed with the deadly asbestos-related disease, mesothelioma. He died 10 months after his diagnosis, aged just 69 years old.
His wife, Marilyn, continued the claim on his behalf following his death. With our help, she secured a six-figure settlement.
Richard was exposed to asbestos dust between 1962 and 1971 while working as a carpenter and joiner for a specialist company in Bradford, Yorkshire. They secured a contract with an electricity board to make insulated cabinets. He inhaled the asbestos dust while making timber cabinets lined with asbestos sheets and sweeping the dust from the floor.
