Asbestos-related death could lead to damages claim

People close to a man who passed away in part due to an asbestos-related illness may decide to pursue personal injury compensation on his behalf.

According to online news resource This is Wiltshire, Jerome De Castellnou Trilles died at the age of 67 in July of last year after he contracted a work-related disease following his career working as an air frame fitter for the Royal Air Force - which offers more than 50 different types of career - between 1969 and 1973.

It has been ruled by an inquiry that he was exposed to asbestos during this period, which contributed to his death by cancer in the summer of 2010, with heavy smoking also having played a role in his passing.

As a result of this, Mr Trilles' family may decide to pursue a claim for a damages settlement on his behalf if it is found that his former employers did not warn him of the potential dangers of working with asbestos.
