Family may claim compensation for Mesothelioma

Family of mesothelioma victim to seek damages 2701

A family may claim compensation on behalf of a loved one who died from an Asbestos-related illness.

The Manchester Evening News reported that Steven Phythian died at the age of 57 from Pleural Mesothelioma which is is the most common form of Mesothelioma. An inquest into his death has heard that he was exposed to Asbestos in the 1960s.

Prior to his death Mr Phythian wrote a statement in which he claimed to have come into contact with Asbestos while helping his father, who supervised council-owned wash homes in the Greater Manchester area.

The man explained he used to visit his dad at work, where heavy machinery such as industrial washing machines and boilers were used "several times a day".

"I believe it's been caused by exposure to Asbestos arising out of my father's work,” he noted.

His family may now seek to claim Asbestos compensation on his behalf. Asbestos related diseases include Asbestosis, Mesothelioma, Lung Cancer, Diffuse Pleural Thickening and Pleural Plaques.
