Six-figure sum for mesothelioma victim

A claim has successfully been settled for a six-figure sum for the family of a mesothelioma victim. He was exposed to the asbestos dust when he was working as an apprentice pipe fitter at a brass factory which recycled scrap metal. He was exposed to asbestos lagged pipes and asbestos dust during his five-year apprenticeship as his job involved stripping asbestos lined boilers and working in proximity to asbestos laggers. He also used asbestos mats to suppress the heat from the furnaces. He was never warned about the dangers of asbestos and was given little protection.
