Joiners: You have a right to seek asbestos lawsuit compensation for your health concerns.
In recent news about the dangers of asbestos, the family of a retired carpenter/joiner has won lawsuit compensation after he died from mesothelioma cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.
The joiner, 70, was diagnosed with the asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma, in April 2006 and died six months later.
He had worked as a carpenter and joiner at a building company from 1964.
Reportedly, bosses from the former company admitted negligence after the joiner's death.
Court records indicate the joiner died from bronchopneumonia related to his mesothelioma condition.
His carpentry duties included removing and disposing of old asbestos roof sheets and replacing them with new sheets. His joiner work entailed making finished woodwork, such as window frames and stairs.
Many joiners and carpenters have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
