An ex-miner in England who first went down the pits at 14 is suing his former employers after contracting asbestos-related cancer, according to the Huddersfield Daily newspaper on February 6, 2008.
The former miner wants compensation for his asbestosis illness, saying he was
exposed to asbestos when he worked for a coal giant.
He contends he was exposed to asbestos from lagged boilers, steam pipes, stripping, mixing and applying asbestos and when working on asbestos clutches and brakes. He says he also worked on asbestos roofs, clutches, driers and boilers.
Sadly, this situation is all too familiar to the attorneys in the Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. Asbestos Litigation unit here in the United States.
