Any work done on this equipment would disturb the asbestos, causing harmful dust and fibres to be released into the air.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t known that asbestos was so dangerous back then, and workers like my husband were not provided with safety equipment to make sure they didn’t breathe in the toxic dust. So, almost 50 years after he first began working at British Rail, my husband fell ill.
On falling ill, my husband was very worried about our future, and he was recommended to speak to Mr John Das of Dedicated Accident Solicitors. Very sadly, my husband’s illness took hold very quickly and he died during the early stages of his claim. I continued the claim for his sake, and Dedicated Accident Solicitors helped me through the process during a very difficult time. They were very professional, caring, and sensitive, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
