    Case's Ingrid has recently settled 

    • Representing a client who was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a terminal asbestos related cancer.  Due to the client’s limited life expectancy, speed was of the essence in dealing with the claim.  A settlement of £120k was obtained within 4 months of being instructed. 
    • Representing a client who was diagnosed with mesothelioma as a result of exposure to asbestos dust. Sadly, the client passed away before the claim was completed, however Ingrid was able to assist in bringing a claim against the negligent employer on behalf of his estate. The client's previous employers accepted liability and insurers paid the estate a sum of £210k in compensation.  
    • Representing a client who developed pleural thickening as a result of being exposed to asbestos dust.  Despite the exposure having taken place many decades earlier, both the client’s previous employers accepted responsibility for his injuries and paid total compensation of £25k. 

    What our clients say

    "I just wanted to say thank you for being so helpful and fighting my case for me. As you can imagine, after everything I went through with them I was eager to see the back of them as quickly and as painlessly as possible, so how it's been dealt with has really helped me avoid too much further misery. Thank you for the great advice and the discussions to help me understand the legal aspects of the case, I was very grateful for that. Also thank you for just for being genuine, decent and supportive in what has been a pretty ugly couple of years for me." PH, London
