Neil has experience of dealing with asbestos compensation claims for all types of asbestos-related diseases, including pleural thickening, asbestosis, asbestos-related lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Neil's case experience

  • Recovered almost £250,000 for the widow of a mesothelioma victim who died in his fifties, which took into account his young age when he died. 
  • Secured more than £140,000 in compensation for the widow of a joiner who died of mesothelioma after being negligently exposed to asbestos by his employers while working on construction sites throughout the 1970s and 1980s.
