Paula's case experience

Mesothelioma claim: Paula’s client developed mesothelioma after working at a sawmill for 25 years. As part of his job, he unloaded, stacked and manipulated unsealed asbestos boards without protection. Sadly, he passed away before the claim was completed and Paula secured a six figure settlement for his family.

Asbestosis claim: Paula represented a pipe fitter who was exposed to asbestos dust while stripping lagging from pipework without protective equipment over a period of three decades. He contracted asbestosis as a consequence and Paula secured a settlement on his behalf. 



A former client of Paula’s said: “Thank you Paula for all your patience and understanding and friendship throughout this episode of my condition. You discussed all aspects of the case with courtesy and compassion."

Another of Paula’s former clients said: “I found Paula Wrigley and her team were excellent and made the process easier and less stressful to deal with, particularly when I was grieving. I know my husband would have liked to thank her himself.”
