Simon Kilvington QC obtains high value mesothelioma settlement


29th April 2020

Simon recently acted for Daniel Easton at Leigh Day London on one of the highest value living mesothelioma claims there has been. Even by the standards of the Asbestos List, the case was particularly tragic, concerning a young doctor who contracted the disease from work done on hospital builldings during her medical training. The multi-million pound settlement included the highest ever award for psla in a mesothelioma claim, at £120,000.

 

The case settled the day before a trial that was to be conducted remotely over 2 days where the ever-adaptable Asbestos List has risen to meet the challenges presented by COVID-19.
