Well I've survived (well nearly there anyway) 0ver 4 years of fighting to prove I have asbestosis and the court hearing starts next week !!!!
It's been a long road and lots of petty arguments from the defence team as they don't want to accept liability. Some of their team have already agreed liability for excessive exposer, negligence in protecting me and even admitted that my exposure has been sufficient to cause me to develop asbestosis......I have severe pleural plaques like an ex colleague and another close colleague died from an asbestos related lung disease 5 years ago- ...........I'm living on borrowed time but managed to survive to get to court even though I have picked up a lung infection this week which complicates things but I will attend court. (bring on the steroids )
The judge has only to decide one thing. Which doctors evidence he believes ?? The compensation is absolutely no use to me as I'm practically housebound (last out in August). But it can benefit my wife and children in the form of a little security for their futures
Just wish me luck -
Ps hope everyone is doing as well as possible and not stressing to much about xmas
Take care and all the best for the future
