Case summary:

  • C worked for over 50 years an electrical engineer, making industrial scale switchgear for power stations where a lot of asbestos was used in the internal insulation of copper casings.
  • Later in his career he became an engineer on site, maintaining boilers and buildings where asbestos roofing and pipe-lagging was abundant. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma while visiting the hospital, where he died shortly after.
  • The evidence required would need to be an engineer’s report, which can be quite costly.

Comment from Temple:

“Although mesothelioma ATE insurance premiums are still recoverable, it is still a necessity due to the cost of reports and higher issue fee.
Most Claimants’ do not discover they have mesothelioma until the later stages of their life and the cost of these disbursements would be out of reach for most.
ATE insurance allows the estate to pursue the rightful compensation at this traumatic time. Temple will continue to provide this cover for sufferers of mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases .”
