A significant confidential settlement was achieved today in the case of W v MOD which involved the deceased – a Flight Sergeant, who was exposed to asbestos whilst serving in the RAF between 1971 and 1993. His claim against the MOD related to his exposure from working and living accommodation at various RAF bases in the UK and from flying Nimrod MR1 and MR2 aircraft. Much of the accommodation had been constructed in the 1950s and 1960s with asbestos insulation on the walls and ceilings which was in a poor a dilapidated state. The MOD vigorously denied liability but shortly before proceedings were served, made a full admission of liability. Settlement has been achieved a few weeks before trial in a claim brought by his widow.
Edwin was instructed by Phil Gower of Simpson Millar, Cardiff.
