|INJURY SUMMARY||Chronic occupational asthma|
|CASE RESOLUTION||Case settled in January 2023 £48,500 awarded|
|CASE HANDLER||Husinya Amatullah|
Our client was working in a workshop in a factory that painted cars. Due to blocked filters, paint fumes leaked into the main workshop where PPE was not required to be worn.
The chemicals from the spray paints leaked into the general workshop from the spray booths. Ventilation systems were inadequate to deal with the fumes that leaked into the workshop causing our client to develop chronic occupational asthma.
The client suffered breathing issues and their lung function was affected. They were dismissed from their employment on health grounds. The client has chronic occupational asthma.
Our client instructed Jefferies in 2018 and was represented by solicitor Husniya Amatullah.
The claim was settled in January 2023 for £48,500. The settlement included damages for both future and past loss of earnings. The client said ‘Really efficient, excellent work from Husniya Amatullah would recommend Jefferies Solicitors.”
