Stephen Glynn was instructed in the tragic case of Julia Popple who died aged 54 from mesothelioma following exposure to asbestos in her early career.
Mrs Popple worked as an assistant music teacher at a state school in Newham, East London in the 1980s when she was in her late 20s. She was only in employment there for three years but suffered what the local authority admitted was culpable exposure to respirable asbestos dust. The school contained lots of asbestos materials and some of the walls comprised asbestos insulation board. Lots of the classrooms had asbestos ceiling tiles and Julia often went into a broom cupboard to fetch a dustpan and brush when this cupboard was itself contaminated with low but, foreseeably harmful levels of asbestos dust and fibre.
Julia left the school and went on to continue her teaching career elsewhere but tragically she developed mesothelioma at the age of 52 and died 2 years later’ leaving her husband Martin and 3 children, the youngest of whom is 16. Julia suffered awfully in her final months. Stephen Glynn was prepared to take on the claim under a CFA well before the defendant admitted liability. He advised and drafted pleading which led to the settlement this week of the claim in the sum of £450,000.
Stephen was instructed by Boyes Turner Solicitors.
