Mesothelioma Litigation

Former UK construction worker suffering from mesothelioma
A former construction worker in the UK who is reportedly suffering from malignant mesothelioma is seeking out his former co-workers to aid him in his battle for asbestos compensation, according to the Wimbledon Guardian.

Ronald Dunk, 72, was diagnosed with the rare cancer this year, after he reportedly worked in Surrey for a number of years, the news source said. During his career, he was reportedly employed by Carlton Contractors, during which time Dunk claims to have cut asbestos boards with a saw without wearing a face mask or protective clothing.

The news source reports Dunk is also claiming to have been exposed to asbestos while he worked as a sub-contractor at Wates Construction Ltd., where he was allegedly tasked with cutting asbestos sheets and nailing them to walls.

Dunk's asbestos attorneys told the news source they are looking for the man's former colleagues, who "may have key information about the presence of asbestos and working practices at these premises."

In addition to mesothelioma, asbestos exposure can cause lung cancer and asbestosis.
