Mr J was exposed to dangerous, carcinogenic chemicals at his work in a dye factory, and contracted bladder cancer as a result. He was awarded £20,000.00. These damages were awarded on a provisional basis, so that if the cancer returns, he can come back to court for further compensation. He said, “I was satisfied with my damages; it is £20,000 more than I thought I would get”.


Mr K was exposed to excessive levels of noise at work, and suffered deafness as a result. He was awarded £8750. He said, “Wonderful”.


Mr P was also deafened by noise at work, and was awarded over £6000. He said, “you have done a brilliant job – very well done”.
