Asbestos claim solicitors have appealed for anyone who has knowledge of the workplace asbestos exposure of a former teacher from Manchester to step forward and assist with his widow's bid for compensation.
They believe that the man was exposed to asbestos dust while working for more than five decades teaching maths and science in secondary schools in Greater Manchester and Lancashire. An inquest at North Staffordshire Coroner's Court recorded a verdict of death by industrial disease.
The 81-year-old died in a Stoke hospice last August after being diagnosed with mesothelioma.
"He was very health conscious. He never smoked, he rarely drank and he liked to keep fit. Almost overnight he turned into a decrepit old man who could no longer keep up with the boys. He would cough so much he couldn't catch his breath, it racked his whole body," commented the man's widow.
Asbestos claim solicitors say that any colleagues who worked with the man at Heywood Secondary School, St Michael's Church of England Secondary School in Chorley, Bolton's Smithills, Flixton Girls' School, and Royton and Crompton Secondary School may be useful in providing witness statements to expedite the claim.
