Widow of Former GEC / Marconi Employee Appeals For Help From Former Work Colleagues
15 Oct 2019
Our client, Pauline Martin, is appealing to colleagues who worked with her husband, Tony, at GEC/Marconi in Coventry, to get in touch with her solicitor to help with her claim for justice for his death from an asbestos related illness.
Tony Martin worked for GEC/Marconi for almost his whole working career, from 1962 until 1999. He worked as an electrical test engineer. Tony sadly passed away last year due to mesothelioma, an asbestos-related disease affecting the lining of the lung.
Before his death Tony told a benefits advisor GEC was where he came across asbestos.
Tony worked at GEC’s Binley site and at their sites at Spon Street and Helen Street in Coventry.
Tony spent most of his time working at the Telephone Works at Binley, testing trunk radio transmission equipment and fibre-optic transmission equipment. Many of the areas that Tony worked in contained asbestos lagging, which was regularly disturbed by maintenance men. Tony also used asbestos containing equipment to do his job.
His widow has now teamed up with Birmingham based asbestos specialists, The Asbestos Law Partnership, to bring a claim for compensation for Tony’s illness and death.
If you worked at any of these GEC sites between 1962 and 1999, and can remember coming across asbestos then we would like to speak to you. We are particularly interested if you worked as an electrical test engineer or in maintenance and especially if you worked with Tony.
