Family Seeks Former Employees of Lumley Saville and Ransomes & Rapier
13 Apr 2020
We are acting on behalf of the family of David Mann who sadly recently died of an asbestos-related disease called mesothelioma. This is an aggressive form of cancer that affects the lining of the lung.
The family have instructed Fozia Hussain at the Asbestos Law Partnership to investigate when and where David was exposed to asbestos, and to seek justice for his untimely death.
Before his death, David revealed that he was exposed to asbestos whilst working for two employers – Lumley Saville and then Ransomes & Rapier.
Lumley Saville was a subsidiary of Saville Tractors and was based in Stratford-upon-Avon. David worked here in the late 1960s and the early 1970s as a Fitter. He believed he was likely exposed to asbestos when servicing and repairing asbestos brake and clutch pads.
After leaving Lumley Saville, David worked for Ransomes & Rapier, the large crane manufacturer, based in Ipswich. He worked here throughout the 1970s as a Heavy Plant Fitter. Similarly, he came across asbestos when repairing and servicing brake and gear pads on the cranes.
The family’s solicitor, Fozia Hussain, a specialist mesothelioma solicitor from The Asbestos Law Partnership commented:
“David is another tragic victim of the use of asbestos in brake pads. Although the level of dust exposure might have seemed trivial at the time, the impact is no less devastating to David’s family.” Fozia Hussain at the Asbestos Law Partnership.
If you worked for either of these firms in this period, and can recall coming across asbestos, we would like to speak to you, especially if you worked as Fitter, and particularly if you worked with David.
