Success for Alexander Macpherson in High Court mesothelioma case

Judgment has been handed down in Hawkes v Warmex Ltd in which Deputy High Court Judge Peter Marquand held that on the available evidence the deceased had not been exposed to asbestos while making electric blankets at a factory in the late 1940s. The decision is interesting because of its consideration of duties under the Asbestos Industry Regulations, the Factories Act and at common law.

Alexander Macpherson, instructed by BLM, appeared for the successful Defendant.
