The specialist asbestos team at Hugh James have been instructed by Mrs Angela Monaghan to investigate a civil compensation claim following her diagnosis with asbestos related lung cancer, Mesothelioma.
They believe that Mrs Monaghan’s late husband Mr Owen Anthony Monaghan was exposed to asbestos whilst he was working as a steel fixer and as a labourer at the Texaco Refinery in Pembrokeshire, between the mid 1970s and mid 1980s.
Mrs Monaghan and her family is now appealing for help from former colleagues who might be able to shed some light on the use of asbestos at the Texaco Refinery and how Mr Monaghan might have come into contact with the harmful substance.
Mrs Monaghan’s family commented:
“It was a huge shock to think I may have been exposed to asbestos as a result of my husband’s work at the refinery. I would be grateful of any information anyone is able to provide as to how asbestos was used at the refinery at this time which may assist my case.”
Angharad Jones, Asbestos related solicitor at Hugh James’ Cardiff office said:
“It would be really beneficial to be able to speak to some of Mr Monaghan’s former work colleagues. I would encourage anyone who has information about asbestos exposure at Texaco refinery to come forward, even if they didn’t work directly with Mr Monaghan. Mrs Monaghan and her family will be extremely grateful to anyone who is able to provide assistance”.
Anyone who worked with Mr Monaghan, or who worked for the Texaco Refinery in Pembrokeshire in the 1960s, 1970s or 1980s, who has information regarding asbestos exposure should contact Angharad Jones at Hugh James on 02920 391 100.
