Witness Appeal: Did you work with Anthony Rudnicki from 1971 to 1983?

The specialist asbestos claims team at Hugh James have been instructed by Mr Anthony Rudnicki to investigate a civil compensation claim following his diagnosis with mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer, the only known cause of which is previous exposure to asbestos. To pursue a successful civil compensation claim, we need to be able to demonstrate how Mr Rudnicki came into contact with asbestos during his working life.

Mr Rudnicki worked at the below factories between 1971 to 1983:

  • Starling Press, Risca
  • Crown Noodle, Penmaemawr
  • Pensford Press, Pontllanfraith

We believe that Mr Rudnicki could have been exposed to asbestos materials whilst working at these factories.

Mr Rudnicki is now appealing for assistance from former colleagues who might be able to shed some light on the potential use of asbestos in these factories and how he may have come into contact with the harmful substance.

Asbestos-related solicitor at Hugh James’ Cardiff office, Emma James, has said: “It would be a great help to speak with Mr Rudnicki’s former colleagues. I would encourage anyone who has information about asbestos exposure at these factories to come forward. Mr Rudnicki and his family will be extremely grateful to anyone who is able to assist.”

Anyone who has information regarding asbestos exposure at these factories should contact Emma James at Hugh James on 029 2267 5825.
