Lawyers from the Industrial Disease teams at Birchall Blackburn Law will be attending this year’s Action Mesothelioma Day in Manchester on 04 July 2014. Each year in Manchester, and cities across the country, people join together to raise awareness of mesothelioma, remember and honor the victims and promote an Action Mesothelioma Charter. The Charter includes a call for speedy and accurate diagnosis for sufferers, good quality treatment, funding of research into mesothelioma and for employers to provide safe working environments.
Helen Bradley, Partner, attends these events every year with her team. “Each year Action Mesothelioma Day is a very moving and poignant event – asbestos exposure continues to have devastating consequences which often manifest several decades after exposure to asbestos. It is a unique opportunity for loved ones and their legal representatives to raise concerns to the Members of Parliament and fight for justice for victims of this devastating disease”.
Details of this year’s event are to follow.
