Dust exposure claim
We acted for one of a number of defendants in a claim where the plaintiff alleged loss of sight due to exposure to silica dust. Many defendants settled with the plaintiff, making payments totalling $300,000. We persevered with factual inquiries, which ultimately led to conclusive evidence that a loss of sight, such as that suffered by the plaintiff, was unrelated to dust exposure. The plaintiff’s verdict was just $330,000 – well below the initial claim of $2 million. Final costs were a fraction of the potential verdict.
