A widower whose wife died from the asbestos related cancer mesothelioma has been awarded compensation. June Probin, from Crewe in the UK, died at the age of sixty seven from the asbestos related cancer. She is said to have contracted the disease as a result of exposure to asbestos fibers from her Dad’s overalls over five decades ago.
According to reports Probin suffered secondary exposure to asbestos as a result of her father’s work clothing. The trained nurse died in April of last year from the deadly cancer, for which there is currently no cure. He father worked for Crewe Railway Works.
Seventy three year old Jack Probin, her widower, has now been awarded compensation as a result of the untimely death of his wife. He said: “It was a massive shock when June was diagnosed with mesothelioma. June knew it was an asbestos-related disease and knew straight away how serious it was. It is terrifying to think that the whole family was exposed to asbestos dust from her dad’s overalls yet he was never warned about the dangers.”
He also said: “I still miss June every day and nothing can ever replace what the family has lost.” His lawyer added: “June’s dad had no idea that he was exposing her to a risk of fatal illness by merely coming home from work at lunchtime.”
