£11k for a life with ME?
Life is cheap...
Seems that way doesn't it? I think it is a sum related to the health and safety breach more than to the individuals claims for compensation - which we haven't heard about so presumably have yet to happen. This 'win' establishes the case I would say in that regard at least - though Valentijn would probably know more than me about this
I would like to hear more about:
The illness wasn't immediate of course but I wonder how they were able to establish the connection and if the link was to deteriorating health resulting in ME or to ME itself.
Either way, it was important I felt to highlight this case because it again establishes in law a chemical trigger, and of course brings recognition of ME.
ME is being talked about more and more as something nasty and real; and I hope there is a personal claim for compensation - perhaps we might learn more about how the link was established which could help other people and bring more attention to ME.
The WHO used to classify decorating as a carcinogenic profession. My husband's a decorator; you would need the metabolism of an ox not to show any effects after a few years. Great this guy got some recognition, lets hope he gets some decent compensation.
