Company appealing asbestos payout
KATE CAMPBELL, The West Australian November 22, 2011, 5:35 pm
A mesothelioma sufferer awarded more than $2 million compensation after contracting the disease from playing in asbestos waste as a child is “very disappointed” the company deemed responsible has decided to appeal the ruling.
Supreme Court Justice Michael Corboy last month awarded Perth man Simon Lowes $2.07 million in damages after finding James Hardie had caused or significantly contributed to his cancer.
Mr Lowes, now a 42-year-old father of two, contracted mesothelioma after playing in asbestos waste dumped by James Hardie at the popular Castledare miniature railway site in Wilson in the early 1970s.
