Asbestos Victims Finally Get Compensation

97 Indian citizens poisoned by asbestos have finally secured compensation for injuries sustained at the hands of a British company - Turner & Newall Ltd (T&N). For more than 60 years T&N operated asbestos factories in India. The company processed asbestos and sold a range of asbestos products. According to campaigners, conditions were appalling and employees were routinely exposed to massive levels of cancer-causing asbestos fibre. When workers got sick or died, they were quickly replaced by others; no fuss, no mess and what's more, no compensation.

However, the tide has turned and finally agreement has been made regarding compensation.

This just goes to show that there is justice out there for sufferers and their families!
