A living mesothelioma claimant was employed in a senior management role with complex high earnings and bonus scheme. The forensic accountant acting for him had estimated loss of earnings and pension benefits at £3million.
Instructed by the defendant, we identified two significant errors and omissions in respect of actual pension benefits and bonuses received, and numerous other smaller ones. Our assessment of the losses was £1.8million.
The matter was settled at a round-table meeting, with the claim reduced in line with our assessment.
