It has been alleged that when the Golden Wonder factory was built in Corby in the 1960s that asbestos was used. Exposure to asbestos can cause a wide range of often fatal conditions, such as mesothelioma. The symptoms can take years (often decades) to come to light. If you (or a loved one) think you are the victim of mesothelioma or other condition caused by exposure at this (or any other) building or factory site then it is important to make the right decisions regarding how your case is handled.
Recent press coverage alleging a possible link between the building of the factory and mesothelioma may have led you to think that your only choice (or your best choice) is a class action via a solicitor quite literally hundreds of miles away: not so.

The issue of mesothelioma, potentially caused by exposure to asbestos during the building of the Golden Wonder factory in Corby during the mid 1960’s has gained a lot of publicity recently after George Usher, of Cumbria, who was 77, died after a short battle with mesothelioma. He worked on the construction of the Golden Wonder factory on Rockingham Road in Corby, in 1964. He believed that he may have been exposed to asbestos dust during a short period of employment with Yorkshire-based engineering and construction firm NG Bailey in 1964.
