Sarah Wolf's Profile Picture

Sarah has specialised in personal injury law on behalf of claimants since qualifying as a solicitor in 1993.

She has a particular interest in industrial disease, and since 2008 has acted exclusively for victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos - related conditions. She represents a broad range of clients, including  laggers, construction workers, plumbers, teachers,  surveyors and car mechanics, as well as those exposed to asbestos dust and fibres through washing their spouses’ work clothes.

Sarah’s recent successful cases include:
 
  • A claim on behalf of the widow of a teacher who developed mesothelioma which he attributed to asbestos exposure at the school where he worked for many years. Despite meeting strenuous resistance from the local authority concerned, the case settled shortly before trial, and the award included a significant element to compensate her for the loss of her husband’s contribution to the household income.
  • Recovery of £400,000 on behalf a 59 year old mesothelioma victim, including his loss of earnings and a sum to reflect the amount he would have contributed to the cost of his children’s education.
  • A claim on behalf of the family of a carpenter who had been exposed to asbestos while working for multiple employers, several of which had ceased trading. It was successfully argued that had he not become ill he would have completely renovated the family home, and the settlement included an amount to compensate for the fact that he was unable to do so.
  • £120,000 for a mesothelioma sufferer who was exposed to asbestos while working for a major oil company, received within six months of diagnosis.

Sarah’s other successes include the recovery of £350,000 on behalf of a client who suffered a stroke following a whiplash injury.

Sarah is accredited as a Senior Litigator by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.

She has been described by her clients as “patient”, “compassionate” and “approachable”, and has been commended by her peers for her dedication to achieving the best possible outcome for her clients.
