David v Honeywell Normalair-Garrett Ltd: QBD 2 Mar 2006

The claimant sought damages for personal injuries arising from exposure to depleted uranium whilst working for the defendant. An earlier claim had been compromised. The defendant denied liabilty and relied also on the compromise.
Held: The evidence from expert witnesses was conflicting, but there was no sufficient evidence of exposure of the claimant to depleted uranium, or that his condition was caused by exosure to depleted uranium at his place of work. Furthermore the compromise agreement had been effective to defeat this claim.
