More sick BHP workers expected to come forward after damages payout.
Lawyers for a terminally ill ex-Newcastle BHP steelworker, who has won the right to keep a massive damages payout, say they expect more sick workers to come forward.
A court has dismissed an appeal by BHP Billiton against the $2.2 million payout awarded to Steven Dunning, 54.
He has mesothelioma after inhaling asbestos dust while working in Newcastle in the 1980s.
The Court of Appeal agreed BHP had failed in its duty of care.
