Asbestos Death Verdict

We successfully represented the family of an insulation worker repeatedly exposed to asbestos dust and fibers at the plant where he worked.  As a result of this exposure, he developed mesothelioma and died.

During a six-day trial, the company he worked for argued that it was not liable for the worker’s illness.  However, using expert witness testimony, we were able to convince a jury that the company was at fault.  The expert said the worker could have inhaled a year’s worth of asbestos in a single day at the plant.

The jury awarded the man who died $4 million in damages for pain and suffering, as well as awarding $2 million damages to his widow and $500,000 to each of his four children. Special damages for medical and funeral bills totaled $215,000.
