Recently a man was awarded $7.5 million in a lawsuit against six companies that manufactured or distributed cement piping that contained asbestos. He was diagnosed with a fatal cancer linked to asbestos exposure, mesothelioma.
A company or corporation that manufactures any product has the responsibility to protect the safety of the purchaser or worker from harm. Any manufactured product could have flaws or defects that were undetected before it was sold. The unsuspecting consumer, or in this case, worker then uses the product and when it fails, serious injuries or even fatalities can occur. In such cases, it is strongly advised that you enlist the assistance of Lauri J. Goldstein & Associates, PLLC, without delay.
This 57-year-old man 's job was to cut into the asbestos contaminated pipes so they would fit properly. The cutting created highly dangerous asbestos dust that left the worker covered from head to toe each day.
Asbestos was at one point a widely used mineral and was used in the manufacture of over 3,000 industrial and consumer products. Problems from asbestos don't usually manifest until decades after the work is done and can result in various types of cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
