Gori Julian sues 59 companies on behalf of mesothelioma victim

Gori Julian & Associates recently filed a ten-count lawsuit against 59 defendant corporations on behalf of Missouri woman who developed mesothelioma after decades of exposure to asbestos-laden products. She and her husband are seeking compensation for more than $200,000 in economic losses caused by the disease, along with appropriate punitive damages against any defendant found to have knowingly exposed her and other workers to the deadly fiber without warning or attempting to mitigate the damage.

According to the lawsuit, the Missouri woman was exposed to asbestos-containing products in many jobs she held throughout her career. Beginning in 1967, she worked as an operating technician at a number of hospitals, along with as a photographer, a hair dresser, a truck driver and a general laborer. All or most of those occupations carried a risk of asbestos exposure.

The companies named as defendants knew or should have known of the dangers associated with asbestos, including mesothelioma, a painful incurable cancer that is terminal according to current medical knowledge. It develops over the course of decades and is usually undiagnosed until treatment options are limited.

Nevertheless, we allege, the defendants and failed to exercise reasonable care in limiting the job-related mesothelioma risk.

As a result of her mesothelioma, the woman is now disabled and disfigured, and has suffered substantial physical and emotional pain. She was also unable to work and lost considerable income she would otherwise have been able to earn.

The couple is seeking at least $200,000 in compensation for her lost income, medical expenses and other financial costs the defendants’ negligence allegedly caused her, along with $150,000 in additional compensatory damages. In addition, they are asking for punitive damages of at least $100,000, or whatever the court deems sufficient to punish the defendant corporations and deter them from putting their workers at risk in the future.
