New Illinois asbestos-lung cancer suit against 65 defendants

Gori Julian & Associates recently filed a lawsuit against 65 companies on behalf of an Illinois couple. The husband believes he developed asbestos lung cancer through exposure to the deadly fiber through a number of different products over the course of his 37-year career. The companies responsible for his exposure knew about the risks but failed to take the basic, reasonable steps that would have prevented his illness.

In addition to causing the fatal disease mesothelioma and a scarring of the lungs called asbestosis, exposure to asbestos is known to cause lung cancer. The two common types of this cancer care called small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer.

Our client has worked a variety of jobs in which he was exposed to asbestos, including as a U.S. Army mechanic, a Mississippi river boat deckhand, a city bus mechanic, and a power plant operator for the Tennessee Valley Authority and for the Army Corps of Engineers.

Since being stricken by asbestos lung cancer, he has become disabled, suffers from disfigurement, and undergone enormous pain and mental anguish. Beyond that, the cancer has caused him to incur major medical expenses while at the same time shortening his career. He has been deprived of the opportunity to earn a substantial amount of the income he would otherwise has earned just as his medical bills were growing.

He is seeking compensation for his medical bills and lost income, as well as for his pain, suffering and other noneconomic losses, plus court costs and any other relief the court finds appropriate. If the court finds the defendants’ actions went beyond mere negligence, he is also seeking punitive damages in amounts sufficient to punish them for those actions and deter them and other companies from inflicting similar harm upon others.
