The Gori Law Firm 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.
The Gori Law Firm 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.
If you thought that the deadly effects of products containing asbestos were long over, you should know that, even now, courts throughout Illinois see new asbestos injury and wrongful death lawsuits filed on a regular basis. This is because people can still develop asbestos-related illness many years after exposure, and also because companies continue to manufacture projects containing asbestos and other deadly components.
