Mesothelioma Victims Center helps victims with new initiative

Victims suffering from mesothelioma across the nation, including many here in Madison County, know how important it is to seek legal representation when filing a personal injury case. But often times, people are talked into obtaining a lawyer who may not have all the necessary knowledge that it takes to deal with such an intricate case, resulting in victims being financially shortchanged.

Auto mechanic's widow files asbestos lawsuit

The widow of a deceased auto mechanic and naval employee has filed a lawsuit against the companies she says caused her husband to be exposed to asbestos and asbestos-related products throughout his career. As such, she says, those companies are responsible for her husband's death.

Former Navy employee files asbestos lawsuit

A man who was in the U.S. Navy and who worked for a private university for several years has filed a lawsuit against more than two dozen companies who he says are responsible for his asbestos-related illness and its consequential pain, medical expenses and loss of wages. Neither the Navy nor the university are named as defendants in the lawsuit, but solely the companies that produced, imported and sold the asbestos products.

Court reinstates vacated asbestos award

Earlier this year, a state supreme court struck down the damages award in an asbestos lawsuit, finding that the widow of a deceased Navy seaman should not be compensated for her husband's pain and suffering and for her own loss of society. Now, the same court has reinstated the portion of the damages awarded for pain and suffering, finding that the federal Jones Act permits such an award.

Court: Marriage before asbestos exposure not required

Earlier this month, an appeals court handed down an interesting ruling in connection with an asbestos claim filed by the wife of a man who contracted mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos at work. Overturning a lower court's ruling, the three-judge panel ruled that the husband and wife need not have been married at the time of the husband's asbestos exposure in order for the wife to have a valid claim of loss of consortium.

Jury awards $32 million for Navy vet's mesothelioma

An 18-year Navy veteran who developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos on Navy vessels has received a substantial jury verdict in his lawsuit against two industrial manufacturing companies that provided asbestos-laden valves, gaskets and boiler assemblies for the ships he served on. The New York jury awarded the vet $16 million in compensation for past pain and suffering and an additional $16 million for future pain and suffering.

Navy veteran wins multi-million dollar mesothelioma lawsuit

Earlier this month, we wrote about a $2.4 million verdict that was awarded to a former Navy veteran who had developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos throughout his decade of service on Navy ships. Now, another former naval shipyard employee has been awarded damages after almost 20 years of working in the boiler rooms of several Navy vessels resulted in a diagnosis of pleural mesothelioma.

Renowned forensic sculptor succumbs to mesothelioma

Before Frank Bender became a forensic sculptor and an invaluable asset to several Philadelphia-area police agencies, and before he became a savior to the families of murder victims who had gone years without answers, he was a member of the United States Navy who spent many years sleeping on Navy vessels. And it was because of those years that Bender developed the mesothelioma that would ultimately take his life when he was just 70 years old.

Navy veteran awarded multi-million damages in asbestos lawsuit

Although mesothelioma is common among workers in industries such as general contractors and construction workers, railroad employees, and heating and cooling installers and maintenance workers, it is especially prevalent among U.S. Navy and other military veterans. This is because naval shipyard employees worked with products containing asbestos on a daily basis. Boilers, hydraulic assemblies, gaskets, adhesives, and thermal insulation are just a few examples of the many asbestos-laden products regularly encountered by Navy veterans.

Department of Defense offers grants for mesothelioma research

Every year, around 2,500 people are diagnosed with some form of mesothelioma in the United States. Although anyone is susceptible to the disease, there are several occupations, such as plumbing, railroad work, heating and cooling, general contracting, and similar jobs, that leave employees at a higher risk for the disease.
