Plaintiff lists 138 defendants in mesothelioma lawsuit

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it can be difficult to figure out when and where you were exposed to the asbestos that would ultimately cause your disease. This difficulty is compounded by the fact that it usually takes at least 30 years after that exposure to asbestos for mesothelioma to develop.

This is likely why a man in Colorado Springs, Colorado, recently filed a mesothelioma lawsuit in which he named 138 companies as defendants. The lawsuit alleges that he was exposed to asbestos during his 25-year employment as an electrician and laborer, during which he worked with several products containing asbestos which were manufactured by the defendant companies.

The man was diagnosed with mesothelioma in March of this year. In his personal injury lawsuit, he claims that he never smoked, and that his diagnosis was the result of his exposure to asbestos during his employment.

The man alleges that the defendants knew or should have known of the dangers of asbestos exposure. He is suing them for negligence, breach of express and implied warranty, strict liability, conspiracy, misrepresentation, and duty to warn, among other theories of liability.

If you are uncertain about the cause of your exposure can, this can create a significant obstacle in a personal injury lawsuit against the people or companies that are responsible for your illness. In these situations, it is helpful to have an experienced mesothelioma attorney on your side, to help you wade through the legal and logistical roadblocks to financial recovery.
