Dad’s asbestos exposure at issue in daughter’s mesothelioma suit

| Feb 3, 2012 | Mesothelioma/Asbestos-Related Illness |

Often, when we see a mesothelioma lawsuit filed by a son or daughter regarding their parent’s disease and asbestos exposure, it is a situation in which the parent filed the suit and then succumbed to the disease before the case was fully resolved. In a recent lawsuit filed against several national companies, however, the plaintiff is suing on behalf of herself, claiming that she suffered both emotional and financial losses as the result of her father’s death.

According to the suit, the plaintiff’s father worked as a seaman for Sabine Towing and Transportation Co. for more than three decades, ending in 1973. During his employment, the father was exposed to asbestos, causing him to ultimately develop mesothelioma. As a result of his diagnosis, he incurred significant medical costs, the lawsuit claims, and suffered intense physical pain and suffering, physical impairment, emotional distress and mental anguish. He ultimately passed away from the disease.

The daughter then filed a lawsuit against Sabine and several other companies, including ExxonMobil Corp., Chromally American, Kirby Corp. and Sequa Corp. She claims that the company negligently designed the vessels on which her father worked with asbestos and other unsafe materials, failed to design the vessels so as to protect employees from asbestos exposure, and failed to design the vessels with proper warnings for employees of the dangers of being exposed to the deadly asbestos fibers.

The daughter is seeking damages for burial costs and the loss of her father’s household services and his love and support, with interest and court costs.
