Mesothelioma lawsuit accuses 100+ companies of negligence

| Jan 30, 2013 | Mesothelioma/Asbestos-Related Illness |

No individual should have to face asbestos exposure because a company acted negligently. Asbestos exposure can be very harmful to an individual. Such exposure can result in individuals developing mesothelioma or other serious medical conditions. Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related medical conditions can be very impactful on their victims.

Recently, an asbestos exposure case has arisen in West Virginia. The case involves a man from Dunbar, West Virginia.

The man claims that he was exposed to asbestos at various job sites he worked at. The man also claims he was exposed to asbestos through his mother’s workplace.

Reportedly, the man has been diagnosed with mesothelioma and asbestosis. The man claims that his development of these conditions was the result of the above-mentioned asbestos exposure.

The man and his wife have brought a lawsuit in a court in West Virginia in connection to the above allegations. The lawsuit names over 100 companies as defendants. In this lawsuit, the man and his wife allege that these companies committed negligence (such as failure to warn) which led to the man’s asbestos exposure.

The article on the West Virginia Record’s website which reported this story did not mention what specific relief the man and his wife are seeking in their lawsuit. One wonders what will ultimately happen in this case.

As the allegations in this case illustrate, asbestos exposure can cause great harm to an individual. One hopes that all companies make sure to not commit negligence like that alleged in this case. Ones also hopes that companies are held accountable when they commit negligence which results in an individual getting exposed to asbestos and developing an asbestos-related medical condition (such as mesothelioma).
