Illinois man died of asbestos disease, The Gori Law Firm lawyers file

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.

Attorneys Randy L. Gori and Barry Julian recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit for the estate of a man who died of lung cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Although a number of the sources of the asbestos are known definitively, the lawsuit has been filed against a total of 60 companies that allegedly contributed to his illness.

These companies manufactured products they knew contained asbestos even though they knew or should have known of its lethal effects, the lawsuit claims. Nevertheless, numerous manufacturers failed to exercise a basic level of reasonable care, and this man and others have died as a result.

The deceased was first exposed to asbestos through his father, who worked with asbestos when he was employed by Nikki Brothers. The man himself worked as a bulldozer driver, a flooring maker, a wood paneling maker and a chemical mixer during his career. All of these industries are known to have used asbestos-containing projects.

The man's asbestos-related diseases disfigured and disabled him. He has suffered enormous physical and emotional pain, along with disabilities that kept him from working. He is seeking compensation for his pain, anguish and disfigurement, his lost wages due to disability, and his medical bills. He is also seeking punitive and exemplary damages, as appropriate, to punish the defendants for their callous disregard for his health and safety.

Asbestos-related lung cancer, mesothelioma and other conditions continue to affect workers and consumers nationwide. We still need to hold manufacturers responsible when their negligence and wrongdoing have such catastrophic effects.
