Women and Mesothelioma – Asbestos Exposure – Asbestos and Ovarian Cancer

 

AHN | All Headline News | Global News

Asbestos Now Linked With Ovarian Cancer


April 22, 2009 9:38 a.m. EST

Topics: Health

David Goodhue - AHN Reporter

Washington,DC (AHN) - Commercial asbestos, long known to cause lung disease, has now been linked to ovarian cancer, according to the World Health Organization.

Earlier this month, WHO's International Agency for Research issued a reconfirmation that all commercial asbestos fiber causes lung cancer andmesothelioma. But the agency also said that there is enough evidence to say asbestos causes ovarian cancer as well.

The agency also linked asbestos with cancer of the larynx.

Former assistant U.S. Surgeon General Dr. RichardLemen said in a statement that theIARC's linking of asbestos with ovarian cancer "will have far-reaching implications to allwomen exposed to asbestos."

Lemen, who was influential in the 1970s in linking asbestos with lung cancer, said the ovarian cancer link will also open up new asbestos-related cancer prevention efforts.

Asbestos Fibers on Furniture – Asbestos Symptoms – Mesothelioma and Women

 

Mesothelioma Symptoms TargetWomen's Health

Written by Amy Wister   

Friday, 07 May 2010 04:51

Mesothelioma is a very rare form of cancer that develops in the membranes or protective sacs surrounding various organs of the body. These membranes are referred to as themesothelium and theyprotects organs by producing a type of liquid which allows for mobility of the organs. Specifically, in the case of the lungs, themesothelium fluid allows ease of movement when breathing. Mesothelioma cancer can begin anywhere in themesothelium and can be either benign or cancerous.Exposure to asbestos fibers is a known cause ofmesothelioma.

Asbestos is resistant to heat and has been used as the main material in roofing, waterproofing compounds, flooring and insulation. Its versatile nature made it a useful component in various products on the market, but it is extremely dangerous if inhaled, even in very small amounts. Inhaled asbestos fibers pass through the respiratory tract and come into contact with linings of the lungs which can result in pleuralmesothelioma. Ingestion of asbestos fibers can affect other linings in the abdominal cavity which results in peritonealmesothelioma. The real tragedy of asbestosmesothelioma is that it usually takes many years for symptoms to develop.

The signs ofmesothelioma are typically weight loss with no change in diet, extreme tiredness, difficulty swallowing, hoarse or husky voice, difficulty breathing,a cough that lasts for an extended period of time, chest pain or back pain, extreme sweating and recurring fever. Peritonealmesothelioma commonly affects the bowel, liver and spleen an often shows signs similar to other bowel related diseases. The first symptoms are typically pain in the abdomen, constipation or diarrhea, an increase in the size of the belly area, nausea, vomiting, fever and anemia.

It is important for an individual to seek medical care if they have had any of these symptoms or have been exposed to asbestos earlier in their life. Mesothelioma takes time to develop so the exposure may have occurred as long ago as 50 years earlier. A trained cancer specialist is the best person to diagnosismesothelioma.

Mesothelioma symptoms may occur many months before the disease is detected by a medical professional. Pleuralmesothelioma is the most common form ofmesothelioma and represents two thirds of all themesothelioma cases reported. The pleura lining of the lungs and chest are the areas affected by pleuralmesothelioma.

Asbestos is still found almost everywhere, at home, at work, or in public buildings. Workers involved in building demolition should take extra care and precautions to avoid contact with asbestos through inhalation or ingestion. The low rate ofmesothelioma cases detected over the past 20 years is increasing as more individuals develop symptoms and seek medical attention.

In theUnited States almost 2,000 new cases ofmesothelioma are detected each year. Mesothelioma cancer has historically occurred mostly in men because they were typically the ones involved in activities that required the use of asbestos. Industrial workers, miners, railroad workers, and those involved in the construction and insulation industries were most susceptible. Most recently, the incidence ofmesothelioma in women has increased as we begin to learn more about how asbestos fibers remained in clothing, automobiles, furniture, and affected an industrial worker’s entire household.

Asbestos-Containing Clothes – Second Hand Exposure – Wrongful Death Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Suit alleges woman contractedmesothelioma by washing family's work clothes
6/7/2010 11:29 AM By Michelle Massey, East Texas Bureau 

TYLER-After years of cleaning theasbestos-containing clothes of her father, husband, and son, Claudia Headley wasdiagnosed with malignantmesothelioma and died from the disease on May 30, 2008.

Claudia's husband Robert and her sons Scott and Steven Headley filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Shell Energy North America (US) LP, Royal Dutch Shell PLC, Exxon Mobile Corp. andAlonUSA, as successor in interest toCosden Petroleum, on May 28 in the Tyler Division of the Eastern District of Texas.

According to the complaint, Claudia's father worked at a refinery inBig Spring for 38 years. Robert Headley and Scott Headley also worked for refineries.

"Decedent contractedmesothelioma as a result of household exposure to asbestos from repeatedlychecking the pockets of and washing her Family's clothes, which were coated with asbestos dust," the lawsuit claims.

The defendants are accused of breaching their duties to provide a safe place to work, to warn of the hazards of employment, to protect independent contractors from work related hazards, in taking precautions to protect the safety of others when an employee performs work that is inherently dangerous and to avoid a foreseeable risk of injury to others.

The defendants should have known that the materials their men worked around were "deleterious and highly harmful" to Claudia Headley's health and well-being, the family argues.

Further, the defendants knew that after working in this dusty, asbestos-ridden environment, it would naturally and unavoidably expose Claudia Headley to the same asbestos fibers, dust and particles.

The plaintiffs are seeking wrongful death damages for pecuniary loss, termination of the husband-wife relationship, mental anguish, loss of household services,termination of the parent-child relationship, necessary medical, funeral and burial expenses, exemplary damages, interest and court costs.

Scott W. Wert of Foster & Sear LLP of Grand Prairie is representing the plaintiffs. Jury trial requested.

U.S. District Judge Michael H. Schneider is assigned to the litigation.

Women and Mesothelioma – Asbestos Exposure – $15 Million Mesothelioma Jury Award

Baltimore city jury awards $15M formesothelioma death

Daily Record,The (Baltimore), May 16, 2010 by Danny Jacobs

ABaltimore city jury has awarded $15 million to the family of anOakland woman who died ofmesothelioma as aresult of her husband's exposure to asbestos in Ford brakes.

The judgment last month in favor of the family of Joan Dixon would be reduced to approximately $6 million after applyingMaryland's cap for non-economic damages, according to JonathanRuckdeschel, the family's lawyer.

The cap for 2008, the yearDixon was diagnosed, limits non- economic damages in wrongful-death claims by two or more individuals to just over $1 million. The awards toDixon's four daughters and her husband would be affected by the cap, but the $5 million awarded to Joan Dixon's estate would not be reduced,Ruckdeschel said.

If Ford appeals,Ruckdeschel said, he will challenge the validity of the damages cap on cross-appeal.

Harry S. Johnson ofWhiteford, Taylor & Preston LLP in Baltimore, Ford's lawyer, did not return calls seeking comment.

The alleged asbestos exposure occurred between the early 1960s and the late 1970s, according to the lawsuit.Dixon's husband, Bernard, worked a couple of nights a week at a garage owned by a friend,Ruckdeschel said. Bernard Dixon's garage work was primarily on the brakes of Ford cars,Ruckdeschel said.Dixon also worked on the family cars, also Fords,Ruckdeschel added.

"Mrs. Dixon was exposed to asbestos dust created by Mr. Dixon's work with and around asbestos-containing automobiles containing replacement parts for those automobiles," the complaint states.

Joan Dixon was diagnosed with malignantmesothelioma in March 2008 and died in February 2009.

Three other defendants in the case -- Honeywell International Inc., Georgia Pacific Corp. and Union Carbide Corp. -- reached out- of-court settlements prior to the 12-day trial before Judge John M. Glynn. The jury of five women and one man found against Ford in its cross-claims against the settled defendants,Ruckdeschel said.

The jury reached its verdict after less than three hours of deliberation, saidRuckdeschel, of TheRuckdeschel Law Firm LLC inEllicott City. He said the jury was not persuaded by the defense argument that asbestos in brakes cannot causemesothelioma.

"I think the jury simply didn't believe asbestos from brakes was different from any other form of asbestos," he said.

The family was grateful for the jury's verdict, he added.

"It was a difficult experience for them to go through their wife's and mother's death,"Ruckdeschel said.

Women and Mesothelioma – Asbestos Exposure – Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Lawsuits Alleging Asbestos Exposure Filed AgainstJacksonCounty Courthouse

Lawsuits Alleging Asbestos Exposure Filed Against Jackson County Courthouse

 

KANSAS CITY,MO - Anasbestos-related lawsuit claims the Jackson County Courthouse gave a long-time employee cancer and the woman's attorney saidshe may be the first of many victims.

This courthouse was built back in the 1930s when it was common to use asbestos in the insulation and the duct work. But it was remodeling work in the 80s that a pair of lawsuits said made courthouse workers vulnerable.

57-year-old Nancy Lopez worked on the sixth floor of the courthouse from 1975 to 2007. In her lawsuit, the administrative assistant said she was exposed to asbestos dust that came through the building's heating and cooling system.

Last April, she was diagnosed withmesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos.

"I don't think there's any chance on earth they're coincidental," Lopez's attorney LouAccurso said.

Accurso has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of all courthouse workers.

"The odds are that with that type of history and exposure that there's going to be others unfortunately," he said.

"Cancer in the building, anyone can get it, so yeah that would be a major concern," courthouse workerConise Harden said.

Harden said she's not worried for herself because she's only worked at the courthouse for two years.

"They are doing a lot of clean-up around here, they are doing a lot of improvements to the building, so I'm for sure that they're aware of what's actually going on and they are trying to correct it," she said.

2006 is when the county had asbestos removal work done. The lawsuit claims remodeling work in 1983 may have exposed thousands, includingAccurso himself. He was an assistant county prosecutor in the early 80's.

"I am nervous about myself, I get regular check-ups every year," he said. "But I think anybody that was in that courthouse from 1983 to 2006 has justifiable reason for concern."

In anticipation of this lawsuit, the courthouse recently had its indoor air quality tested. A notice posted inside the courthouse said current asbestos levels comply with state and federal guidelines.

But of course the lawsuit is about asbestos levels from three decades ago that might not cause cancer until now.

Women and Mesothelioma – Asbestos Legislation – Mesothelioma Settlement

Tennessee family settles with Alcoa following asbestos precedent

September 10th, 2009 by Wendi Lewis

alcoa logo

Almost one year after the Tennessee Supreme Court made a precedent-setting decision related to asbestos exposure, the Satterfield family has settled withAlcoa Aluminum. The settlement puts to rest a six-year legal fight by Doug and Donna Satterfield onbehalf of their daughter, Amanda, whodied of mesothelioma in 2005 as a result of years of exposure to asbestos brought home on her father’s work clothes, from his job at Alcoa .

 

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer caused exclusively by exposure toasbestos. It generally affects the lining of the chest and lungs, but also may affect the lining of the abdomen or, more rarely, the heart. There is no known cure formesothelioma. Mesothelioma has a long latency period, between 10 and 50 years from exposure to development of the disease. Historically, it was seen only in older males, usually factory or industrial workers. However, due to secondary exposure, such as being exposed to asbestos dust on clothing of workers (usually family members), as well as in the environment, it is being seen more often in younger people and women. Amanda was diagnosed withmesothelioma in her early 20s.

 

Exposure to asbestos also can cause a number of asbestos-related diseases and lung cancers, including asbestosis, a severe scarring of the lungs.

Amanda died two years after the Satterfield case was filed, a case initially lost in aBlountCounty court. However, the Tennessee Supreme Court ruled on Sept. 9, 2008 that relatives of employees who were exposed to asbestos also were eligible for claims against the company in the event of amesothelioma or asbestos-related disease diagnosis. The ruling established an employer’s “duty of care” that includes keeping others safe from hazardous materials an employee might unknowingly bring home from work.

 

Doug Satterfield, Amanda’s father, worked at Alcoa for 33 years, beginning in 1973. According to a report in CityView Magazine, the company was required by OSHA regulations in 1972 to prohibit employees who were exposed to asbestos from taking their clothes home to be laundered. However, the magazine reports, Alcoa allegedly did not comply with these regulations. Doug’s hair and clothes held asbestos dust from his day of work, and he unknowingly brought this deadly substance home to his baby daughter.

Women and Mesothelioma – Asbestos Exposure – $2 Million Mesothelioma Verdict

Illinois Jury Awards US$2 Million Verdict in Second Hand Asbestos Lawsuit

Source: EMSL Analytical, Inc.

Aug. 24, 2009

 

Woman dies frommesothelioma after repeatedlylaundering her husbands asbestos contaminated work clothes.

The dangerous from direct asbestos exposure are well documented in medical journals. A lesser known danger of asbestos exposure is from secondary exposure to the materials. This summer a jury inIllinois ruled on the side of a woman’s family who died from secondary asbestos exposure that occurred in the 1950s.

Leslie Corry recently died frommesothelioma, an asbestos related cancer. Nearly 60 years ago her first husband worked at an asbestos and rubber company and the suit claimed hiscontaminated working clothes exposed her to asbestos fibers that later caused her fatal cancer.

The popularity of asbestos by industry comes from its resistant to heat, electricity and many chemicals. Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicate mineral. It has long, thin fibrous crystals that have been used in many manufacturing processes and products until more recent times.

When aerosolized and inhaled the mineral fibers become embedded in lung tissue and can causemesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. In most cases as a person’s exposure to asbestos fibers increases, so to do their chances of developing asbestos related cancers and diseases later in life.

EMSL Analytical, one of the nation’s largest asbestos testing laboratories, has almost three decades of asbestos testing experience. “Because asbestos related cancers and diseases can take so long to manifest themselves in exposed individuals it is crucial to prevent exposure in the first place,” reported JoeFrasca, Executive Vice President for EMSL Analytical. “It’s important that the general public and workers understand the long term risks posed by asbestos exposure, both in the workplace and in the home. To help educate the public about the dangers we have provided two free educational asbestos poster available at our website,”Frasca continued.

Women and Mesothelioma– Asbestos Trades – Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Woman Allowed To Sue Over Husbands Mesothelioma Death

Posted by admin May 12th, 2009 | 

brakes

AGreenfield,Wisconsin woman has been granted the chance to sue the brake manufacturer that she says is responsible for the death of her husband. The District 1 Court of Appeals has given VickiTatera the ability to sue FMC Corp. for negligence after the company failed to inform users that their brakes contained asbestos.

Tatera’s husband, Walter, worked at a machine shop where he ground brake linings down to be installed in automobiles. Mrs.Tatera claims that the dust from the FMC Corp. brake linings led to hers husband’smesothelioma and death in 2004.

Exposure to airborne asbestos fibers can lead to a number of illnesses including asbestosis and malignantmesothelioma. Mesothelioma, a fatal form of cancer, usually begins in the pleura or peritoneum and around 2,000 new cases are diagnosed annually in theUnited States. Symptoms of asbestos related illnesses typically take between 20 and 50 years to appear and often include shortness of breath and chest pain. For peritonealmesothelioma symptoms include weight loss and abdominal pain. Currently, there is no cure formesothelioma but new treatments continue to be developed.

Asbestos was popularly used in a number of construction and insulation materials in the first half of the century. Not until the 1970’s were the dangers of asbestos made public and theU.S. government implemented regulations on its use.

FMC Corp. denies the allegations and the case will now go to trial.

Women and Mesothelioma – Asbestos Trades –Asbestos Mesothelioma Lawsuit

'Take home' liability could mean limitless liability for asbestos defendants
3/20/2009 12:28 PM By Staff Reports 

During a recent gathering of asbestos legal professionals, aBeverly Hills conference focused on one central theme in emerging litigation trends: a new generation of problems -- connected to the last -- will mean a new wave of cases against a new slate of defendants.

With more than three decades past since the peak ofasbestos manufacturing and use in theU.S., the focus of lawsuits has shifted to what is often called "secondary exposure cases." These cases are filed on behalf of a new slate of plaintiffs, many a generation removed from those that comprised the height ofasbestos litigation in the late 1990s when hundreds of thousands of cases were filed each year.

Likewise, the defendants include new businesses, most at least a step removed from the manufacturers, shipyards and refineries already forced into bankruptcy under the weight of billions paid in legal settlements.

With many of the first wave of plaintiffs deceased, and the businesses they sued bankrupt, it is no surprise the vast industry of asbestos lawyers would now be uncovering new cases along previously un-trod trails.

One such trail emerging as a potential highway of asbestos cases is take home liability cases. Commonly, these plaintiffs include everyone from children and spouses of those who worked around asbestos, babysitters who entered the employee's home, or independent contractors who worked with products containing asbestos.

Texas plaintiff attorneyShepard Hoffman described one form of take home liability extending "to those who regularly and repeatedly came in to contact with employees' work clothing consistently over a period of time."

New York attorney JohnCanoni said defendants in these cases have taken notice, raising in court their serious concern over the "specter of limitless liability."

New cases, new plaintiffs

The legal war over how courts will interpret the limits and legal responsibility in take home liability cases is now pitched in state-by-state battles. Some states, likeWashington,Tennessee,New Jersey andLouisiana have ruled that companies have a duty to protect and warn those who may become exposed to asbestos beyond their own employees, according toChicago defense attorney Jonathon Lively.

Others, notably,New York,Georgia,Kentucky,Texas,Michigan andDelaware have ruled against such duty. Many states, includingIllinois - and in whichMadisonCounty continues to be one of the larger asbestos dockets in the country -- are still hearing the cases that will determine the eventual legal precedence.

The cases that are setting the stage offer a glimpse into the next generation of clients.

"The housewife is the number one occupation listed for those now contractingmesothelioma,"West Virginia plaintiff attorney AnneKearse said.

ATennessee case involveda woman who died at the age of 24 after being exposed toasbestos from her father's work clothes. The woman was born premature and spent three months in the hospital where her father would come and hold her every day on his way home from work,Lively said.

Another case involves a plaintiff who was exposed to asbestos as a child from wrestling around with his father after work.

Canoni cited one of the most recent cases, a ruling from the Delaware Supreme Court earlier this month. Lillian Riedel sued ICI Americas, Inc., her husband's employer for nearly 30 years, forfailing to warn her of the dangers of asbestos exposure from her husband's clothing.

"Does the employer owe a duty of care to the injured party who they may or may not have ever known, nor ever employed?"Canoni said.

According to court documents, the court ruled against Riedel, grantingICI's request for summary judgment "on the basis that ICI and Mrs. Riedel did not share a legally significant relationship that would create a duty ICI owed to her."

But that legal victory of the defense inDelaware is offset by plaintiff victories along similar lines in other states, notablyWashington.

Lawyers G. William Shaw and Michael K. Ryan wrote, "In a pair of closely watched asbestos cases, theWashington Court of Appeals on January 29, 2007 greatly expanded the duty to warn in asbestos cases."

The twin rulings in favor of plaintiffs found that a product manufacturer whose products do not include any asbestos is still responsible for exposure if the normal use of the product would cause them to become exposed from another source.

The court ruling "may have a direct impact on defendant manufacturers whose products may have required the use of asbestos-containing products to function properly," they wrote, which in turn, greatly expands the company's duty to warn about the exposure to asbestos. The ruling also greatly increases the pool of defendants that can be named inWashington asbestos cases.

Potential liability in states where duty to warn is expanded could soon extend to babysitters, school teachers and neighbors who could have been exposed by someone who worked around asbestos, according to asbestos conference presenters. The number of businesses who could be sued in asbestos cases is also greatly expanded, even to the point of including "mom and pop stores," one presenter at the conference said.

The cases with extended duty to warn are cropping up in asbestos dockets across the country. A brief review of cases filed recently inMadisonCounty, shows the subtle shift to the next generation of plaintiffs.

For example, among the 13 cases filed inMadisonCounty in a single week in February, few are direct lawsuits on behalf of a sick worker suing a former employer. One such example involves a lawsuit filed by Christine Warner ofTennessee on behalf of hermother who developedmesothelioma during her work as aseamstress atHouse of Fashions inMemphis for more than 30 years.

But most are less specific as to when and where the person was exposed to asbestos, likely built on duty to warn case law.

Pat Montgomery ofKentucky claims he developedmesothelioma after helping his father on the family farm for six years during the 1950s. AnIllinois woman claimed in her suit filed inMadisonCounty that she developedmesothelioma after being exposed through her husband.

Defending the case

The most important steps in defending against take home liability often occur early on in how the case is framed by the courts, according to Lively. The duty to warn is often determined by whether the court sees the case as one of misfeasance, poor action to warn, or nonfeasance, no action to warn.

"How a case gets framed in front of the court is going to greatly determine how it is going to end up," Lively said during the asbestos conference.

TheDelaware ruling involving Lillian Riedel, Lively said, was an example of the court assessing the failure to warn as nonfeasance, essentially ruling they had no duty to warn her of the potentialexposure from her husband's work clothes.

Other cases where courts have ruled the company had a duty to warn and acted poorly to do so have led to plaintiff victories, the case of the 24-year-old woman fromTennessee for example,Lively said.

The outcomes of these cases differ greatly from state to state.

Hoffman said that despite the changing nature of the cases, juries still focus on the plaintiff and the harm done to them.

"Juries want to find a way to help out a family," he said, arguing that plaintiff attorneys must simply show the "contributing factors to a person contractingmesothelioma," and "the basis to hold the initiating company responsible."

Companies knew the dangers of asbestos, even on clothing leaving the plant for decades, Hoffman said, citing examples of safety measures that were commonplace.

"A study in 1913 discusses worker safety, of the need for lockers and showers and a change of clothes for workers before going home," Hoffman said.

While defense attorneys often point to 1972, when OSHA issued protocols to be followed regarding asbestos exposure,Kearse said that premise can be challenged in court.

"There's a lot of information out before OSHA,"Kearse said, starting with a report in 1937 that talks about safety policies related to asbestos.

"It was known and knowable how dangerous this was to work with," she said. "West Virginia had regulations in place since 1951, but it was rarely followed, if at all."

Women and Mesothelioma – Asbestos Second Hand Exposure –Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Ohio nurse contracts Mesothelioma through second-hand exposure, suit claims 

9/19/2008 6:27 AM By KellyHolleran

 

AnOhiowoman recentlydiagnosed with Mesothelioma filed an asbestos suit against 13 defendant corporations claiming the disease was wrongfully caused.

Kathy Castle claimsshe was diagnosed with the disease May 19, according to a lawsuit filed Sept. 15 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Castle says she worked from 1970 until 2008 as a nurse's aide, home nurse, secretary, clerical worker and clerk at various locations, according to the lawsuit.

She claims she contractedMesothelioma through second-hand exposure to asbestos fibers her family members would carry home on their clothes.

Kim Fleming, one family member, worked from 1977 until 1981 as a construction worker and mason assistant at various locations, according to the complaint.

Another family member, Donald Young, worked from 1972 until 1977 as plastic manufacturing
plant worker at various locations, the suit states. 

Castle states her exposure was foreseeable and should have been anticipated by the defendants, according to the lawsuit.

She claims her disease was caused after she was exposed to and inhaled, ingested or otherwise absorbed asbestos fibers. 

Castle alleges the asbestos-related disease has disabled and disfigured her and has and will continue to compel her to expend and become liable for large sums of money for hospital, medical, and other health and services necessary for the treatment of the disease. Castle also has and will continue to experience great physical pain and mental anguish as a result of the disease, he claims in the lawsuit.

Mesothelioma hindered and prevented Castle from pursuing his normal course of employment, according to the suit. 

As a result, she lost large sums of money, she claims.

In the two-count lawsuit, Castle seeks sums in excess of $50,000 and compensatory damages in excess of $50,000.

She also seeks punitive damages in an amount sufficient to punish the defendants for their misconduct and to deter similarly situated parties from committing like acts of misconduct in the future.

She is represented by Robert Phillips and Perry J. Browder ofSimmonscooper LLC inEast Alton.

Women with Mesothelioma – $20 Million Mesothelioma Verdict

 

Asbestos Victim wins Twenty Million over Secondary Exposure

Posted on November 16th, 2009

by Deon Scott in All News

An asbestos victim who has contracted the asbestos cancer mesothelioma has won a massive twenty million dollars after contracting the disease through exposure to asbestos on a secondary basis. Thewoman, and nursing professor, is thought to have been exposed to asbestos through washing clothing.

It is claimed that she used towash her grandfather’s clothes back in the 1960s, and this is where the secondary exposure is thought to have occurred. She went on to develop the asbestos related cancer, which can take decades to develop from the time of exposure.

Her grandfather worked as an insulator, and because asbestos was widely used in insulation in the 1960s, as well as in many other industries and applications, he would get asbestos dust and fibers on his clothing, which his granddaughter then washed.

The professor, having filed a lawsuit as a result of contracting the disease, has now been awarded twenty million dollars as a result of her exposure according to recent reports.

Women and Mesothelioma – $2.6 Million Mesothelioma Verdict

 McLeanCounty jury awards $2.6 million in 2006 asbestos death case

Pantagraph staff | Posted: Thursday, March 5, 2009 12:00 am

 

BLOOMINGTON - AMcLeanCounty jury awarded $2.6 million Wednesday to family members of awoman who died as a result of an asbestos-related ailment.

Jean Holmesdied in April 2006 of mesothelioma. Roger and John Holmes, sons of the 93-year-old women, were represented in the three-week trial byBloomington lawyers James Wylder and Lisa Corwin with Wylder Corwin Kelly LLP.

 

According to court records, Jean Holmes was exposed to asbestos when she laundered clothing belonging to her husband, Donald Holmes, who worked atBloomington's Union Asbestos and Rubber Company, later known as UNARCO Industries, in 1962 and 1963.

 

Lawyers for the Holmes' family argued that she was never warned of the dangers of asbestos. The jury deliberated about 2 1/2 hours.

 

Wylder and Corwin argued that defendants Pneumo Abex LLC and Honeywell International Inc., through their corporate predecessors, Abex and Bendix, conspired with other companies, including UNARCO, Johns-Manville, Raybestos-Manhattan, Owens-Illinois, Owens Corning and Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, to suppress information about the hazards of asbestos.

Employees and customers were not cautioned about the dangers of the substance, the lawyers said.

Mesothelioma and Women – Asbestos Company -$20 Million Mesothelioma Verdict

 

$20M Settlement Reached in Construction Lawsuit

Baron & Budd P.C. announced this week that a $20 million settlement was reached in the suit against Georgia Pacific Corp.

The suit was filed on behalf of awoman who was employed with a construction company anddeveloped mesothelioma as a result of beingexposed to asbestos while at work.

Asbestos Exposure

Joan Mahoney, 69, worked part-time for a construction company where she was exposed to products containing asbestos that were manufactured by Georgia Pacific.

Evidence at the trial reportedly showed that Georgia Pacific knew when they entered the asbestos business that asbestos was very harmful and could cause the fatal disease.

The suit claimed that the company knew that its product posed a risk to workers, but continued to make asbestos containing compounds.

Settlement Reached

$20 million was given to Joan and her husband, Daniel, for her injuries and the pain and suffering that the couple has endured throughout the course of her newly developed illness.

“To our knowledge, this is one of the largest asbestos verdicts of its kind,” explains the attorney for the couple. “The results of this trial send a clear message that companies will be held accountable for endangering innocent people.”

Women and Mesothelioma – Asbestos Related Deaths

Camco Is 6th In Asbestos Deaths

Study predicts number of cases will increase

Mar 4, 2004 |Cherry Hill Courier Post

 

A new study ranksCamdenCounty as having the sixth-mostasbestos-related deaths in the nation.

Only counties with major citiesLos Angeles,Chicago,Philadelphia,Seattle andHouston had more deaths, according to the analysis of government health statistics by the Environmental Working Group.

In effect, the study suggests many of the region's elderly residents, the shipyard, refinery and factory workers of the past are paying with their health for the region's industrial might.

Jack Higgins was a longtimeCamden city resident and worked in maintenance departments at twoCamden shipyards and RCA. He was 80 when he died in 1997.

"You had to sit and watch the body deteriorate while the mind was sharp as a tack. It was heartbreaking," said his son, Timothy Higgins, aCollingswood attorney. He added his father had to use bottled oxygen the last years of his life.

"He would describe it as if he were drowning, like he was under water and couldn't breathe," Higgins said.

Camden County, which had an estimated 458 to 532 deaths between 1979 and 2001, even ranked just ahead of Somerset County, once home to the largest asbestos manufacturing plant in North America, owned by the Johns-Manville Corp.

The analysis, released today by the Washington, D.C.-based group, predicts the number of deaths will continue to rise as latency periods for some of the most serious forms of asbestos-related diseases end.

The analysis of government statistics lists 10 otherNew Jersey counties among the top 100 with the most asbestos-related deaths.GloucesterCounty ranked 50th andBurlingtonCounty is 59th.

Gregg Shivers is aCherry Hill lawyer whose firm has represented some 2,000 asbestos-related injury cases over the past 15 years.

He was surprised byCamdenCounty's high ranking, but said large numbers of county residents once worked in industries that used or made asbestos.

Camden's now-defunct New York Shipyard, for example, used asbestos in ship insulation, and Owens-Corning once manufactured asbestos insulation inBerlin, he said.

Anthony Olivo, 83, is a longtime Deptford resident. He worked around asbestos for 40 years as a pipe welder.

He says he has been coping well with the asbestosis, scarring of the lungs, that he contracted from decades of exposure. But he feels deeply responsible for thedeath of hiswife, Eleanor, of mesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the lung linked directly to asbestos.

She diedat the age of 82, less than two years after her diagnosis. She was exposed to the fibers from washing her husband's work clothes.

"Had I known, I would have thrown the clothes away and put a new set of clothes on," he said, crying in the living room of their small Cape Cod cottage where his wife spent her last days.

"I don't know why the good Lord didn't give it back to me. She didn't deserve what she got," he said.

The study comes at a time when Congress is debating financial bailout plans for asbestos manufacturers and their insurers.

Asbestos use and exposure peaked in the mid-1970s, the study said.

At that time, more than 3,000 consumer and industrial products contained asbestos, asbestos factories were polluting neighborhoods, workers were exposed on the job and bringing asbestos fibers home to their families. Asbestos was also widely used in many buildings, including factories and schools.

But asbestos-related diseases have a 20- to 50-year latency period, meaning a substantial portion of those exposed in the 1960s and 1970s are just now getting sick or showing up in government statistics, the study concludes.

Shivers expects an increase in the numbers of lung cancer and mesothelioma cases his firm will handle over the next decade because of the long latency periods for these diseases.

During the study period, at least 43,000 Americans died from mesothelioma and asbestosis. But the Environmental Working Group maintains the number could be much higher.

"The actual number of deaths from these two diseases could easily be twice as high due to chronic misdiagnoses of both diseases and the absence of federal tracking for mesothelioma for nearly all of the time period analyzed," the study reported.

The study adds that lung cancer deaths from asbestos exposure are not reported at all and asbestosis, a non-cancer disease, is still "dramatically underreported, even in worker populations where asbestos exposure is well established."

The federal government banned many uses of asbestos in the early 1980s, including use in ranges and ovens, refrigerators, dishwashers, deep fryers, electric blankets and popcorn poppers.

At the same time, asbestos remains widely used in brake shoes and roofing products, and can still be found in a number of other products, including cement wallboard, heating duct insulation, boiler insulation, vinyl floor tile and sheet flooring and pipe insulation, the study asserts. It also notes that these products are not required to be labeled as containing asbestos. The group is looking for a complete ban.
