Pittsburgh – Asbestos Exposure – $226,000 Mesothelioma Jury Award

 

Jury awards $226,000

March 15th, 2008 by Wendi Lewis

 

The Indiana Gazette reported March 15 anIndianaCounty,Pennsylvania., jury awarded $226,000 to the family of GeorgeBaroni. A resident of theHomerCity area,Baroni worked for Fisher Scientific plant from 1959-1994. The jury determined he had been exposed to asbestos while on the job. Hedevelopedmesothelioma and died in 2005 at age 73.

 

Baroni’s case, filed on his behalf by his family, was the first of several lawsuits pending by former Fisher Scientific workers or their estates to be decided by a jury. Other cased settled prior to trial.

TheBaroni lawsuit was filed against the companies that provided Fisher with products that contained asbestos, according to the Gazette story. Three of the four companies settled prior to trial, whileTaylored Industries elected to continue to trial.

 

The other companies involved in the suit are F.B. Wright Co., George B. Hamilton, Inc., and one referred to as the Gage Company: Pittsburgh Gage & Supply Co., which now is owned by IU North America Inc.

 

The Gazette reports all the companies have outlets in thePittsburgh area and furnished different asbestos-containing products. Some were used in the equipment in the Fisher plant and others were components of the finished items that Fisher manufactured, such as hospital and laboratory equipment and furniture.

Asbestos Products – Asbestos Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Asbestos Lawsuit Goes to Trial

Products caused cancer, suit claims

Apr 14, 2004 |Indiana Gazette

 

A product-liability lawsuit filed by a dying retiree of the Fisher Scientific Co. almost four years ago has made its way to trial this week in the Indiana County Court.

The suit filed by Joseph Carl Smith of Homer City RD 3 has been consolidated with claims that two other retired Fisher Scientific workers, Stanley Maschak of Shelocta RD 3 and John Lee Harris ofIndiana, who also contracted cancer from exposure to asbestos in Fisher Scientific's plant alongIndian Springs Road inWhiteTownship.

Smith and his wife, Concetta, filed suit in July 2000, about three months after Smith had beendiagnosed with mesothelioma, an incurable cancer of the lining of the lungs. Smith, 69, died in February 2001.

Joan Maschak filed a series of three lawsuits in 2000 and 2001, following her husband's death at age 69 from mesothelioma in November 1999.

Harris, 68, initiated his case in November 2000, less than three months after surgeons removed most of his right lung to prevent the spread of lung cancer. An attorney said Tuesday that Harris is in remission.

About 60 companies were named as defendants in each of the suits, but lawyers representing only two of them are putting up a defense against the claims in the trial this week.

The suits accused the companies of manufacturing or supplyingasbestos-containing products that Smith, Maschak and Harris used in the assembly of medical and laboratory equipment in the Fisher plant. Fisher Scientific was not named as a defendant becausePennsylvania law prohibits workers from suing their employers.

On Monday, at least eight attorneys were at the defense table in Judge Gregory Olson's courtroom, helping to select the jury. When the trial opened Tuesday morning, only three lawyers remained to defend Pittsburgh-area industrial suppliers, Taylored Industries Inc. of Harmarville and Pittsburgh Gage and Supply Co., which now is owned by IU North America Inc.

Many of the claims against the other defendant companies had been dismissed "with prejudice" or "without prejudice" and, in some cases, the court had granted motions for summary judgment against them, according to court records. But attorneys on both sides declined to discuss whether the other companies had reached settlements with the plaintiffs.

In his opening statement Tuesday, an attorney representing Harris and Concetta Smith, told the jury that although Taylored Industries and Pittsburgh Gage simply furnishedasbestos-containing products that were made by other companies, they were just as responsible as the manufacturers to provide sufficient warning of the dangers of asbestos to the Fisher Scientific Co. workers who used the products.

Theattorney who represents Joan Maschak, said the men assembled ovens, furnaces, fume hoods and hot plates using insulating panels shipped to Fisher by Taylored Industries and were sickened by breathing microscopic fibers of asbestos from the panels. Beachler also said the men worked in the vicinity of pipes covered with asbestos-containing insulation furnished by Pittsburgh Gage.

PittsburghPennsylvania - $12 Million Verdict Mesothelioma Death

Family of mill worker who died from asbestos exposure awarded $2 million

ByBobbyKerlik
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Wednesday, February 3, 2010

AnAlleghenyCounty jury awarded the family of aPlum man who died from asbestos exposure $2 million.

The jury returned a $50 million verdict last week in favor of the BarryBaumener estate and against 25 companies named as defendants after a two-week trial. All of the companies except one —Oglebay Norton Co. of Ohio and its division, Ferro Engineering — settled out of court,Baumener's attorney, John Kane, said.

Ferro will have to pay $2 million because the jury ordered each of the 25 defendants to pay 4 percent of the total. The 24 companies who settled out of court are immune to the jury's verdict.

Attorneys for Ferro could not be reached for comment.

Baumener was diagnosed withmesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the lungs, in April and died in October. He was 62, Kane said.

Baumener worked for Carpenter Technology, a steel mill inReading. He sued several companies in May, including Ferro, alleging that the company sold asbestos-containing products to the mill where he worked.

Baumener and his wife, Marsha, moved from theirReading home into his daughter'sPlum home after his diagnosis.

"I think the jury understood the severity of the injury and the devastation on the entire family," Kane said.

Kane declined to say how much the family settled for in the other cases but said it was far less than $50 million.
