Florida – Asbestos Trades – $14 Million Mesothelioma Award

Mesothelioma Lawsuit - $14M Awarded To Construction Worker

Byjayita, Gaea News Network

May 28th, 2010

Lungs

FLORIDA (GaeaTimes.com) — AMesothelioma lawsuit filed by WilliamAubin against Union Carbide earned him $14 million.Aubin, aSarasota construction worker was awarded by aFlorida jury.

Aubin had filed complaint against the chemical manufacturer and several other defendants such as Georgia-Pacific for their failure to warn construction companies against their compound, made of asbestos.

Aubin started fighting against these companies after he was allegedlydiagnosed withPeritoneal Mesothelioma in the 1970s. Before that he used to work for his parents’ construction company, Key Biscayne.

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer. The disease is caused by exposure to asbestos and inhaling asbestos fibers. The rare form of cancer is found in the chest and lung. But unlike lung cancer development ofmesothelioma is not related to smoking.

Peritonealmesothelioma is a fatal and rare form of the disease that affects the abdominal cavity. Only 30% of Mesothelioma cancer cases are diagnosed asPeritonealmesothelioma.

Asbestos which is the root cause of the disease is mainly used in several manufacturing and construction companies. Although the most use of asbestos were banned in mid 1980s, the number ofmesothelioma deaths toll is rising each year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports.

Asbestosmesothelioma lawsuits are the longest running mass movements by the people ofU.S. Over 600,000 people have filed lawsuits against 6,000 defendants after being diagnosed withmesothelioma, asbestosis or other asbestos-related diseases.

The award forAubin was announced last week, when aMiami jury had determined that Union Carbide was chiefly responsible forAubin’s cancer. However, they didn’t refute the possibility of other defendants having shared the similar responsibility.

llmorales@MiamiHerald.com

AMiami-Dadejury has awarded aSarasota man more than$14 million after deciding that the asbestos he inhaled in the 1970s caused his deadly abdominal cancer.

Jurors found that chemical giant Union Carbide was negligent for selling asbestos fibers to other companies, which had used the fibers to make joint compounds used by construction companies -- such as the one William Aubin's family owned.

According to Aubin, his parents, who founded Aubin Construction onKey Biscayne in the 1960s, used the asbestos-laden compounds. Aubin, now 59 and a retired firefighter, worked in his parents' company after they moved it toSarasota.

That's how his client was exposed to asbestos and eventuallydeveloped peritoneal mesothelioma, said Juan Bauta, who argued the case for the Ferraro Law Firm.

``The products weren't labeled as containing asbestos,'' Bauta said.

Jurors also found that four of the compound manufacturers, including Georgia-Pacific, share some of the responsibility for causing Aubin's illness.

Peritoneal mesothelioma is a rare -- and usually fatal -- cancer that attacks the lining of the abdominal cavity and organs. Aubin's lawyers argued that he is ``permanently impaired and will ultimately and unfortunately die from mesothelioma.''

In April 2008,Miami-Dadejurors awarded more than $24 million to a Weston doctor who contracted the same illness. It was the largest compensatory jury verdict involving a single defendant in aFlorida asbestos case.

Bauta said he expects Union Carbide to appeal the verdict.

Michael Terry, a Texas-based attorney who represented the company, could not be reached for comment.

Florida – Asbestos Trades – $1 Million Mesothelioma Jury Award

 

Florida jury awards nearly $1 million for Mesothelioma death

May 1st, 2009 by Wendi Lewis

 

This week aBayCounty,Florida,jury awarded $995,600 to Betty McBride of Lynn Haven, whose husband, Woodrow McBride, died of Mesothelioma in 2006 at the age of 67. Mr. McBride filed a wrongful death lawsuit on Aug. 10, 2006, but passed away on Sept. 20, 2006, before seeing the casego to trial. He wasdiagnosed withmesothelioma one year prior to his death.

 

According to a report in thePanama City News Herald, defendants in the case were Foster Wheeler, General Electric and several other companies that had products in two Panhandle area power plants, where Mr. McBride was employed between 1968 and 1996.

 

The jury determined that Gulf Power was 60 percent liable and Foster Wheeler 25 percent liable, with each of the other companies named in the suit 1 percent liable. The judgment includes $245,600 for Mr. McBride’s medical bills, $225,000 for Betty and Woodrow McBride’s past pain and suffering, and $525,000 for Mrs. McBride’s future pain and suffering.

 

According to the News Herald, Gulf Power spokesman Jeff Rogers says his company was never included in the lawsuit and the judgment is not binding. If upheld, Gulf Power’s portion of the judgment would total $597,360, according to the verdict.

 

Mesothelioma is a deadly cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. It affects the lining of the lungs and, less commonly, the stomach and/or heart.

Florida – Asbestos Trades – $2.59 Million Mesothelioma Jury Award

 

Jury awards $2.59m to widow

BRIDGEPORT -- Nearly$2.6 million has been awarded nearly to the wife of a former Navy firefighter fromFlorida who died fromasbestos-related cancer in 2008 by a Superior Court jury.

After a two-month trial before Judge David Tobin, the six-person jury deliberated for less than a day and a half before ordering Allis-Chalmers Corp. to pay $2,595,000 to Gail Fortier ofPort Orange,Fla. Last Thursday the award was announced.

Fortier's husband, David, died inFlorida three months shy of his 60th birthday last June 20. He suffered from mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer caused by asbestos inhalation.

The widow's lawsuit was the first asbestos-related case to go to verdict inConnecticut in 20 years, said the plaintiff's lawyer, Christopher Meisenkothen, who works for the New Haven-based law firm Early, Ludwick, Sweeney and Strauss.

"We are pleased with the result and Mrs. Fortier is certainly pleased," Meisenkothen said.

The lawyer representing Allis-Chalmers, Jeffrey Ment, said however: "We are taking an appeal and we believe the judge made decisions ripe for appellate review."

David Fortier, who was a formerConnecticut resident, served in the U.S. Navy from 1969 to 1972, a majority of that time as a fireman on the USS Forrestal aircraft carrier, according to Meisenkothen. His service began two years after a devastating fire broke out aboard the ship, killing 134 sailors and injuring 161 others.

While on the ship, Fortier worked on pumps and other equipment manufactured by Allis-Chalmers, which, he said, were heavily insulated with asbestos.

Fortier wasdiagnosed with mesothelioma in October 2006, the lawyer said, and in December 2006 a lawsuit was filed.

Allis-Chalmers was once one of the world's largest manufacturer's of farm and other heavy equipment. Now theTexas headquartered company concentrates on oil field services.

Florida – Asbestos and Mesothelioma Deaths

 

State Is 16th In Asbestos Deaths

Environmental group says toll is 716 since '79

Mar 8, 2004 |Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

 

Wisconsin ranks 16th in theUnited States in deaths from asbestos-related diseases, according to a new study from an environmental group.

 

The Environmental Working Group study says at least 716Wisconsin residents have died from asbestos exposure since 1979. More than 100 of the deaths have been inMilwaukeeCounty.

 

Asbestos is a fibrous material that was used as insulation and fireproofing. Its fibers, when inhaled, can cause various breathing ailments including lung cancer. One of the more deadly cancers,mesothelioma, usually doesn't show up until many years after the tiny fibers become embedded in lung tissue like a barbed hook.

 

California andFlorida topped a list of states withasbestos-related deaths, according to theWashington,D.C., environmental group's study.

 

Asbestos currently kills about 10,000 Americans a year, according to the study. That rate is increasing as more Americans exposed during the peak years of asbestos use, the 1960s and 1970s, reach old age.

 

Currently, more than 400,000 asbestos-related claims are pending beforeU.S. and state courts.

 

While asbestos victims want compensation, Congress has been urged to protect companies from the lawsuits. Business groups have said the majority of claims have been from people who are not sick and may not be sick for years.

Plaintiff(s): David H. Fortier, deceased and Gail M. Fortier

 

Defendant: Allis-Chalmers Corporation

 

Verdict Date: March 10, 2009

 

Facts: David Fortier, a 59-year oldFlorida resident, suffered from mesothelioma caused by asbestos exposure. Fortier was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2006 and died from this fatal disease on June 20, 2008. Fortier was a fireman assisting machinist mates in the machinery spaces on the USS Forrestal from 1969-1972. He regularly worked on and around Allis-Chalmers pumps that contained asbestos gaskets and packing. Many of the pumps were also covered in asbestos insulation.

 

JURY AWARDS $2.6 MILLION AGAINST ALLIS CHALMERS CORPORATION

Following less than five hours of deliberations, the jury returned a $2.6 million dollar verdict in favor of the Fortier family. The jury assessed $1,775,000.00 in non-economic damages and $820,000.00 in economic damages. The jury found that the Allis-Chalmers Corporations pumps were a substantial factor in causing Dave Fortier’s death. The pumps were found to be defectively designed and the jury concluded that the company negligently failed to warn Dave Fortier and others of the inherent dangers of working with their asbestos-laden pumps.

 

“We are so happy for Gail Fortier and her family. David Fortier did exactly what he was supposed to do – he worked hard to provide for his family and served his country honorably. He had no idea that Allis-Chalmers products could hurt him. Allis-Chalmers had every to know that using their product could hurt people, people like Dave Fortier and continued to sell their pumps with no warnings. Only the jury force Allis-Chalmers to accept responsibility. On Tuesday, they unanimously decided that this company was liable for what they did to David and his family,” said Jessica Dean, lead counsel for the Fortier family.
