Iowa – Asbestos Trades –Mesothelioma Lawsuit

 

October 21, 2009 12:43 PM Eastern Daylight Time  

 

Belluck & Fox Obtains $1.5 Million Mesothelioma VerdictAnd Punitive Damages Against Fisher Controls International

Instrument repairman RonaldDrabczyk repaired control valves manufactured by Fisher Controls International--a Division of Emerson Electric--that contained asbestos gaskets and packing.

MARSHALLTOWN,Iowa &ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The New York law firm ofBelluck & Fox has obtained a $1.5 million verdict and punitive damages of $750,000 against Fisher Controls International following the death of a worker at Hooker Chemical inBuffalo,New York, whowas exposed to asbestos on the job.

“The jury's verdict confirms that this corporation acted in a negligent and reckless manner in selling its valves without ever warning of the dangers associated with the asbestos-containing products used in these valves”

 

The verdicts in Estate of RonaldDrabczyk, Index No. I 2005/1583, were rendered on October 19 and 20 in Erie County Court inBuffalo,New York.Judge John Lane presided.

Fisher Controls, based inMarshalltown,Iowa, is a subsidiary of Emerson Electric Co., based inSt. Louis,MO. Emerson is a publicly-traded company on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol EMR.

Belluck & Fox represented the family of RonaldDrabczyk, a factory worker at a chemical plant inNiagara Falls,NY.Drabczyk died frommesothelioma, a form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.Drabczyk repaired valves manufactured by Fisher Controls which contained asbestos gaskets and packing. The valves were sold by Fisher to the Hooker plant whereDrabczyk overhauled them from 1970-1988. The evidence at trial demonstrated that Fisher was aware of the dangers of asbestos as early as 1946 but failed to place any warning on its products.

In addition to awardingDrabczyk’s estate $1.5 million in damages, the jury found that Fisher Controls acted negligently in failing to warn of the dangers associated with the valves. It found that Fisher Controls was responsible for five percent of the fault associated with his exposure and that the exposure to the valves was a substantial contributing factor in causingDrabczyk'smesothelioma. Further, the jury found that Fisher Controls acted with reckless disregard for the safety ofDrabczyk. UnderNew York law, this finding of reckless disregard renders Fisher Controls responsible for the entire verdict, minus a set-off for prior settlements.

This is the first instance that Fisher Controls has been found liable for using asbestos in its products.

The jury also awarded $750,000 in punitive damages, finding that Fisher Controls acted with wanton and reckless manners towardDrabczyk and others. This is the first punitive damage award in an asbestos case inNew YorkState in more than 20 years.

The case was tried byBelluck & Fox partner Jordan Fox and Michael P. Joyce of the Law Office of Michael P. Joyce inBoston,MA. The law firm ofLipsitz, Green,Scime Cambria, based inBuffalo,New York, served as co-counsel in the case. The trial lasted six weeks.

"The jury's verdict confirms that this corporation acted in a negligent and reckless manner in selling its valves without ever warning of the dangers associated with theasbestos-containing products used in these valves," Fox said. "The punitive damage verdict underscores that corporations have a duty to workers to protect them from hazards known or knowable regarding their products. The jury held Fisher Controls accountable for the fatal consequences of its actions. Although we cannot bring Mr.Drabczyk back, we hope that this verdict will send a message that these actions will not be tolerated."

Asbestos removal to begin at oldThornton school building

By LAURA BIRD, - Monday, March 8, 2010 4:02 PM CST -(Iowa)

THORNTON — Asbestos removal in the formerThornton school building will begin next month in preparation for demolition of the building.

The Sheffield-Chapin/Meservey-Thornton School Board decided to tear the building down after unsuccessfully trying to sell it.

“Due to the location of the building being in the center of the town, the community showed opposition for the change of use of the building,” said Darrin Strike, superintendent. “The local zoning board denied a zoning change request on the property, so the property is still zoned residential.”

The zoning change was requested by Dick Westcott,Mason City, who the board approved in an initial resolution to purchase the building for $1,000 in June 2009.

After the zoning change was denied the school board nullified the sale in September 2009 and decided to pursue demolition instead.

Since then it has been working with Ames Environmental, Slater, to create asbestos/environmental hazard specs and to handle the air quality monitoring for the asbestos removal, Strike said.

The specs recently were sent to asbestos abatement contractors from around the state and bids were received.

A $79,624 bid from REW Services Corp.,Ankeny, to remove the asbestos and light fixtures was approved during a February school board meeting.

The work is set to start in April and continue into June, Strike said.

The board also approved working with Bergland and Cram Architectural firm to create a building decommissioning plan and recruit bids for demolition of the structure and backfill of the property.

Strike said eventually a public hearing will be held on the demolition plans, bids will be let and if everything is approved demolition could start late this fall.

“We are hopeful that the slower economy may have more contractors looking for work, therefore, creating a more competitive bidding process and ultimately cost savings to the district,” he said.

Strike said the demolition of the building would be paid for through Local Option Sales Tax proceeds the district has been saving.

After the building is tore down the School Board will try to sell the property again.

More tests find safe asbestos levels at Sinclair

Thursday, December 24, 2009 9:52 AM

(Source: The Gazette -Cedar Rapids,Iowa) trackingBy Cindy Hadish, The Gazette,Cedar Rapids,Iowa

Dec. 24--CEDAR RAPIDS -- Tests continued to show that smoke from the Sinclair plant fire contained safe levels of asbestos Wednesday as firefighters scaled back their presence at the scene.

The fire, smoldering into its second week, has raised concerns about health hazards that might be present in the former meatpacking plant, an immense complex at1600 Third St. SE.

Air samples collected from three locations within 100 feet of the burning buildings, on Dec. 18 and 21, showed the asbestos fiber concentration was below analytical sensitivity, the city announced Wednesday.

Breathing asbestos fibers can lead to lung cancer.

Family Environmental Inc. ofCedar Rapids was hired by the city to conduct air quality testing recommended by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

The company, based in theCherryBuilding,329 10th Ave. SE, just blocks from the fire, also conducted its own tests on Dec. 16 out of concern for the health of its employees. Those tests also were below the Environmental Protection Agency's clearance level for asbestos of .01 fibers per cubic centimeter.

The samples were analyzed by Reservoirs Environmental Inc. laboratory inDenver,Colo.

Firefighters have been battling the blaze on the city-owned property since Dec. 15, and department spokesman Greg Buelow on Wednesday said crews had made "substantial progress" in suppressing the fire. Firefighters will monitor the site and assist demolition crews as needed. The demolition crews have been tearing down sections of the interconnected buildings involved in the fire.

Linn County Public Health has issued health advisories warning people with asthma and other respiratory conditions to stay indoors and limit their physical activity. The warnings were issued when fine particulate matter in the smoke rose to dangerous levels.

Those levels have since declined, but health officials noted that people with breathing conditions could still be affected by the smoke.
