Louisiana – Asbestos Exposure –$3.2 Million Mesothelioma Verdict

 

$3.2 millionmeso verdict upheld

 

June 6th, 2008 by Wendi Lewis

 

TheLouisiana First Circuit Court of Appeal upheld averdict of $3.2 million for former contractor RayRando, who contractedmesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure. The defendants are Parsons Infrastructure and Technology Group, and Jacobs Constructors.Rando worked for the companies between 1965 and 1985 as a pipe fitter and welder. He was diagnosed withmesothelioma in 2006.

 

Rando was initially granted the $3.2 million verdict about 15 months ago. TheLouisiana Court of Appeal found that becausethe Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Act does not covermesothelioma, leaving former employees injured by the occupational hazard of asbestos with no other recourse for compensation, lawsuits brought against employers formesothelioma cannot be barred on the basis of workers’ compensation.

 

The appeals court also ruled that the claimsRando made against his employers fell within statute exceptions because his employer, which was a turn-key construction company working onsite at chemical plants, had control over the conditions at the construction sites whereRando was exposed to asbestos.

Louisiana – Second Hand Exposure – Mesothelioma Verdict

Secondhand Asbestos

By Chung,Huhnsik,Voses, Marc S
Publication: Risk Management
Date: Tuesday, July 1 2008

Asbestos litigation has come a long way since the case ofBoret v.Fibreboard Paper Products Corp. was filed inBeaumont,Texas in 1966. Recent analysis of asbestos liabilities indicates a downward trend. Towers Perrin reported that insured asbestos losses increased in 2006 by approximately $1.9 billion,

but that increase was comparatively lower than the increases of $10.2 billion in 2003, $7.3 billion in 2004 and $7.0 billion in 2005. Similarly, a November 2007 A.M. Best report indicates that the insurance industry's asbestos losses have peaked.

New developments, however, may stimulate another wave of asbestos litigation seeking to hold employers liable for the secondhand asbestos exposure of employees' household members. secondhand exposure claims are asserted not by people exposed to asbestos dust and fibers while working, but by household members who allege that they contracted an asbestos-related disease from asbestos brought into the home on the clothes or body of family members whose exposure occurred at the workplace. Verdicts in this area, coupled with a lack of unanimity at the state court with respect to employers' liability for secondhand exposure, may provide fertile ground for future lawsuits.

In 2005, aTexas jury awarded $25.7 million to a woman who allegedlydevelopedmesothelioma as a result of laundering her husband's asbestos-laden work clothes. The jury found that the employer acted with gross negligence in failing to protect its workers and their household members against asbestos exposure. They awarded her $13.7 million in compensatory damages and $12 million in punitive damages.

Similarly, a secondhand exposure lawsuit in aNew Jersey state court resulted in a February 2008 jury award of $30.3 million to the family of MarkButtitta whodied frommesothelioma. During trial, attorneys for theButtitta family argued that he was exposed to asbestos while working summers at an auto parts warehouse and in his home from asbestos fibers that clung to his father's and brothers' work clothes. WhileButtitta may have been exposed to asbestos in the workplace, his secondhand household exposure claim also made it to the jury. These cases and others like them are significant because they represent a shift from the typical asbestos plaintiff.

This shift in asbestos plaintiffs is highlighted by the case of Amanda Satterfield whosuccumbed tomesothelioma at the age of 25. From all indications, she was never exposed to asbestos in a workplace. Satterfield's attorneys argued that her father, who hauled asbestos beginning in 1973, inadvertently brought asbestos fibers that clung to his work clothes into their home. The case has made its way to the Tennessee Supreme Court, which heard oral arguments in early this year. Satterfield's case begs the question: how many other people in their 20s or 30s have active or latent asbestos related diseases from secondhand household exposure?

While there were also prior secondhand exposure cases, these recent ones provide fodder for the ongoing legal debate as to whether liability should extend to claims by workers' household members who develop asbestos-related diseases from secondhand exposure. Prior cases demonstrate that courts facing this issue are divided. For example, courts inNew Jersey,Louisiana andTexas have held that the danger to household members from secondhand exposure was foreseeable and employers may be held liable for resulting injuries. On the other hand, courts inNew York andGeorgia have found that employers have no liability for asbestos-related injuries from secondhand exposure. Moreover, the absence of case law on the issue of employer liability for the secondhand exposure of household members in many states provides plaintiffs with an abundance of venues in which to bring suit.

The development of case law and verdicts in secondhand exposure lawsuits will be the determining factor as to whether these cases gain sufficient momentum to be deemed a new phase in the history of asbestos litigation. Studies may indicate that asbestos-related liabilities are down, but do not count them out just yet.

September 30, 2008.

 

Menard, Don Luther

 

Don Luther Menard died at age 73, on Nov. 24, 2008, at his home inBellevue,Washington. He died after a battle with mesothelioma, an aggressive form of lung cancer which is caused by asbestos exposure. Don was born Feb. 6, 1935 inAltus,Oklahoma to Rev. Raphael (Ray) W. Menard and Florence MaeBelle Doughty Menard.

He graduated fromPurcellHigh School in 1953. He was honored in his senior high school yearbook as class ''wittiest'', a distinction he kept throughout his life. In

Slidell man fights deadly asbestos and lawsuit liability limits


Published April 10, 2005 -Louisiana

Terry Cardaro thought he had a cold. Instead, his doctor told him he had four to eight months to live.

Cardaro, aSlidell resident, feared this day ever since he heard a woman at a 1983 pool party describe the deadly effects of asbestos and how she contracted mesothelioma.

Her husband, she said, worked with asbestos insulation every day and would dump his clothes in the laundry for her to clean when he came home.

"When the lady described the dust clouds that appeared from shaking the guy's clothes in the laundry room, it gave me a chill because I remembered seeing those dust clouds everywhere in the submarines when I was a hull technician in the Navy. I thought if she got it from shaking out clothes, I could be in trouble," Cardaro said.

Dr. Robert Jones, a professor of medicine in the pulmonary section at Tulane University School of Medicine, said a significant risk of asbestos exposure inLouisiana comes from the shipbuilding industry, cement manufacturing plants prevalent through the 1980s and the petrochemical refining industry.

"Mesothelioma is virtually always fatal," Jones said. "In more than 30 years I've only met one patient who was legitimately diagnosed and cured."

Mesothelioma is a cancer that attacks the membranes covering internal organs, typically the lungs. It is difficult to detect in its early stages and nearly 95 percent of mesothelioma victims die within one year of being diagnosed. Symptoms may not appear for up to 50 years.

Asbestos is believed responsible for causing the disease in almost 80 percent of mesothelioma cases, according to the National Cancer Institute.

From 1969 to 1977, Cardaro repaired piping systems wrapped in asbestos on nuclear submarines. Early last year, he began experiencing chest pains and having difficulty breathing.

On May 20, 2004, he was told he had mesothelioma.

A new form of chemotherapy helped him live beyond his doctor's initial prognosis but it wasn't cheap.

Cardaro had six chemotherapy treatments at a cost of more than $11,000 per treatment over three months. It's likely he will have to resume the treatments in several months.

Unless a miracle cure is discovered, Cardaro will soon join the 43,073 people killed by asbestos between 1979 and 2001, including 680 Louisianians, ranking the state No. 20 in theUnited States.California had the highest number of deaths with 4,273.

The link between asbestos and mesothelioma spurred a huge number of lawsuits and generated more than $70 billion paid on nearly 730,000 asbestos personal-injury claims through 2004, according to the Rand Institute of Civil Justice, a nonprofit based inSanta Monica,Calif.

Major corporations now involved in asbestos litigation include General Electric, Westinghouse, Dow Chemical, Owens Corning and National Gypsum.

Houston-based Halliburton, an oil field services company with extensive operations inLouisiana, paid out $4.2 billion in asbestos settlements in January to more than 400,000 people, allowing two subsidiaries, Kellogg Brown and Root and DII Industries, to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Many businesses are being forced into bankruptcy by asbestos payments. Thirty-four businesses went bankrupt over the issue in the 20 years between 1980 and 2000. Twenty-two businesses went bankrupt between 2000 and 2002 alone.

An estimated 60,000 people have lost their jobs as a result of bankruptcies caused by asbestos litigation, according to Progress forAmerica, a conservative advocacy group based inWashingtonD.C.

But lost jobs and medical costs pale in comparison to the personal price paid by someone with mesothelioma.

"I'm dying because these companies wanted to make money off asbestos even though they knew it was killing people way back in the '40s," Cardaro said. "I've been told that basically I'll die from asphyxiation, that I won't be able to breathe anymore. The pain will increase over time and keep getting worse. I don't know if I'll ever see any of that money but maybe my wife or kids might."

He is participating in a class-action lawsuit against asbestos manufacturers but no amount of money will help remove the death sentence from around his neck, he said.

Cardaro will win his suit, according to the Environmental Working Group, an investigative organization based in Washington, D.C. EWG says it can prove the dangers of asbestos were well known as early as the 1930s.

In 1934, for example, Aetna Insurance published the Attorney's Textbook of Medicine, which defined asbestosis as "incurable and usually results in total permanent disability followed by death."

In the past 10 years, the Dallas-based law firm Waters and Kraus LLP settled more than $1 billion in asbestos and mesothelioma litigation. Partner Peter Kraus said asbestos manufacturers want to limit the extent of their own liability.

"These companies sold an incredibly dangerous and deadly substance, knew it was dangerous and deadly, but sold it anyway because they were making a lot of money off of it," Kraus said. "And now the Bush administration is trying to cap the rights of victims to pursue compensation in the courts to protect these companies."

Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., has proposed a bill in the Senate, supported by President Bush, to create a defendant- and insurer-backed $140 billion trust fund to pay asbestos liability claims outside of the courts. The proposal has not yet come up for a vote.

Supporters point to aRand study that indicates 65 percent of asbestos liability payments were "baseless" or made to people without significant injuries.

Kraus said many healthy people are making claims against asbestos manufacturers. But that's no reason to strip away the legal rights of people like Cardaro, he said.

"The only reason they want to change the system is to do away with the legal rights of true mesothelioma victims," Kraus said. "They don't want to be responsible for the harm they've caused. And for these victims, it's not about the money. If you asked most people if they would take $1 million in exchange for having their spouse of the last 40 years die a horrible death, not too many people would take the money."

Cardaro, now in his 11th month after being diagnosed with mesothelioma, said he would be happy if he manages to live another year. Jo Ann Cardaro, his wife of 14 years, wants more.

"I remember when the doctor first told me Terry was sick," she said. "I went home and my head felt like it was going to blow off. My teeth were hurting, everything was hurting. I wake up in the middle of the night and just look at him. Every time I think about it I cry."
