Asbestos Mine – Asbestos Trades – $3.4 Million Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Jury Assesses a $3.4 Million Verdict for Johns-Manville Worker With Mesothelioma

Former Johns-Manville worker, Richard Worthley Sr., was exposed to raw asbestos supplied by Advocate Mines Limited. Due to his occupational asbestos exposure, he ultimatelydeveloped and succumbed to mesothelioma. In his defective product and negligence case against Advocate Mines Limited, aSan Francisco jury ruled in favor of Mr. Worthley's family, assessing a $3.4million verdict.

Novato,CA (PRWEB) July 23, 2009 -- After a single day of deliberations on Wednesday, July 22, 2009, aSan Francisco jury ruled in favor of the family of Richard Worthley Sr., a deceased former Johns-Manville Transite plant worker fromBeaumont,California. The jury assessed a combined verdict of almost $3.4million against Advocate Mines Limited due to their contribution in causing Mr. Worthley's mesothelioma and death. The jury determined that AdvocateMinesLimited exposed Mr. Worthley to its defectively designed asbestos product, failed to warn about the dangers of their asbestos product, and that they were negligent. Advocate Mines Limited is anasbestos mine inBaie Verte,Newfoundland.          

Mr. Worthley served in the United States Marine Corps in the San Francisco Bay Area,San Diego,California, andVietnam from 1963 to 1967. In May 1968, he started his career at the Johns-Manville,Waukegan,IL plant as a painter, then a production planner, and eventually as a millwright. When the Johns-Manville plant closed in 1984, he worked as a maintenance mechanic and service technician throughoutSouthern California. In 2004, Mr. Worthley was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a fatal asbestos caused cancer of the pleura, the organ that protects the lungs.

We demonstrated to the jury that it was the total dose of asbestos that Mr. Worthley was exposed to at the Johns-Manville plant, including resuspended asbestos fiber from Advocate Mines Limited, that contributed together to cause his mesothelioma and death. 

 

Advocate Mines Limited supplied bulk asbestos fiber to the Johns-Manville,Waukegan,IL plant from December 1963 to April 1967. During his career at the plant from May 1968 to November 1984, Mr. Worthley was exposed to dust from the raw asbestos fiber used to make Transite asbestos-cement pipe, including asbestos fiber that had been reentrained and resuspended from when Advocate Mines Limited supplied asbestos fiber to the plant. In addition to simply being present on a daily basis in the contaminated plant, one of Mr. Worthley's jobs was to clean and repair the Transite manufacturing equipment. This included the willows, cleaning and repairing the dust collection equipment, the bag houses, ventilators, and cyclones. All these activities exposed Mr. Worthley to asbestos dust, including asbestos that originated from Advocate Mines Limited.

The trial began on June 10, 2009 and was presided over by the Hon. Tomar Mason in Department 606 of the San Francisco Superior Court. At trial, plaintiffs presented evidence showing that when used as intended, hazardous levels of respirable asbestos dust from Advocate Mines Limited raw asbestos fiber was released into the background of the facility. By 1963, it was well established in medicine and science that asbestos caused asbestosis, pleural disease, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. Yet, Advocate Mines Limited supplied its defective asbestos fiber without any warnings or any other reasonable care to avoid injury to others. The jury assigned 5% percent of the liability to Advocate Mines Limited.

"We demonstrated to the jury that it was the total dose of asbestos that Mr. Worthley was exposed to at the Johns-Manville plant, including resuspended asbestos fiber from Advocate Mines Limited, that contributed together to cause his mesothelioma and death." said James P. Nevin, counsel for Richard Worthley. Mr. Nevin of BraytonPurcell LLP, represented the Worthley family at trial.

Defendant Advocate Mines Limited was represented at trial by John Graniez and Suzanne Golden of Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP.

Asbestos Mine Workers –Mesothelioma and Occupational Exposure

Exposure to Asbestos from Rocks Can Cause Malignant Mesothelioma

Oct 17, 2005 | www.newsinferno.com

 

A new study published in the October 2005 American Thoracic Society’s American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine has found that Californianswho live close to naturally occurring asbestos sources are at an increased risk for developing malignant mesothelioma.

Malignant mesothelioma is a cancer of the membrane covering the lung.  The study’s authors, Marc B. Schenker, M.D., from theUniversity ofCalifornia,Davis, and four of his associates, investigated 2,908 malignant mesothelioma cases reported inCalifornia between 1988 to 1997.  Over half of the patients either had no or low occupational exposure to asbestos.  Exposure to asbestos fibers is the only known cause for malignant mesothelioma.

Dr. Schenker said that while studies have confirmed the link betweenmesothelioma and occupational exposure to asbestos, almost all population-based studies have found that many mesothelioma cases have no known occupational exposure to asbestos. 

The research showed that people who lived closer to an asbestos source had a greater risk of developing mesothelioma, and that the chance decreased as the distance from exposure increased.  According to the study, the odds of developing mesothelioma decreased 6.3 percent for every 10 kilometers farther from the asbestos source.

Per the authors,California has more naturally occurring asbestos source rocks than any other state in theU.S..

In an editorial in the same issue, Marcel Goldberg, M.D., Ph.D. and Daniele Luce, Ph.D., of the Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale inSaint Maurice,France, wrote “while exposure in environmental settings is generally much lower than in occupational circumstances, the levels may not be negligible.” 

They add that in studies in which elevated risk of mesothelioma was demonstrated, people typically lived in close vicinity of naturally occurring asbestos sources.  “It is thus likely that lifelong cumulative exposure may have been as high (if not higher) as in some occupational settings.”
