Vietnam Veteran – Asbestos Exposure – $3.4 Million Mesothelioma Award

California jury awards $3.4M in asbestos case

By Tooher, Nora
Publication: LawyersUSA
Date: Friday, July 31 2009

ASan Franciscojury deliberated one day before finding a Canadian company liable for exposing a deceased formerJohns-Manville Transite plant worker to asbestos.

Richard Worthley Sr., aVietnam veteran, worked in theplant inWaukegan,Ill. from May 1968 to 1984, when it closed.

He moved tosouthernCalifornia and worked as amaintenance mechanic and service technician until 2004, when he wasdiagnosed with mesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos exposure.

The defendant in the case,Advocate Mines of Newfoundland,Canada, argued that it had stopped supplying asbestos to the plant 13 months before Worthley began working there, and denied liability for any asbestos exposure.

But Plaintiffs' attorney James Nevin told jurors that Worthley - who held several jobs at the plant as apainter, production planner and millwright - was exposed to dust from rawasbestos fiber on a daily basis.

The fiber he was exposed to was used to makeasbestos-cement pipe, and it included fiber supplied byAdvocate Mines that remained in the plant, Nevin said.

Vietnam Navy Veteran– Asbestos Company – $10 Million Mesothelioma Verdict

After Billions Paid In Settlements, Asbestos Lawsuits Continue

 

Jan 7, 2003 |Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune

 

It's the litigation that won't go away.
Asbestos lawsuits, a fixture of theU.S. court docket for more than 20 years, show no sign of abating.

The cost of injury to the hundreds of thousands of Americans exposed to the material is in the tens of billions of dollars and climbing. The cost already dwarfs the financial losses from the terrorist attacks on theWorldTradeCenter andFlorida's 1992 Hurricane Andrew - combined.

The companies with sufficient assets to stand the legal barrage are becoming fewer and fewer as firms with the greatest exposure seek the protection offederal bankruptcy laws.

New estimates forecast another 20 to 30 years of settlements totaling billions more as second- and third-generation victims develop long-latent asbestos illnesses, includingdeadly mesothelioma.

Larry Fix is an example of how long it takes for asbestos exposure to manifest itself as a disease.

Fix, a 55-year-oldNavy veteran ofVietnam, mixed asbestos with plastics in a coloring process in 1969 for aWinona,Minn.,plastics company. Fix, who now lives inMankato, took the job three days after his discharge from theNavy and worked there for two years while he attended vocational school for electronics training.

Twenty-seven years later, after a career spentrepairing machines for Xerox, Fix's doctor told him he had a tumor in his lung. During surgery to remove the tumor, Fix's doctor discovered it was in the lung lining, the area where mesothelioma appears.

"He asked if I'd been exposed to asbestos. I said, 'Yeah,'" Fix recalled. "He said, 'You have a year, maybe two, to live.'"

That was six years ago. Fix, who is married and has three children, managed to outlive the initial prognosis but hasn't been able to work since 1997 because of thedisability.

"It was a real shock," Fix said of the lung disease. "For the first three or four months, my wife, Diane, and I couldn't look at each other without crying."

Fix said he regularly visits with other mesothelioma victims, people who sometimes die within six to nine months of receiving their diagnosis.

"I thank God every day" to be alive, Fix said.

Fix is one of 600,000 people who have filed claims against 6,000 different defendant companies, according to a comprehensive study of asbestos litigation prepared by the Rand Institute for Civil Justice and released last year. He has received a number of settlements but can't discuss the terms due to confidentiality clauses.

So far,$54 billion has been spent on asbestos claims, with the totalprojected to grow to between $200 billion and $265 billion when all the cases are settled, according to theRand study.

"All accounts agree that, at best, only about half the final number of claimants have come forward," the report concludes. "At worst, only one-fifth of all claimants have filed claims to date."

While few of the cases go to trial, the litigation is complex because of the multiple defendants and multiple plaintiffs and degrees of injury involved. Increasingly, claims are from people who have yet to manifest any condition that affects their daily lives. TheRand study said that nearly two-thirds of the $54 billion paid to date has been for such cases.

"As the litigation evolved, the circle of plaintiffs moved outward," said Bruce Jones, an attorney with theMinneapolis firm of Faegre & Benson who represents business defendants. "As the circle of plaintiffs widened, so did the circle of defendants to anything that contained asbestos, even a small percentage."

A move is expected in Congress to limit asbestos awards, and a case to limitasbestos lawsuits is pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

TheRand study said half of the successful asbestos claims are eaten up by transactional expenses, including lawyer's fees.

But plaintiff's attorneys said that is a necessary cost of doing business in a risky area where a plaintiff may get nothing and that it would be wrong to cap awards and fees.

"These are not frivolous lawsuits. These are not lawsuits against the fast-food industry," said Michael Polk, aHastings,Minn., attorney who specializes in asbestos cases. "These people are sick, they're dying. This is the worst death."
