Seaman – Asbestos Veterans – Asbestos Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Gori and Julian add more asbestos cases to St. Clair County docket
3/25/2010 10:15 AM By KellyHolleran 

Five moreasbestos lawsuits have been added to the growing list of cases in St. Clair County's asbestos docket.

Charles Graham filed theninth St. Clair County Circuit Court asbestos lawsuit of the year while John E. and Charlotte Williams filed the 10th, James and Donna Byrnes filed the 11th, Roger and Sybil Woods filed the 12th and Raleigh and JanetYarberough filed the 13th. None of the plaintiffs besides Graham, who lives inWisconsin, specify in which state they reside.

In their complaint filed March 12, theYarberoughs allege 26 defendant companies caused RaleighYarberough to develop lung cancer after his exposure to asbestos-containing products throughout his career.

RaleighYarberough worked as aseaman in the U.S. Navy from 1956 until 1960, as a service worker at Gross Air Heating and Cooling from 1960 until 1969, as a machine operator at Service Heel Company from 1971 until 1975 and as a carpenter and mill operator in 1976, according to the complaint.

According to Charles Graham's March 12 complaint filed against nine defending companies, he says his recently deceased father, Richard Graham, developed lung cancer after his work as a motor machinist's mate in the U.S. Navy from 1943 until 1946 and as a telegrapher, switcher and dispatcher at Chicago Northwestern from 1946 until 1986.

Richard Graham, who was diagnosed with the disease Nov. 20, 2006, died Jan. 21, 2007, the suit states.

In The Williams' March 12 complaint against 13 defendant companies, John E. Williams claims to have developed lung cancer after his work as a laborer atKlossner Brothers from 1959 until 1960, as a carpenter at D&L Construction from 1960 until 1961, as a carpenter at Bauman Construction from 1962 until 1965, as a carpenter at L.J.McNeary from 1965 until 1969 and as a self-employed insulator from 1970 until 2008.

The Byrnes claim in their March 12 complaint that James Byrnes developed lung cancer after his work in the U.S. Army Reserves from 1960 until 1968 and as a wireman through IBEW Local I from 1964 until 2001. The Byrnes named 32 defendants in their complaint.

In their March 12 complaint against 13 defendants corporations, the Woods claim Roger Woods developed lung cancer after his work as stocker and cashier at Jitney Jungle from 1964 until 1967, as a deck hand at Brent Towing Company in 1968, as a pipefitter at various locations from 1967 until 1972 and as a handyman, installer, rebuilder and manager from 1972 until now.

The defendants should have known of the harmful effects of asbestos, but failed to exercise reasonable care and caution for the plaintiffs' or their deceased relative's safety, the suit states.

As a result of their asbestos-related diseases, the plaintiffs or their deceased relatives became disabled and disfigured, incurred medical costs and suffered great physical pain and mental anguish, the complaints say. In addition, they claim they became prevented from pursuing their normal course of employment and, as a result, lost large sums of money that would have accrued to them.

Charles Graham, Charlotte Williams, Donna Byrnes, Sybil Woods and JanetYarberough claim they have been deprived of their family member's companionship and society because of the diseases.

In their six-count suit, theYarberoughs seek a judgment of more than $100,000, punitive and exemplary damages of more than $100,000, compensatory damages of more than $100,000, punitive damages in an amount to sufficiently punish the defendants for their behavior and other relief the court deems just.

In his six-count complaint, Charles Graham seeks a judgment of more than $200,000, compensatory damages of more than $100,000 and punitive damages in an amount sufficient to punish the defendants for their behavior.

In their six-count complaint, the Williams seek a judgment of more than $100,000, compensatory damages of more than $100,000, punitive and exemplary damages of more than $100,000 and punitive damages in an amount sufficient to punish the defendants for their behavior.

In their 10-count complaint, the Byrnes seek a judgment of more than $100,000, compensatory damages of more than $100,000, economic damages of more than $150,000, punitive and exemplary damages of more than $100,000 and punitive damages in an amount sufficient to deter the defendants from similar conduct in the future.

In their 10-count complaint, the Woods seek a judgment of more than $100,000, compensatory damages of more than $50,000, economic damages of more than $150,000, punitive and exemplary damages of more than $100,000 and other relief the court deems just.

Randy L.Gori and Barry Julian ofGori, Julian and Associates in Edwardsville will be representing all the plaintiffs.

Seaman – Asbestos Veterans – $1.4 Million Mesothelioma Award

U.S. Navy Widow Awarded $1.4M in Long-Term Asbestos-Exposure Case

LOS ANGELES - April 24, 2009 - An LA County jury has awarded $1.4 million to the widow of a career U.S. Navy serviceman whodeveloped mesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure aboard naval vessels. Theseaman served his entire two-decade career - from 1959 through his retirement in 1980 - as a machinist's mate.

The verdict, which awarded the family of Earl Ogle Haupt, III $450,861 in economic damages, and $1.0 million for loss of consortium, was announced on April 21.

Mr. Haupt's job involved maintaining, repairing and overhauling pumps, valves and mechanical systems within naval steam propulsion systems, as well as their myriad asbestos-containing component parts aboard the USS Intrepid, USS Essex, and USS Gurke. The work exposed him 8-10 hours daily over many years to massive volumes of asbestos dust in tight, unventilated quarters.

Via video deposition, Mr. Haupt recalled in sharp detail the types and brands of valves, pumps, gaskets, packing, and insulation he handled, as well as the precise processes he followed to remove, repair, and re-install equipment components aboard ship. He remembered breathing copious amounts of dust without any type of protective breathing apparatus and no knowledge that the dust was deadly, despite having read numerous instruction sheets and product manuals over the course of his career. Had he known of the hazard, he recounted, he certainly would have heeded the warning to protect his health, and ultimately, his life.

The jury found Elliott Turbomachinery Co., Inc.,Crane Co., and John Crane, Inc. liable fordefective product design.

"We're pleased for the family," said WKP attorney and lead trial counsel Brent Zadorozny. "Navy asbestos-exposure cases are always challenging, but this one was especially so in light of the recentTaylor decision."

The decision by the California Court of Apeal in Taylor vs. Crane Co., handed down just last month, releases manufacturers from a duty to warn of the dangers of asbestos-containing components used in their products if those subcomponents are manufactured or supplied by a third party.

WKP partner Gary Paul explained, "Taylor letsmanufacturers off the hook for what they have known about the dangers of asbestos since the 1940s, but were reticent to share for decades with unknowing consumers."

"Even in cases where the manufacturer's product design calls specifically for an asbestos-based component, the appellate court has decided that the maker has no duty to warn the consumer of the subcomponent or its lethal effects, and can not be found negligent for that failure to warn. It's taken the concept of 'consumer beware' to a new, dangerous extreme," Mr. Paul continued.

"In the end, justice prevailed," said Mr. Zadorozny. "Mrs. Haupt is grateful to the jury for sorting through the subtleties of the law and holding these defendants accountable for her husband's devastating illness and cruel death," said Mr. Zadorozny.

Earl O. Haupt, III died in December 2006 at the age of 66, after 20 years and six months of honorable service to the Navy, and less than six months after being diagnosed with malignant pleural mesothelioma. He and his wife were raising two young grandchildren, ages 4 and 8, at the time of his death.
