A Florida jury has awarded a 57-year-old man $14 million in a mesothelioma suit.
The suit claimed that the man was exposed to asbestos while working at his family’s construction company during the 1970s. During this time, asbestos was used in joint compounds in the construction industry and was used in nearly 3,000 construction projects.
The jury found that Union Carbide, a chemical manufacturing company, was negligent for selling the asbestos fibers to companies. The company was founded in 1917 and sold asbestos fibers to companies until 1985.
