Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?





New York man rewarded $32 million in asbestos lawsuit

A man was diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos during his time spent as a U.S. Navy boiler tender between 1960 and 1977. Pleural mesothelioma affects the lining of the lungs and chest cavity.

The man filed a complaint against multiple companies who had supplied parts containing asbestos to the ships he was working on. During his seventeen years with the Navy, the man worked in the boiler room or fire room on seven different ships. The asbestos he was exposed to was found in the lagging pads, baskets and packing from the valves that he was repairing.

The New York County Supreme Court handled the case. As a result of the lawsuit, the man was awarded $32 million in damages for his pain and suffering.
