Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Steel Worker's Family Awarded $700,000

On July 24, a South Carolina jury returned a verdict in a mesothelioma case, awarding the family of a deceased steel worker $700,000. The man had worked for Bethlehem Steel in their Sparrows Point, Maryland factory in the 1950s. In that time he was exposed to asbestos.

The asbestos was in products manufactured by Garlock Sealing Technology Inc, and caused the man to develop mesothelioma. The cancer led to the man’s death on July 13, 2007. The jury found Garlock negligent in failing to warn about the dangers of their products.
