Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Woman's $20M Mesothelioma Verdict Upheld

A California appellate court upheld a $20 million verdict in the case of a woman who developed mesothelioma cancer as a result of exposure to a joint compound produced by Georgia Pacific. Mesothelioma is a virulent form of cancer linked to asbestos exposure.

According to the case, Georgia Pacific was aware that asbestos was dangerous, but continued to used it in the construction of the joint compound. The woman came into contact with the product during the thirty years she spend remodeling homes with her husband. Unfortunately, soon after she was diagnosed with the disease, her husband had a stroke. The woman’s chemotherapy treatment made caring for her husband difficult.
