Couple names 37 companies as defendants in asbestos lawsuit

A couple from Jefferson, Kentucky has filed an asbestos lawsuit and named 37 defendants that they claim are responsible for the man’s development of lung cancer.

The couple claims that the defendants are responsible for the diagnosis because they exposed the man to asbestos. The man worked for the U.S. Navy from 1955 to 1959. He also worked for multiple coal strip mines in Kentucky and Charleston.

According to the lawsuit, the defendants did not provide the appropriate protective wear or equipment that needs to be used when dealing with asbestos. Asbestos is a toxic material when it is disturbed because it can lodge insuide a person’s lungs and cause certain types of cancer.

Survivor at Pearl Harbor dies of mesothelioma

A man from Billings, Montana who fought in Pearl Harbor when he was 19-years-old has now died of mesothelioma.

In December 1941, the teen was the one who sent the message that alerted the rest of the world that Pearl Harbor was under attack. He remembered the morning vividly. He was told by an officer to call in the message and that this was not a drill.

Now, the man had died of mesothelioma, which is a lung cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, heart and abdomen and is primarily caused from exposure to asbestos. Many navy veterans were exposed to asbestos when they were younger because it was used commonly then.
