Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Merlin Olsen’s family settles asbestos lawsuit

The family of actor and football star, Merlin Olsen, has now settled an asbestos lawsuit that was filed after their family member died of mesothelioma lung cancer that he was diagnosed with later in life.

Olsen was once a member of the Los Angeles Ram’s “Fearsome Foursome”  while he was a defensive tackle in the 1960s. He later appeared on the television show “Little House on the Prairie”  as well as commercials for the National Football League.

Olsen died in March 2010 after battling the rare cancer that is primarily caused by exposure to asbestos particles. The lawsuit was filed against 10 companies that Olsen worked at when he was younger and they either manufactured asbestos products or used them.
