Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

New Orleans wife files asbestos lawsuit

New Orleans-based Carol Phillips filed a case against her husband’s former employers in St. John the Baptist District Court for his asbestos-related death. The case was then transferred to a federal court in New Orleans on April 2.

The lawsuit alleges that the victim was exposed to asbestos on a variety of occasions, which led him to develop mesothelioma, eventually leading to his death.

ABB Combustion Engineering Inc., Centerpoint Energy, Inc., Associated Electric Cooperative, Inc., Nebraska Public Power District, and the City of Grand Island were accused of negligence and premises liability for not being able to provide an adequate working environment, not assessing the kind of work Phillips and his co-workers did and not determining whether this was detrimental to their employees’ health or not, and failing to give warnings, proper ventilation, and safety equipment to ensure that asbestos exposure would not be a threat to the workers.

Sadly, asbestos exposure can lead to the deadly disease mesothelioma. To understand more about this and related topics, feel free to get in touch with a representative today.
