Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Gretna widow sue companies over husband’s asbestos-related death

A woman who lost her husband last year from mesothelioma cancer and asbestosis recently filed lawsuits against the companies responsible for his exposure to asbestos, the Louisiana Record stated on August 8.

In the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Shirley Holmes against more than a dozen companies, she claimed that her husband Kermit, who used to work at Avondale shipyard in the 70’s, died last September due to asbestos exposure in his workplace. Kermit’s workplace reportedly lacked safety equipment to prevent workers from inhaling asbestos. Holmes is also accusing the companies of negligence in disseminating information on the dangers of asbestos exposure to workers.

If inhaled over a certain period of time, asbestos can cause fatal diseases that affect the respiratory system. Companies can be held liable if they neglect to provide safety precautions to their workers and other people.
