Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Alabama survivors awarded $3.5M after death of mother

Alabama Judge Lynwood Smith recently decided that Shannon Jean Bobo Cox and Melissa Ann Bobo should be awarded $3.5 million after their mother, Barbara, died of mesothelioma cancer in 2013. Barbara, who regularly cleaned the clothes of her late husband, James, developed pleural mesothelioma in November of 2011.

Reports showed that James clothes contained asbestos dusts which accumulated in the course performing his duties as an employee of the Tennessee Valley Authority nuclear plant. In 1997, James succumbed to lung cancer as a result of asbestos exposure. Court papers claimed that Barbara was also exposed to asbestos, even though she was not working at the nuclear plant.

This case serves to illustrate the incredibly devastating and far-reaching effects of asbestos exposure. Even inhaling residual dust can lead to severe medical complications.
