$1.4 Million verdict in Mesothelioma for widow of pipefitter
Posted on October 5th, 2009 by Zane Cagle
The widow of former pipefitter who passed away from Mesothelioma was awarded $1.4 million by a Tennessee jury in September. The plaintiff’s suit claimed that the defendant sold defective products to the company where her husband worked, which contributed to his diagnosis of Mesothelioma. The plaintiff’s husband worked as a pipefitter from 1952 to 1986, and during that time, he was exposed to asbestos-contaminated products used by company employees. The jury deliberated for 2 days before returning a unanimous verdict in favor of the plaintiff, which her attorney stated was a victory for all Tennessee workers who were exposed to asbestos in the workplace by manufacturers who knowingly exposed them to the poisonous products.
