$18 Million Verdict in Mesothelioma Case in Kentucky

James Baccus died from Mesothelioma. He contracted malignant mesothelioma after working around asbestos while he served in the U.S. Navy in Philadelphia. However it is believed that the majority of his injuries are said to have occurred while he was working for American Synthetic Rubber in Kentucky.

His family lives in Kentucky, and they filed a case against The Crane Company. The plaintiffs wanted the Kentucky laws to apply because it uses an apportioned liability standard. The jury applying Kentucky law found Yarway and Crane “grossly negligent for failure to warn of the dangers of asbestos in reckless disregard of the safety of others.”

The jurors came back with a damages verdict on February 14. The jury awarded a penalty of $11.9 million in punitive damages and $6.3 million in actual damages.
