Linda O’Donnell was diagnosed with Peritoneal Mesothelioma. This is a cancer of the lining of the abdomen. O’Donnell is a 66-year-old resident of Oregon.
O’Donnell and her husband Reginald filed a case in California Superior court, against against several manufactures and suppliers of dry talcs which were used by O’Donnell. These dry talcs were used as an ingredient for her ceramics business. The cause of the Mesothelioma was traced back to the asbestos in the dry talcs. Ironically, these talcs were mined by various companies in Death Valley, California.
The case was settled on October 10, 2007, before the start of the trial, for a sum of $5.6 million. For more information, contact the Mesothelioma Lawyers at Williams Kherkher at 1.800.220.9341.
