The estate of Richard Kelley has filed a mesothelioma lawsuit against 13 corporations after suffering asbestos exposure that eventually lead to the development of pleural mesothelioma. According to the lawsuit, Kelley worked as a personnel and plant manager from 1958 to 1991. He was not diagnosed until moments before his death on September 15, 2005. Mesothelioma can be very difficult to diagnose because symptoms often do not appear until the cancer has fully developed. Kelley’s estate is claiming that the 13 corporations were negligent for their use of asbestos.
The estate of another worker, Wilfred Korando, has also filed a mesothelioma lawsuit. Korando was employed from 1954 to 2004 as a mechanic, washer and dryer maintenance man, and commercial window installer. Diagnosed with maligant mesothelioma, Korando passed away on January 21, 2007.
Defendants in his case include some big name brands, such as Chrysler, Ford Motor Company, Boeing, General Electric, Goodyear, Maytag, MetLife, Rolls-Royce, and Whirlpool, among others. His estate claims that the defedants caused Korando’s mesothelioma due to the use of asbestos in their products.
