This November, Jeanie Berggren filed an asbestos lawsuit against her father's former employers and manufacturers of asbestos-filled products after her father was diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is caused by asbestos fibers, which make their way into our bodies through inhalation, ingestion, or can even be absorbed. Without proper protection, these fibers find their way into our bodies, where they cause a variety of health problems, specifically the formation of cancer.
Berggren's lawsuit has been filed to fight for the legal rights of her father, Oliver Larson. According to the lawsuit, Larson was exposed to many different dangerous materials during his career, such as asbestos, toxins, solvent, diesel, silica, and gasoline fume. Larson held many jobs, including research developer, mail carrier, ammunition handler, and security guard from 1939 to 1974. His daughter is seeking compensation for economic damages, compensatory damages, and punitive damages.
