In the 1960s, Charles H Cundiff was exposed to a great deal of asbestos while working on a naval ship. Cundiff has since been diagnosed with mesothelioma caused by that asbestos. In a recent law suit against two companies, Cundiff was awarded $12.1 million because the firms were at fault for manufacturing and delivering a defective product.
Cundiff was exposed to Insulag, an asbestos containing insulated cement. It was made by John Crane Inc and was delivered to Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in California by Lone Star Industries. Cundiff was exposed to the substance over a nine month period of his 1962 to 1966 naval tour while he was working on the USS Kitty Hawk.
