A man and his wife have been awarded $3 million for an asbestos injury suit.
The suit was filed against Union Carbide and other defendants for the development of a rare form of cancer, mesothelioma. The man worked at the Union Carbide plant in Brownsville, Texas in the 1970s where he and his wife claimed he was exposed to asbestos. Exposure to asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma and the delayed latency period usually means that the cancer is very advanced when it is found. The lawsuit alleged that the workers at the plant were not properly protected from the asbestos and were not informed the potential health hazard.
