Illinois Man Files Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Illinois resident, William Kirk, was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma in June. Kirk worked as a truck driver, laborer, and mechanic for various employers for 68 years, ranging from 1940 to 2008. He lists 89 defendants, including: Chrysler LLC, DuPont Chemical, CBS Corp., General Electric, and Honeywell.

According to the lawsuit, Kirk claims to have been exposed to asbestos fibers that were emitted from the products that he worked with and around during his 68 year working history. Kirk claims in his lawsuit that the defendants were or should have been aware that the products contained dangerous asbestos fibers. He notes that his employers and the manufacturers of the products did nothing to warn him of the dangers.

The lawsuit also alleges that the insurance company of Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. withheld information and misrepresented the danger of asbestos exposure, which ultimately lead to Kirk’s development of mesothelioma.
