Exxon Faces Another Mesothelioma Suit

The wife of a former Exxon worker, Nancy Morton, has filed an asbestos lawsuit after her husband passed away due to mesothelioma in December 2007.  Her husband, Stanley Morton, had worked for the oil company's ships for many years and was diagnosed with mesothelioma in April of 2006. His 33 year career aboard the ships, mainly acting as an electrician, caused him to be exposed to many harmful substances. These included diesel, gasoline fume, solvent, silica, and asbestos.

The lawsuit claims that Exxon negligently failed to protect their workers from the inhalation of ingestion of these harmful materials, causing them to develop fatal diseases, such as mesothelioma. Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases often take many decades to show symptoms. Mr. Morton did not begin to feel sick until 2005, when he had one of his lungs removed. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma about one year later. His wife, Nancy, seeks $10 million in damages and in excess of $500, 000 for medical expenses.
