Couple claims man contracted cancer from work with 46 companies

An Orange County man and woman have filed lawsuits against 46 different corporations, claiming the lung cancer with which the man was diagnosed in 2009, was wrongfully caused.  Doug and Brenda York claim that Doug York was diagnosed with the disease in December.  The Yorks say Doug worked as a pipefitter for various companies between the years of 1972 and 1985.  These companies include Mobil, Olin, Texaco, Fina, Jefferson Chemical, Houston Chemical, Union 76 and Gulf Oil Corp.

The Yorks claim that Doug's cancer was caused after he was exposed to asbestos fibers at these companies. York claims that he did not know of the hazards of asbestos exposure at the time.  The Yorks state that the defendants failed to adequately warn Doug of the serious health hazards associated with asbestos exposure and failed to provide him with what would be considered adequate and safe working apparel.  The Yorks are also accusing the defendants of negligently failing to test their products before they were released into the stream of commerce and failing to recall materials containing asbestos.  

Brenda York claims to have lost Doug York's care, maintenance, services, support, advice, counsel and consortium as a result of his asbestos exposure.  She also claims to have suffered mental anguish.
