Largest asbestos lawsuit thrown out by judge

A judge in Mississippi has thrown out the largest asbestos lawsuit in history after it was found that the man’s parents were involved lawsuits against some of the same companies with similar claims.

The plaintiff claimed that he developed asbestosis as a result of a working with a dirt compound that was made by Union Carbide Corporation and Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. As a result of the disease, the man requires the use of an oxygen tank 24 hours a day.

In May, the man was awarded $322 million in damages, but it was later found that his father has filed two similar suits, one that is still pending. His mother and father also already settled a case with UCC with similar claims.

Asbestos is a known carcinogen that has been linked to rare forms of lung cancer such as mesothelioma and asbestosis. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with this after being exposed to asbestos, contact the mesothelioma lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling  800-781-3955 today and discussing your legal options.
