Lawsuit Filled Alleging Asbestos Exposed Chemical Worker Suffered Fatal Mesothelioma

 A lawsuit was filed alleging that a former chemical operator at Hoffman-LaRoche in Nutley, New Jersey was exposed to asbestos fiber and died of mesothelioma. The lawsuit filed in New Jersey Superior Court asserts that he suffered injurious exposure to asbestos as a direct result of his exposure to asbestos fiber at work. The estate of the deceased worker brought the action against several manufacturers and suppliers of asbestos fiber.

The lawsuit, Huk v Bird, Inc., was filed Friday in the Superior Court of New Jersey by the law 
firm of Jon L. Gelman LLC, and Motley Rice LLC , on behalf of estate. It alleges that those companies that mined, processed and sold asbestos-containing products were knowledgeable about the harmful effects of exposure to asbestos and asbestos-containing products, and failed to provide those exposed with knowledge as to possible precautions to protect against the harmful effects of asbestos exposure.

Mesothelioma is a rare cancer associated with asbestos exposure. The rates asbestos related fatalities are predicted to continue for decades to come. Despite public outcry, and the urging of physicians, asbestos is still not banned in the United States.

Attorney Jon L. 
Gelman, who has been litigating asbestos exposure claims for over three decades, said, “It is alleged the asbestos companies put into the stream of commerce a defective, unsafe and inherently dangerous product and failed to provide reasonable warnings.”

The defendants are Bird, Inc., Certain-Teed Corp., Frank A. McBride Company, Owens-Illinois, Inc and Rapid American Corporation.
