Known for spearheading asbestos cases, Weitz & Luxenberg won a notable consolidated trial in 1991 in regards to Brooklyn Navy Yard workers in the 1940s and 1950s.
The law firm of Weitz and Luxenberg dealt with 36 clients in that case and won $75 million. Another case yielded a $64.65 million award for four asbestos plaintiffs in 1996 (NY, docket # 10893/95), and, in 2002, the firm won a $53 million decision in New York for a brake mechanic suffering from mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). The firm has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the foundation of the victorious Allied war effort in World War II.
Asbestos is a mineral. It is composed of silicon, oxygen, hydrogen and other metals. Its fibers are powerful, flexible and not flammable. Asbestos also insulates very well and will not break down easily. Asbestos has been used in older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. Generally, asbestos fibers are joined with a material that binds them together, creating asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. Lots of industrial products are made of ACM, for example sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
Numerous individuals served in the armed services and lived alongside asbestos for decades unaware of the fact that this could one day bring about the lethal disease: mesothelioma.
