Weitz & Luxenberg is known for taking the lead in the prosecution of asbestos cases, having won a landmark consolidated trial in 1991 involving employees of the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s.
We have 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 verdict in New York for a brake mechanic diagnosed with mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). Weitz & Luxenberg has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the heart of the successful Allied war effort in WWII.
Comprised of oxygen, hydrogen, silicon, and various metals, asbestos is classified as a mineral. Its fibers are strong, flexible and flame retardant. Asbestos also insulates very well and doesn't break down easily. Asbestos has been used in older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. Commonly, asbestos fibers are combined with a matter that holds them together, resulting in asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. A range of industrial products are created with ACM, including sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
Thousands of individuals worked in the armed forces and had contact with asbestos for decades without knowing that this could one day result in the life-threatening disease: lung cancer.
