Lauded for pioneering asbestos cases, Weitz & Luxenberg won a landmark consolidated trial in 1991 concerning employees of the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s.
We have had 36 clients in that case and collected $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 diagnosed with mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). Weitz & Luxenberg has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the hub of the triumphant Allied war effort in WWII.
Asbestos is a mineral. It is composed of silicon, oxygen, hydrogen and other metals. Fibers made of asbestos are strong, flexible and will not burn. Asbestos also insulates very well and won't break down easily. Other asbestos uses include older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. Usually, asbestos fibers are mixed with a material that binds them together, resulting in asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. Lots of industrial products are created with ACM, such as sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
Large amounts of people fulfilled their duty to the armed forces and were exposed to asbestos for decades not realizing that this could one day result in the lethal disease: lung cancer.
