Recognized for taking the lead in the prosecution of asbestos cases, Weitz & Luxenberg won a landmark consolidated trial in 1991 in regards to Brooklyn Navy Yard workers in the 1940s and 1950s.
We have managed 36 clients in that case and secured $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 who had developed mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). Weitz & Luxenberg has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the base of the successful Allied war effort in the second World War.
Composed of oxygen, hydrogen, silicon, and other metals, asbestos is classified as a mineral. Asbestos fibers are strong, flexible and will not burn. Asbestos also insulates very well and will not break down easily. Asbestos has been used in older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. Commonly, asbestos fibers are combined with a substance that joins them together, leading to the creation of asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. Several industrial products are comprised of ACM, including sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
Thousands of Americans were part of the armed services and were exposed to asbestos for much of their lives without knowing that this could one day cause the mortal disease: lung cancer.
