There are a number of facilities that have been instituted for servicemen & servicewomen of the American armed forces. A current list of the facilities in Alabama can be found here.
Known for pioneering asbestos cases, Weitz & Luxenberg won a notable consolidated trial in 1991 in regards to Brooklyn Navy Yard workers in the 1940s and 1950s.
Our firm 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 verdict in New York for a brake mechanic suffering from mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). The trial team has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the backbone of the triumphant Allied war effort in the second World War.
Asbestos is a mineral. It is composed of silicon, oxygen, hydrogen and other metals. Fibers made of asbestos are strong, flexible and not flammable. Asbestos also insulates very well and will not break down easily. Other asbestos uses include older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. In some cases, asbestos fibers are blended with a substance that holds them together, creating asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. Assorted industrial products are composed of ACM, like sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
Many individuals fulfilled their duty to the armed services and had contact with asbestos for an extended amount of time unaware of the fact that this could one day lead to the mortal disease: mesothelioma.
