Known for spearheading asbestos cases, Weitz & Luxenberg won a noteworthy consolidated trial in 1991 involving Brooklyn Navy Yard workers in the 1940s and 1950s.
Our firm 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 diagnosed with mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). The trial team has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the base of the successful Allied war effort in World War II.
Asbestos is a mineral. It is composed of silicon, oxygen, hydrogen and other metals. Asbestos fibers are tough, flexible and will not burn. Asbestos also insulates very well and does not break down easily. Other asbestos uses include older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. In some cases, asbestos fibers are joined with a substance that binds them together, producing asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. Several industrial products are comprised of ACM, for instance sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
