Lauded for spearheading asbestos cases, Weitz & Luxenberg won a landmark consolidated trial in 1991 involving employees of the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s.
Our firm had 36 clients in that case and received $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 with mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). The firm has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the core of the victorious Allied war effort in the second World War.
Asbestos is a mineral. It is composed of silicon, oxygen, hydrogen and other metals. Asbestos fibers are durable, flexible and not flammable. Asbestos also insulates very well and does not break down easily. Other asbestos uses include older plastics, paper products and floor tiles.
