Recognized for spearheading asbestos cases, Weitz & Luxenberg won a landmark consolidated trial in 1991 concerning men who had worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s.
We have represented 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 verdict in New York for a brake mechanic stricken by mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). The firm has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the core of the triumphant Allied war effort in World War II.
Asbestos is a mineral. It is composed of silicon, oxygen, hydrogen and other metals. Its fibers are tough, flexible and not flammable. Asbestos also insulates very well and won't break down easily. Other asbestos uses include older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. Sometimes, asbestos fibers are mixed with a material that binds them together, leading to the creation of asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. Lots of industrial products are made of ACM, including sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
