Our Firm Recovers $14 Million for Shipfitters Harmed by Asbestos Exposure
Weitz & Luxenberg has successfully fought to bring financial security to shipfitters and other shipyard workers who unknowingly suffered from exposure to asbestos dust.
In one of the firm's asbestos trial victories, we won a $14 million verdict for five plaintiffs who had worked for shipyards, powerhouses and construction sites. None of them had been informed that their daily exposure to asbestos dust could eventually harm them.
Sadly, four of the five workers were not alive to bring the cases themselves, and representatives did so on their behalf.
As a result of the lawsuits, the surviving relatives of these workers gained a source of financial support.
