Weitz & Luxenberg is known for spearheading asbestos cases, having won a historic consolidated trial in 1991 involving men who had worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s.
Our firm handled 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 decision in New York for a brake mechanic suffering with mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). The Asbestos team has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the base of the victorious Allied war effort in World War II.
Asbestos is a mineral. It is composed of silicon, oxygen, hydrogen and other metals. Fibers made of asbestos are durable, flexible and flame retardant. Asbestos also insulates very well and does not break down easily. Other asbestos uses include older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. In most cases, asbestos fibers are mixed with a substance that joins them together, producing asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. Various industrial products are comprised of ACM, including sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
Thousands of Americans worked in the armed forces and were exposed to asbestos for much of their lives unaware of the fact that this could one day cause the fatal disease: mesothelioma.
