The Southwest Texas Record reported on Feb. 13, 2008 that the family of a refinery worker who died of asbestos-related lung cancer, has filed suit against E.I. DuPont De Nemours and Chevron USA.
The suit claims that the chemical companies negligently exposed the man to asbestos during his career.The family contends that during his employment, he used and was exposed to toxic and carcinogenic dusts, including asbestos.
Furthermore, reported the Record, the suit says Dupont and Chevron knew for decades that asbestos could cause deadly lung disease and cancers and still allowed their employees to work with and around that product in the workplace.
