$2 Million for Illinois Postal WorkerSeptember 17th, 2009
Weitz & Luxenberg has protected the legal rights of workers since 1986. And in that time the firm’s mesothelioma lawyers have won several billion dollars in verdicts and settlements for clients injured by asbestos.
A former Illinois postal worker charged in a lawsuit that he developed mesothelioma cancer from occupational asbestos exposure.
After a three-week trial, the jury agreed, granting him a $2-million verdict last month.
The postman asserted that he was exposed to asbestos while using certain products during his work duties.
The 69-year-old was awarded $1.5 million in damages, and his wife was granted $500,000 for loss of consortium, The State Journal-Register reported.
Government sources estimate that in the next decade more than 35,000 people nationwide will be diagnosed with the deadliest form of asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma.
