Weitz & Luxenberg is known for pioneering asbestos cases, having won a noteworthy consolidated trial in 1991 in regards to men who had worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s.
We have represented 36 clients in that case and won $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 diagnosed with mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). The firm has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the backbone of the victorious Allied war effort in WWII.
Composed of oxygen, hydrogen, silicon, and other metals, asbestos is classified as a mineral. Its fibers are powerful, flexible and will not burn. Asbestos also insulates very well and doesn't break down easily. Asbestos has been used in older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. Generally, asbestos fibers are blended with a substance that joins them together, constructing an asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. Countless industrial products are comprised of ACM, for instance sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
