In recent news about mesothelioma verdicts and settlements, a woman whose husband died from mesothelioma cancer has won a seven-year compensation fight. He was reportedly exposed to cancer-causing asbestos in building demolition.
The former bosses of a demolition firm have been forced to pay up to settle the asbestos case.
The man died of mesothelioma in 2001 after being exposed to asbestos working for the firm in the 1960s.
But because the firm's insurance company had gone bankrupt, his wife of 46 years - had to start a lawsuit to seek compensation for her husband's malignant mesothelioma.
When her asbestos lawyer effectively secured a settlement, she reportedly said: "I am truly grateful to my asbestos attorneys but no amount of money will make up for losing my husband. This mesothelioma case should never have taken as long as it has, people should have accepted their responsibilities sooner."
Her husband reportedly came in to contact with deadly asbestos dust in demolition work--as buildings and equipment were demolished and stripped.
