Pipe fitters, cancer, and the fight for asbestos compensation
Pipe fitters with cancer from asbestos exposure may get a free lawsuit review via the form on this page
From 1940 until 1953 George Benson worked as a pipe fitter at a refinery. Four decades later he died of asbetsos related lung cancer.
Benson's children are now claiming their father was negligently exposed to asbestos during those years and are suing his former employer. The family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.
Benson worked as pipe fitter helper and general laborer. During his years at the plant, he was allegedly exposed to asbestos containing products, which, in turn, led to his lung cancer.
Even after officials at the refinery knew the terrible truth about the propensity of asbestos to cripple, maim and kill, they remained mute when by reasonable effort they could have prevented the risk of cancer, says court documents.
Benson's lawyers claim he was negligently told to handle asbestos-containing products, such as thermal and electrical insulation products, flooring materials, textiles, gaskets, wicking and packing, mastics, cement products and coatings, the suit said.
