Lauded for taking the lead in the prosecution of asbestos cases, Weitz & Luxenberg won a landmark consolidated trial in 1991 involving employees of the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s.
We have dealt with 36 clients in that case and secured $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 who had developed mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). The trial team has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the core of the triumphant Allied war effort in World War II.
Comprised of oxygen, hydrogen, silicon, and other metals, asbestos is classified as a mineral. Its fibers are durable, flexible and flame retardant. Asbestos also insulates very well and will not break down easily. Other asbestos uses include older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. Often, asbestos fibers are joined with a material that bonds them together, creating asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. Many industrial products are composed of ACM, including sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
