Family Awarded Multi-Million Dollar Settlement in Mesothelioma Lawsuit

A family in New York was awarded a multi-million dollar settlement in a mesothelioma lawsuit. The family of a man who died of mesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos exposure, was awarded the settlement after a jury found that the exposure was caused by the negligence of several companies.

The man, William Petroski, was exposed to asbestos while working as a boilermaker for General Electric and at an asbestos factory in New Jersey. He developed mesothelioma in 2013 and died in 2014.

In the lawsuit, the family alleged that the companies had failed to provide proper safety equipment and warnings about the dangers of asbestos exposure. They also argued that the companies had failed to take steps to protect their workers from the deadly cancer.

After hearing testimony from experts, the jury found that the companies had acted negligently and were liable for Mr. Petroski’s death. They awarded the family $7.8 million in damages.

The settlement is a victory for the Petroski family and for victims of mesothelioma. It highlights the importance of holding companies accountable for their actions and ensuring that workers are protected from asbestos exposure.

Mesothelioma is an aggressive and deadly cancer caused by asbestos exposure. It typically takes decades for symptoms to develop, making it difficult to diagnose. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it is important to speak to an experienced mesothelioma lawyer who can help you determine if you have a claim.
