Ralph P. North was an employee for the construction company that built the Long Island Lighting Company’s power station in Long Island, New York. The building was built from 1966-1972. The Long Island Lighting Company was later taken over by National Grid Generation LLC.

Mr. North worked with asbestos-related materials when he applied asbestos spray to insulate boilers and pipes, and also was required to cut asbestos block and mix asbestos cement.

The Long Island Lighting Company did not post warning signs about the material nor did they provide proper equipment for their employees.

A New York state jury granted a $7 million verdict after a two-week trial. $3.5 million was largely for past pain and suffering and $3.5 million is for future pain and suffering.

The $7 million award is reportedly the largest asbestos verdict ever issued against a power company.
