After Retiring in 2016, Man Files Lawsuit Alleging He Worked With Asbestos Fibers Due To Negligence Of Employer For 40 Years.

The most problematic element of any asbestos exposure injury is that you may not be aware you’ve been injured because symptoms may not appear for years if at all. This can occur all the while that cancerous diseases have already impacted your body. Because of this, time may be a factor which is why it is important for victims to turn to an experienced asbestos personal injury attorney expert here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates who have decades of experience fighting for the rights of our Massachusetts clients.

A couple claims that the husband’s diagnosis of asbestosis was caused by exposure to asbestos fibers during his career. Gerald Carr and Priscilla Carr have filed a complaint in the St. Clair County, Illinois Circuit Court against Anco Insulations Inc., Buffalo Air Handling Inc., and Crosby Valve LLC alleging negligence. In the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that at various times during plaintiff Gerald Carr’s career from 1973 to 2016, he was exposed to and inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers emanating from certain products manufactured, sold, distributed or installed by defendants.

The suit states that on or about September 13, 2016, he first became aware that he had developed asbestosis, an asbestos-induced disease, and that the disease was wrongfully caused by defendants’ negligence. The plaintiffs argue that Anco Insulations Inc., Buffalo Air Handling Inc., Crosby Valve LLC, and others, are responsible because the defendants allegedly negligently included asbestos fibers in their products when adequate substitutes were available and also failed to provide adequate warnings and instructions concerning the dangers of working with or around products containing asbestos fibers.
