Plaintiffs Rose-Marie Grigg and the estate of her deceased husband, Martin Grigg, were recently awarded over $27 million by an Oakland, California jury in an asbestos injury lawsuit against Owens-Illinois, Inc., an insulation producer.
Mrs. Grigg was reportedly exposed to asbestos after years of washing and shaking out her late husband’s work clothing. Her husband worked with the insulation material made by Owens-Illinois during the 1950s. The insulation material contained large amounts of asbestos that easily became airborne.
At trial, the Griggs’s attorneys introduced evidence indicating that the insulation manufacturer knew that the insulation could cause serious personal injuries and diseases, such as mesothelioma and lung cancer, from prolonged asbestos exposure. Nonetheless, the insulation manufacturer advertised the insulation as non-toxic and completely safe.
The jury award included $11 million in punitive damages against the insulation company.
