Couple blames lung cancer on asbestos exposure

Asbestos is often considered a problem of the past that few people South Carolina need to worry about. However, asbestos is still used in a wide range of products and new exposures are still a frightening reality. Additionally, because of the of the nature of how asbestos exposure causes damage, those who had a problem with it in the past have to worry about the consequences now.

A married couple from another state recently filed a lawsuit against multiple defendants, including Borg-Warner Morse TEC LLC. According to their claim, the husband was routinely exposed to asbestos during his working career during the 1960s and '70s. He says the exposure was both inhaled and ingested.

The named defendants allegedly manufactured and distributed products that contained asbestos even when there were well-suited alternatives available. Additionally, the victim claims that the products he used while working did not come with instructions regarding their safe handling or warnings that they contained asbestos. He allegedly spent decades working with these types of products without ever fully understanding the risk he was at. He was later diagnosed with lung cancer.

The couple blame his lung cancer on the decades of asbestos exposure that he suffered. This is unfortunately a common outcome for South Carolina victims. Mesothelioma is an incurable lung cancer attributed to asbestos exposure, and it is a frightening reality for many people. Compensation from successfully pursued civil suits can help victims address the financial damages associated with their illness, as well as the emotional and physical suffering that come along with it.
