Mesothelioma victim, wife file suit for asbestos exposure

South Carolina patients who develop serious, life-threatening medical issues suffer more than just physical symptoms. Many deal with ongoing and severe emotional distress related to their illnesses. This is often true for patients dealing with mesothelioma, a fatal cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Some victims decide to channel their emotional distress toward holding those responsible for their asbestos exposure accountable.

An elderly wife and her husband with mesothelioma filed a suit against more than a dozen defendants. According to the claim, the husband began working during the 1950s. During his decades of work, he says that he was routinely and repeatedly exposed to asbestos fibers, which he inhaled and ingested. The defendants -- including Ameron International -- allegedly sold, distributed, manufactured or installed the asbestos-tainted products. He also asserts that he was never warned of the dangers of asbestos or given any guidance on its safe handling.

The victim points out that all he had done was pursue a normal course of employment when, through no fault of his own, he was exposed to large amounts of asbestos. He and his wife claim that his resulting mesothelioma diagnosis caused him to suffer both physical pain and mental anguish. As a result, the suit also claims that the wife has lost the companionship of her husband.

Asbestos is an extremely unsafe substance that can lead to devastating outcomes. Although money can never undo the harm caused by negligent asbestos exposure, compensation can go a long way for South Carolina victims with mesothelioma. Any resulting legal recourse might be applied to medical bills, lost wages, physical and emotional trauma and more.
