Couple pursues asbestos litigation over husband's injuries

Victims who develop mesothelioma or other related diseases often do so after only being exposed to asbestos from a single source, such as through employment. However, some victims in South Carolina might have developed asbestos-related diseases after multiple sources of exposure. One couple is currently in the middle of asbestos litigation for this type of situation.

The couple, who live in a different state, filed a lawsuit that named multiple defendants, including Johnson & Johnson, Brenntag Specialties Inc., Brenntag North America Inc., 3M Co., and more. The suit claims that these companies were negligent in their use of asbestos. The couple claims that the various companies did not adequately warn people about asbestos exposure or provide warning on product packages. The suit also alleges that the defendants did not properly design or manufacture products that were safe to use.

The husband says that he developed injuries because of ongoing exposure to asbestos through the products that these companies manufactured. One of the places that exposure took place was at his place of work, which was through a local school district. He also claims that he had used talcum powders and Old Spice, which were also sources of exposure. The suit also points to the clothing the man had received from his late father, but did not specify the manner in which the clothing was contaminated with asbestos.

Developing a disease or suffering an injury after being exposed to asbestos is a very difficult experience. Most people end up with large medical bills or related damages that make it difficult to continue living life as normal. Pursuing compensation through asbestos litigation could be helpful for South Carolina victims and their families who are going through this ordeal.
