Lipsitz, Ponterio & Comerford recently settled a mesothelioma case on behalf of a former warehouse worker whose only exposure to asbestos occurred during summers while he was a college student. His primary exposure occurred when he removed solid state insulation from cardboard shipping boxes. This removal process caused sufficient amounts of airborne asbestos fibers to induce mesothelioma four decades later.
The case settled with all defendants for approximately $6.4 million. Due to the confidential nature of the settlement, the names of the settling parties and the amount contributed by each company to the overall settlement cannot be disclosed.
