A man filed a lawsuit in New Orleans after he was diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma. He is suing thirty-one different companies for alleged asbestos exposure, which he blames for his condition. He claims that these different companies are responsible for this exposure due to the fact that he lived near manufacturing plants with asbestos and scrap metal stockpiles, and that his father carried fibrous asbestos home when he worked for two of these different companies. Shell Oil, ExxonMobil, and Chevron USA Inc. are a few of the defendants in the claim. The man is alleging that the companies negligently worked with this toxic substance, did not recall their products with defects, failed to maintain a safe workplace (for his father), and more. The man is suing for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and more.

Asbestos exposure at work is the top reason people contract mesothelioma. This refers primarily to the people who actually were employed in an asbestos-filled job site. But other family members who came in regular contact with clothes riddled with asbestos have been known to come down with this lethal disease as well. There have even been millions of people in the U.S. who had this lung disease from neighboring factories and mines that emitted asbestos.

If you or a loved one has suffered exposure to toxic substances at work, or if you have suffered from a workplace accident, then you are likely entitled to compensation.
