ST. LOUIS — A man is suing multiple corporations, some of which are based in the St. Louis area, citing alleged failure to protect and failure to warn individuals of the harmful effects of asbestos.
David Fisher Jr. filed a complaint June 21 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Ameren Illinois Co., Anheuser-Busch LLC, Armstrong Pumps Inc., et al, alleging that the defendants failed their duty to exercise reasonable care and caution for the safety of their employees and others working with or around their products.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges he was first exposed to asbestos-containing products in the St. Louis area in 1958. The plaintiff claims he was exposed to and inhaled, ingested or otherwise absorbed asbestos fibers emanating from certain products of the defendants. Fisher claims he first became aware that he had developed lung cancer July 17, 2015.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to provide warnings to people working with or around the products, failed to provide adequate instructions on how to avoid inhaling asbestos and failed to conduct tests on the asbestos-containing products.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for compensatory damages in excess of $50,000, plus costs, pre- and post-judgment interest and such other and further relief as the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Randy L. Gori and Barry Julian of Gori, Julian & Associates PC in Edwardsville, Illinois.
