ST. LOUIS — A woman is suing a number of corporations, alleging their products and conduct are responsible for her relative's death from lung cancer.
Bobbie Holloway, as the surviving heir of Robert Holloway, deceased filed a complaint on June 20, in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against 3M Co.; Bechtel Corp.; Burnham LLC; Borgwarner Morse Tec LLC, et al. alleging that the defendants failed to exercise reasonable care and caution for the safety of the decedent and others working with or around asbestos-containing products.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 1963, Robert Holloway was first exposed to asbestos-containing products while working for Henkels & McCoy in Mississippi. She claims he was exposed to and inhaled, ingested or otherwise absorbed asbestos fibers emanating from certain products of the defendants. Robert Holloway was diagnosed with lung cancer on Oct. 25, 2015, that ultimately led to his death.
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 actual and compensatory damages, punitive and exemplary damages in an amount in excess of $25,000 for each count and such other relief which the court deems proper.
