ST. LOUIS — A woman is suing various corporation, citing alleged negligence in using asbestos.
Dorothy Bush filed a complaint on July 14 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against A.W. Chesterton Company, AGCO Corporation, Allied Paint & Wallpaper Company, Inc., et al., alleging that they wrongfully included asbestos fibers in their products when they should have known that it was toxic and harmful to individuals.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the plaintiff found out that she had developed asbestos-related diseases, including mesothelioma on May 2, 2017, and later learned that the disease was due to her exposure to asbestos-containing products. As a result, Bush claims she suffered physical pain, mental anguish, loss earnings and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly including asbestos fibers in their products when adequate substitutes were readily available and for failing to provide adequate warnings and instructions on how to safely work with asbestos-containing products.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks for actual compensatory damages in excess of $25,000, including costs, pre- and post-judgment interest and such other and further relief as the court deems appropriate. She is represented by Brian J. Cooke and Ryan Dickherber of Simmons Hanly Conroy in Alton, Ill.
