ST. LOUIS – A man alleges he was injured from exposure to asbestos during his career.
Gerald L. Adlon and Dorothy Adlon filed a complaint on March 28 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Anheuser-Busch LLC, Cerro Flow Products LLC, Viad Corp., et al. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that at various times during Gerald Adlon's employment beginning in 1949 at various locations in Missouri, he was exposed to and inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers emanating from certain products manufactured, sold, distributed or installed by defendants. The suit states that on or about March 2018, he first became aware that he developed mesothelioma, an asbestos-induced disease.
The plaintiffs hold Anheuser-Busch LLC, Cerro Flow Products LLC, Viad Corp., et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly intentionally included asbestos fibers in their products when they knew that it had toxic, poisonous and highly deleterious effect to human health and failed to provide adequate warnings and instructions concerning the dangers of working with or around products containing asbestos fibers.
The plaintiffs seek economic, punitive and exemplary damages of more than $50,000. They are represented by Randy L. Gori of Gori, Julian & Associates PC in Edwardsville.
