ST. LOUIS – A couple alleges the husband's cancer was caused by his exposure to asbestos during his employment.
Phillip Brandt and Eileen Brandt filed a complaint on June 20 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against the DAP Inc., IMO Industries Inc., J.P. Bushnell Packaging Supply Co., et al. alleging negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that at various times during Phillip Brandt's career at various locations in Wisconsin, 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 June 29, 2017, he first became aware that he developed lung cancer, an asbestos-induced disease, and that the disease was wrongfully caused.
The plaintiffs hold DAP Inc., IMO Industries Inc., J.P. Bushnell Packaging Supply Co., et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly negligently included asbestos fibers in their products when adequate substitutes were available and failed to provide adequate warnings and instructions concerning the dangers of working with or around products containing asbestos fibers.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek compensatory damages of no less than $25,000, plus punitive damages and all further relief as the court deems just and equitable. They are represented by Wilson D. Sikes of Napoli Shkolnik PLLC in Edwardsville.
