ST. LOUIS – A man alleges that exposure to asbestos at companies in North Carolina caused him to develop lung cancer.
Terry Grant and Jeanne Grant filed a complaint on Sept. 4 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against CBS Corp., General Gasket Corp., Honeywell International Inc., et al. alleging strict liability, negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that at various times during Terry Grant's career in North Carolina from 1969 to 1980, he was exposed to and inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers emanating from certain products manufactured, sold, distributed and/or installed by defendants. The suit states that on or about Aug. 25, 2016, he first became aware that he developed lung cancer, an asbestos-induced disease, and that the disease was wrongfully caused.
The plaintiffs hold CBS Corp., General Gasket Corp., Honeywell International Inc., 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 seek compensatory damages of more than $50,000, plus interest, costs and all further relief as the court may deem just and equitable. They are represented by Benjamin R. Schmickle and Matthew C. Morris of SWMW Law LLC in St. Louis.
