ST. LOUIS – A couple allege the husband was first exposed to asbestos while living in St. Louis through his father and that exposure partly led to him developing cancer.
Brian Counts and Lisa Counts filed a complaint on Sept. 11 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Armstrong International Corp., Crane Co., Eaton Corp., et al. alleging negligence
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that at various times during Brian Counts' career life, he was exposed to and inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers emanating from certain products manufactured, sold, distributed and/or installed by defendants. He alleges he was exposed to asbestos through his father, who worked in St. Louis, and during his own employment in Virginia and Alabama.
The suit states that on or about April 22, 2016, he first became aware that he developed lung cancer.
The plaintiffs hold Armstrong International Corp., Crane Co., Eaton Corp., 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 seek compensatory damages of more than $50,000, plus costs, interest and all further relief as the court may deem just and proper. They are represented by SWMW Law LLC in St. Louis.
