ST. LOUIS – A man alleges his late wife developed mesothelioma as a result of secondary exposure to asbestos.
Gerald Day filed a complaint on Nov. 9 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Alfa Laval Inc., Flowserve US Inc., Warren Pumps LLC, et al. alleging negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that his wife, Reba Day, was secondarily 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 22, his wife was diagnosed with mesothelioma, an asbestos-induced disease, and she died on July 4.
The plaintiff holds Alfa Laval Inc., Flowserve US Inc., Warren Pumps LLC, et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide information regarding the safe handling and cleaning apparel to avoid exposure to asbestos.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages of more than $25,000 costs and all other relief that is just and proper. He is represented by Andrew A.
