ST. LOUIS – A man who worked at various locations in Missouri alleges exposure to asbestos caused him to develop lung cancer.
Lonnie Chandler and Judy Chandler filed a complaint on Dec. 20 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Armstrong Pumps Inc., et al. alleging strict liability and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that at various times during Lonnie Chandler's career at locations in Missouri from 1967 to 1989 and while he was in the U.S. Army in the 1960s, 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 Aug. 16, 2017, he first became aware that he developed lung cancer, an asbestos-induced disease.
The plaintiffs hold Armstrong Pumps Inc., et al. responsible because the defendant 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 request a trial by jury and seek compensatory and economic damages of more than $50,000. They are represented Gori, Julian & Associates PC in Edwardsville, Illinois.
