ST. LOUIS – The surviving son of a woman previously employed as a florist, bookkeeper and carpenter alleges his mother was injured by exposure to asbestos during her career.
Richard J. Gajdosik filed a complaint on Jan. 10 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Nooter Corp., CBS Corp., Foster Wheeler Energy Corp., et al. alleging negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that at various times during his deceased mother Mary Gajdosik's career from 1947 to 1979, she was exposed to and inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers emanating from certain products manufactured, sold, distributed or installed by defendants, which caused her to develop an asbestos-induced disease.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly intentionally included asbestos fibers in their products when the mineral has 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 plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages of more than $25,000, plus costs and any further relief that the court may deem proper and just. He is represented by Andrew A. O'Brien, Christopher J. Thoron, Bartholomew J. Baumstark, Gerald J. FitzGerald and Adam J. Reynolds of O'Brien Law Firm PC in St. Louis.
