ST. LOUIS – Several individuals have filed a suit over allegations of asbestos-related injuries against multiple companies.
Eugene McCoy, et al. filed a complaint on Jan. 10 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against CBS Corp., et al. alleging negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that at various times during plaintiffs and/or their decedents' careers, they were exposed to and inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers emanating from certain products manufactured, sold, distributed or installed by defendants. As a result, plaintiffs and/or their decedents allegedly were caused to develop asbestos-induced diseases, which they allege were wrongfully caused.
The plaintiffs hold CBS 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 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 Benjamin R. Schmickle and Matthew C. Morris of SWMW Law LLC in St. Louis.
