ST. LOUIS – Several individuals have filed a suit against companies over allegations that exposure to asbestos caused harm to them or their decedents.
William Jones, et al. filed a complaint on Jan. 9 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Crown, Cork & Seal USA Inc., et al. alleging wrongful death and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that at various times during plaintiffs and/or their decedents' employment, they were exposed to and inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers emanating from certain products manufactured, sold, distributed or installed by defendants. As a result, the suit states plaintiffs and/or their decedents were caused to develop asbestos-induced diseases, which were wrongfully caused.
The plaintiffs holds Crown, Cork & Seal USA Inc., et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly intentionally included asbestos fibers in their products when they knew that the products had toxic, poisonous and highly deleterious effects 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 seek compensatory damages of no less than $50,000, plus costs, interest and all further relief that the court may deem Just and equitable. They are represented by Benjamin R. Schmickle and Matthew C. Morris of SWMW Law LLC in St. Louis.
