$17.87 Million Verdict Awarded by Jury in Asbestos Mesothelioma Lawsuit

This is a settlement for the $1.5 Million lawsuit.

Bloomington, IL: A $17.87 million verdict was rendered on February 8, in favor of Jayne Menssen who filed an asbestos exposure lawsuit against a factory in Bloomington, where she worked in the 1960s. A jury reached the verdict after deliberating for just one day following the four-week trial.

According to a statement issued by her lawyer, Menssen developed asbestos mesothelioma as a result of being exposed to the lethal mineral while working as a secretary at Union Asbestos and Rubber Co, later called Unacro Industries Inc, from 1967 to 1969. The complaint argued that the defendants, Pneumo Abex LLC and Honeywell International Inc, and their corporate predecessors knew of but failed to warn employees and customers of the hazards of asbestos.
