Family Awarded $4.1 Million in Asbestos Lawsuit


This is a settlement for the Asbestos Mesothelioma lawsuit.

Brazoria County, TX: A $4.1 million settlement has been awarded to the family of a man who allegedly died of asbestos mesothelioma resulting from asbestos exposure at work. Diagnosed with the fatal disease in 2008, Jerry Johnston died eight months later at the age of 63.

For eight years in the 1970s he worked at Dow Chemical where he was exposed to asbestos gaskets and packing products. His family sued 20 entities. All of them settled or were dismissed except for John Crane Inc., which went to trial. The jury attributed 15 percent of the liability to John Crane, which reduced the $27.5 million award.
