Widow Obtains Substantial Settlement in Asbestos Cancer-Death Lawsuit


This is a settlement for the Asbestos Mesothelioma lawsuit.

New York, NY: A sizable settlement has been paid to the widow of a Montvale, N.J., man who died from peritoneal mesothelioma cancer. The settlement, negotiated on behalf of the widow, Robin Veraldo, was obtained midway through trial.

The amount of the settlement was not disclosed, but the New York-based law firm described it as "substantial."

Mrs. Veraldo sued as executrix of the estate of her late husband, Randy Veraldo. He was 52 when he died in 2009, seven months after being diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma cancer, court records show.

According to those documents, Randy Veraldo was a parts handler at a Teterboro, N.J., warehouse from 1978-85. The job required him to unpack clutch plates delivered on a near-daily basis from various suppliers. The clutch plates were said to contain asbestos, a mineral once widely used in the U.S. as a cheap insulating material until it was found to cause mesothelioma cancer.
