$4.6 Million Award in asbestos lawsuit

Jury Awards Welder $4.6 Million in Asbestos Case

August 23, 2017
A jury in New York City has awarded $4.6 million to Thomas McGlynn, 75, as compensation for the mesothelioma that he contracted from exposure to asbestos-containing valves manufactured by a company called Jenkins Bros.

In the 1970s and 1980s, McGlynn worked in a position in which he handled the asbestos-laced valves and their packaging. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer, in 2016.

Jenkins Bros., of Hartford, CT., was, the jury declared partly responsible for McGlynn’s exposure to asbestos and 100 percent responsible for the “reckless” behavior that caused him to be exposed to the substance for so long.

Counsel for the company has not issued a statement on the ruling.
