$300,000 Verdict in Mesothelioma lawsuit
Valve Manufacturers Ordered to Pay in Mesothelioma Case
August 7, 2017
A jury in South Carolina has concluded that a former maintenance worker’s mesothelioma was caused by negligence on the part of two valve manufacturers whose products he handled and was proximate to on a daily basis for many years.
Beverly Dale Jolly had sought millions in damages, but was awarded only $200,000. His wife was awarded $100,000. Fisher Controls International and Crosby Controls International were the defendants in the case, and were found to have breached their implied warranty on the asbestos-laced valves.
Jolly’s case of mesothelioma, a form of lung cancer that is often associated with asbestos, is terminal. He worked as a pipefitter from 1979 to 2003, during which time he was often in the presence of asbestos-containing valves, wires, and other devices.
