Texas Woman Brings Lawsuit Following Asbestos-Related Death

Last week's blog discussed where asbestos might be found in everyday life. Recently, a Texas woman brought a lawsuit asserting that her husband died of lung cancer which was caused by asbestos exposure. The woman's deceased husband previously worked for an oil company and the woman asserts he was exposed to toxins such as asbestos, including asbestos dust and asbestos fibers while working for the company. The woman's husband died from lung cancer which is a disease known to be related to asbestos exposure.

The woman's lawsuit accuses the oil company of wrongdoing, asserting that it allowed employees to work while exposed to asbestos when the dangers of asbestos were known. The woman is seeking damages from the oil company for the loss of her husband.

The most common asbestos-related disease or illness is lung cancer. In addition, lung cancer is the leading cancer that results in cancer fatalities. Other illnesses and diseases that can result from asbestos exposure include mesothelioma and asbestosis. All of the illnesses and diseases associated with asbestos exposure are serious and can be fatal.

Liability for harm caused by asbestos exposure may rest with a variety of different parties. Because families of victims of asbestos-related illnesses and diseases may suffer a variety of damages, including financial and emotional damages, legal options to protect surviving family members may be available.

It is important to understand the unique circumstances of each situation when determining liability, damages, and the types of help that may be available to surviving family members who have suffered the loss of a loved one to asbestos-related illnesses or diseases. A variety of different legal remedies and protections may be available to victims of asbestos exposure, including family members who may suffer the loss of a loved one or sometimes be exposed themselves.
