Asbestos-Liability Lawsuit Brought in Texas Against Oil Company

A lawsuit was recently brought in Texas against a major oil and gas company, alleging the company caused an employee's death by exposing him to asbestos dust and fibers. The wife of the deceased worker brought a lawsuit against the gas and oil company. The surviving spouse of the worker asserts in her lawsuit that while working for the oil and gas company, her husband was exposed to toxic materials including dust and fibers from asbestos.

The lawsuit further asserts that because of the worker's toxic exposure to asbestos, he developed a disease related to asbestos exposure, mesothelioma, from which he died. According to the lawsuit, the gas and oil company was aware for decades that asbestos products were dangerous to employees but continued to allow employees to work with and around asbestos products. The gas and oil company is accused of gross negligence.

Victims of asbestos exposure may suffer a number of different damages but may also have a number of different legal options available to assist them when harmed. Damages associated with asbestos exposure can be significant and can include physical, financial and emotional harm, as well as lead to fatalities and the harm families may suffer in addition to victims.

When a loved one has suffered harm because of something as serious and asbestos exposure, or a disease as devastating as mesothelioma, it is important for families to keep in mind that there are legal options available to them so that they have to focus less on the financial challenges and damages they have suffered and can focus more on recovery to the extent possible.
