A couple is suing responsible companies for causing one of them to develop mesothelioma, a terminal cancer of the lining of lungs and the abdominal and chest cavity.
David and Judith Hall have filed a complaint recently in St. Louis Circuit Court.
According to the complaint, David Hall was working as a mechanic in Kansas, Colorado and Washington in the 1960s until 1970s. He also worked as a construction worker and as a home remodeler during the same period, according the suit.
The plaintiffs say David Hall was exposed to asbestos and asbestos products during his work. The defendant companies didn’t warn him regarding the risks associated with asbestos exposure. They didn’t provide him with sufficient safety equipment either, the complaint says.
The plaintiffs are seeking compensation from the companies for causing his present condition.
