Charleston – A couple from Ripley has filed a lawsuit against 58 companies, claiming that the defendants are liable for an asbestos-related lung cancer.
Gay Williams was diagnosed with Asbestos-related lung cancer on January 25, the suit filed on 22nd March in Kanawha Circuit Court says.
According to the plaintiffs, Williams was exposed to deadly asbestos and asbestos products all through his employment as a laborer between 1966 and 2005.
The defendant companies didn’t warn Williams regarding the hazards of asbestos while negligently exposing him to the cancer-causing substance, the couple says.
The plaintiffs ask for a court trail to resolve the issues. A visiting judge has been assigned the case.
