Asbestos Exposure Lawsuit Leads to $10 Million Settlement from U.S. Engineering Company
Asbestos exposure in Missouri courthouse leads to lawsuits
The family of a Missouri woman who died from mesothelioma, a cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, has been awarded $10 million in a settlement with U.S. Engineering Company for mishandling asbestos in the Jackson County Courthouse in Kansas City, Missouri.
The lawsuit claimed U.S. Engineering did not follow the proper rules and procedures when handling asbestos, and that now, significant amounts of asbestos still remain in the courthouse. The lawyers for the plaintiff claimed there has been “significant accumulations of asbestos dust in and around the heating and air conditioning systems at the Courthouse for a number of years.”
The woman worked for 27 years in the Jackson County Courthouse.
In addition, a class action lawsuit has been filed for anyone that worked in the courthouse on a daily basis who may have been exposed to asbestos dust from 1983 to the present.
