On June 1, 2011 a lawsuit was filed by the estate of Milan Arthur Barackman by Michael Grant Mason. Mason filed the lawsuit thirty years after Barackman was exposed to asbestos on a United States Navy vessel. According to Mesothelioma.US, a news site for the disease, the lawsuit claims that Barackman was exposed to the material during the late 1960s and early 1970s and that he inhaled asbestos during these years, later resulting in his developing Mesothelioma. The estate of Barackman has filed a wrongful death suit against Foster Wheeler, Owens-Illinois Inc., General Electric Co., Uniroyal Inc., Riley Power Inc., Rapid American Corp. and Viacom Inc. with U.S. District Judge Jay C. Zainey presiding over Case No. 2:11-cv-01309. The suit claims that Barackman's diagnoses with Mesothelioma last year was a direct result of asbestos exposure.
Plaintiffs in the case argue that the listed defendants were allegedly manufacturing a dangerous product and yet gave no warning to Barackman or others of the dangers of being exposed to asbestos. This is not a single case. There are literally thousands of people suffering with this disease and more being diagnosed every day. Those who are diagnosed undergo Mesothelioma treatment which can be very expensive. Due to the fact that exposure to this dangerous product causes the disease, many seek compensation to pay for treatment of Mesothelioma as well as general pain and suffering.
