$12.1 Million Verdict Awarded in Ohio Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Trial lawyers secured a total $12 million verdict on behalf of an 83-year-old Korean War veteran Robert Mitchell who contracted mesothelioma after years of working with asbestos-containing packing material.

Mitchell worked in the stock room at the Pfaudler Co. plant in Elyria, Ohio, for more than 40 years. His responsibilities included assisting in the shipping of specialized glass-coated steel bowls used in chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing. The work required spending several hours every week cutting rope packing with a band saw, which threw asbestos particles into the air. Despite the packing material's high concentration of blue crocidolite asbestos, Pfaudler was never warned of the potential dangers or advised on proper handling by Crane Packing Co. (now John Crane, Inc.), the material's manufacturer.
