Dec. 23, 2010 - PRLog -- Dallas, Texas -Mesothelioma is a form of cancer, which is caused by exposure to asbestos. Hundreds of asbestos exposure and mesothelioma personal injury cases are filed each year. One of the more notable cases of the current year was filed by William Pfeifer against John Crane Inc. After deliberation, the jury awarded a $22.7 million dollar verdict in favor of William Pfeifer.

William Pfeifer, one of the plaintiffs in this successful mesothelioma case is a resident of California. He has been diagnosed with one of the rare forms of cancer which is caused by exposure to asbestos since June 2009. Mr. Pfeifer was exposed to asbestos products manufactured by John Crane Inc. for the duration of his 30 years tenure as boiler operator in various locations. William Pfeifer worked as a boiler operator in the US Navy where he was exposed to this fatal insulating product. The nature of his job subjected William Pfeifer to frequent exposure to asbestos while using John Crane gaskets and packing alongside a wide range of other products such as insulation.

After almost about 8 hours of deliberations, the jury established that William Pfeifer’s condition was caused mainly by the negligence of John Crane Inc. which failed to warn their customers and employees about the dangers of working with their products. This mesothelioma verdict will send out a very powerful message that companies cannot and should not take people’s lives and their rights for granted just for the sake of short term monetary benefits. Jay Steumke, lead counsel for the family notes that,  “Unfortunately, many companies today prioritize their short-term financial gain over the health and safety of their customers and the public. This jury sent a clear signal that companies like this will be held responsible.”
As per this mesothelioma verdict, $14.5 million was awarded towards punitive damages and $8.2 million was awarded towards compensatory damages.
Plaintiff attorney team included Jay E. Steumke and Rob Green of Simon, Eddins and Greenstone, LLP, Dallas Texas. To know more about this case or for other additional information on this case please visit http://www.mesothelioma.net
