$1.6 Million Asbestos Verdict Upheld; Meso Victims Must Stop Suffering in Silence
April 1, 2015 | By admin
Steven Kaenzig was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2011 and claims his disease is the result of asbestos brought home on his father’s work clothes. It’s been four years but Kaenzig finally has something to celebrate. In fact, the March 27 NJ Appellate Court ruling in favor of sustaining Kaenzig’s $1.6 million verdict against the Charles B. Chrystal Co. was a significant victory for all victims of asbestos exposure.
Kaenzig’s father worked for Whittaker, Clark and Daniels, a South Plainfield-based talcum powder distributor until 1975. Kaenzig claims the exposure occurred during the first eight years of his life until his father left the company. The decision renews the hope that victims of asbestos poisoning can get the justice they seek and deserve, particularly with the right representation.
Though the case is believed to be the first asbestos suit involving cosmetic talc, Kaenzig’s overall situation is a tragically common one. Too many people are paying the ultimate price because they worked in a hazardous environment in an effort to provide for their families during a less regulated era. An estimated 10,000 people per year die from asbestos-related illnesses, while many thousands more are devastated by terminal diagnoses.
One of the cruelest parts of asbestos poisoning is that it can take decades to develop. By this time, victims may think they have no recourse and nobody to hold accountable for their diagnosis. In the mean time, they’re facing mounting medical expenses and worrying about the future of their family. The right attorney can help you get the damages to which you’re entitled, giving you and your family some peace of mind in an incredibly stressful situation.
