California worker files mesothelioma lawsuit

January 29th, 2007

A former repair worker from California has filed a mesothelioma lawsuit in Wisconsin. Rolland Bowen alleges that asbestos found in the products with which he worked caused him to receive a mesothelioma diagnosis. More than 90 defendant corporations were named in Bowen’s mesothelioma lawsuit, including Dow Chemical, Ford Motor Co., General Motors, Goodyear, Sears and U.S. Steel.

Bowen worked as a laborer, mechanic, and factory worker and at other jobs from 1942 until 2003. In his mesothelioma lawsuit, he alleges that he was exposed to asbestos in the workplace and that this exposure caused him to develop mesothelioma symptoms. Mesothelioma is a deadly cancer of the lungs, heart or abdomen that is caused by asbestos exposure.

According to the complaint filed by his mesothelioma lawyer, Bowen alleges that the defendant corporations failed to use available substitutes in their products instead of asbestos. He also alleges that they failed to provide workers with the means or instruction necessary to limit the risk of mesothelioma symptoms from asbestos exposure.

Bowen’s mesothelioma lawsuit seeks damages in order to pay for the costs of his mesothelioma treatment. In addition, he is seeking an unspecified amount of punitive damages for what his mesothelioma lawsuit calls the “willful, wanton, intentional and reckless misconduct” of the companies.
