Mesothelioma lawsuit alleges companies destroyed evidence

June 25th, 2007

A Texas man has filed a mesothelioma lawsuit in Illinois against more than 100 corporations who he claims caused him to be exposed to asbestos. Allen Donely claims that he suffered asbestos exposure in the workplace and also from fibers carried home on his father’s clothing.

Donely’s father worked as a painter and auto body repairman. According to the mesothelioma lawsuit, the asbestos fibers he carried home on his clothing would become airborne in the home, causing Donely to be exposed.

In addition, Donely says that he worked as a painter, steelworker, factory worker, drill rig worker and other jobs from 1966 until 1980, during which time he was exposed to asbestos. He alleges that this wrongful exposure to the mineral caused him to receive a mesothelioma diagnosis in 2005.

Donely’s mesothelioma lawsuit also states that he has been unable to obtain documents necessary to prove his case from the companies responsible for his asbestos exposure. According to the complaint filed by his mesothelioma lawyer, Donely believes that the companies may have destroyed some of these documents. As a result, it has made it difficult to prove that his mesothelioma diagnosis was caused by these corporations.

Donely is seeking an award in excess of $700,000, as well as punitive damages.
