Oregon widow files mesothelioma lawsuit

December 7th, 2006

The widow of an Oregon man who died of mesothelioma in August has filed a mesothelioma lawsuit against 109 defendant corporations. Connie Moore alleges that her husband’s mesothelioma diagnosis was the result of exposure to asbestos that occurred in the workplace and in the home.

Ronald Moore worked as a mechanic, bricklayer and laborer from 1961 until 1980, during which time he was exposed to asbestos, the mesothelioma lawsuit says. In addition, his father worked at a Ford factory from 1942 until 1948 where he also was exposed to asbestos. Moore’s widow says that the asbestos in the workplace combined with that brought home in his father’s clothes eventually led to his mesothelioma diagnosis.

Mesothelioma attorneys for Mrs. Moore say that the defendants failed to instruct their employees in proper safety and hygiene practices that could have prevented a mesothelioma diagnosis. Her mesothelioma lawsuit also contends that the companies may have destroyed documents that provide evidence of a link between her husband’s mesothelioma and asbestos exposure.

Moore received a mesothelioma diagnosis in May and was able to link his illness with his earlier asbestos exposure. In addition to the exposure that occurred in the workplace and at home, the mesothelioma lawsuit contends that his illness was caused by working with asbestos products during home and automotive repairs.
