Re: Asbestos Injuries
Paying people with less serious injuries contrasts sharply with the outcome of court cases over asbestos exposure, in which more than 85% of asbestos damages are paid to those with cancer, according to both plaintiffs’ and defense lawyers.
Others have found what they believe are illegitimate claims. Garlock Sealing Technologies LLC, a New York-based gasket maker, paid almost $10 million in court damages in 2008 to three plaintiffs whose family members died as a result of asbestos injuries. The plaintiffs later tried to recover additional damages from various trusts, according to court filings, which isn’t illegal but which Garlock felt was double-dipping. “We found the plaintiffs were pursuing claims we had already paid,” says Garlock’s attorney Garland Cassada, who alerted the trusts and thus averted any double payments for the same claim.

There is a long latency for mesothelioma or asbestos to develop as well as asbestos injury.
