The Holloway, Eureka, Asbestos & Mesothelioma case documents what many industrial plant employees (e.g., vacuum cleaner factory worker) and others may face today – past potential direct and secondary exposure to asbestos and mesothelioma. The court ruled on the motion.
A brief summary of the facts include:
- According to this claim, defendant sold and delivered asbestos-containing insulation to the Eureka vacuum-cleaner factory in Bloomington, Illinois, either before or during the time plaintiff worked in the factory, and the insulation was installed on steam pipes throughout the factory.
- Plaintiff accused defendant of negligence in that this product, the insulation, was unaccompanied by any warning—or the product was too dangerous to sell even with a warning.
- She alleged that from 1962 to 1976, when she worked in the Eureka factory, she unknowingly breathed asbestos fibers from the pipe-covering insulation and that, after a latency period, these fibers, trapped in her lungs, caused her to develop asbestosis.
