Drywall Worker Awarded $8.4 Million in Mesothelioma Case | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

A jury awarded $8.4 million to Jack Reynolds after they determined Hamilton Materials was responsible for Mr. Reynold’s mesothelioma stemming from exposure to asbestos while on the job.

Mr. Reynold’s, who served in the U.S. Navy for 10 years, worked for Hamilton Materials from 1964 to 1973, according to Newsguide.us. He retired in 1999 and was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2008. Mr. Reynolds claimed his nine years of exposure to “Red Dot,” a brand of asbestos while sanding, applying and cleaning up sheets of drywall led to his current bout with mesothelioma.

As an injury lawyer who’s represented clients detrimentally affected by asbestos and diagnosed with mesothelioma, I understand the dangers associated with asbestos and its terrible effects on people.

Here is a video illustrating the horrendous effects mesothelioma can have on people…

I applaud the jury for deciding in favor of Mr. Reynolds. Hopefully, he can put up a good fight in his battle with mesothelioma.
