BPB Represents Widow in Mesothelioma Case, Gets $11.5 Million Verdict

Dec 30, 2015

A Missouri jury awarded our client, a deceased Navy veteran’s widow, $11.5 million in an asbestos cancer case.

Our firm was proud to have represented Jeanette Poage, the widow of a Navy veteran who allegedly was exposed to asbestos during his time in the military. Poage’s husband passed away in 2013 from mesothelioma lung cancer.

During the 1950s, he worked as a machinist’s mate in the Navy. The lawsuit brought by BCH on behalf of Poage’s widow alleged that his mesothelioma was the direct result of asbestos exposure during this time. The defendant, Stamford, Connecticuit-based Crane Co., is now required to pay $1.5 million in compensatory damages and $10 million in punitive damages.

The trial lasted two weeks. Robert Cowan and Aaron Heckaman represented Mrs. Poage as lead counsel. For more information, see the press release.
