Bailey Cowan Heckaman PLLC is filing Mesothelioma and lung cancer cases in Oklahoma on behalf of victims and families devastated by the asbestos exposure.
The firm’s lawsuit was filed in Oklahoma County District Court on behalf of a Wilson, OK man and his wife in November 2019. Partner Aaron Heckaman and Attorney Alina Gregory, both of whom have extensive experience litigating asbestos cases across the country, will serve as lead attorneys on the case.
The lawsuit alleges:
- The man was diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma, a fatal form of lung cancer caused by asbestos fibers, in September 2019 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma;
- The man’s mesothelioma was caused by his repeated exposure to asbestos through his work as a roustabout on a drilling rig in Ratliff City and an oil field in Wilson, OK, as a barber, as a pulling unit rig worker, and as an employee at the Uniroyal tire manufacturing plant in Ardmore, OK, where he worked for over 30 years;
- During his many years working in these industries, the man was exposed to and worked with asbestos, products containing asbestos, and / or equipment requiring the use of asbestos or asbestos products.
The lawsuit, which names dozens of defendants, calls attention to the man’s long-term use of manufacturing and industrial equipment, including products manufactured or sold by Michelin, McNeil (Ohio) Corporation, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Inc. and others.
The suit further alleges these corporations were negligent in failing to warn the man about dangers associated with asbestos exposure, provide information and products that would keep him reasonably safe from exposure risks, and design and manufacture products or equipment utilizing alternative materials safer than asbestos, among other claims – despite knowing the dangers associated with asbestos fibers.
