Two More Asbestos Lawsuits Filed in Cook County Circuit Court

Chicago, IL – Rocky Saadeh, an Illinois resident, is suing a number of companies as the special administratrix of deceased Hosni Saadeh’s estate. MS. Saadeh has filed a lawsuit on 18th November in the Circuit Court of Cook County. More than 30 companies have been named in the suit as defendants.

According to the suit, Hosni Saadeh developed deadly lung cancer because of his constant exposure to hazardous asbestos fibres and dust all through his employment in different capacities. Hosni Saadeh worked as a maintenance mechanic, a machinist, and several other capacities between 1964 and 1985, the suit indicates.

According to the plaintiff, Hosni Saadeh died from asbestos-related lung cancer in 2012 March because of his ingesting, breathing in, or absorbing microscopic asbestos fibres releasing from various products sold or produced by the companies named as defendants in Rocky Saadeh’s lawsuit.

Ms. Saadeh is asking for compensatory damages of at least $50000. Chicago attorney Timothy Martin will represent her in the legal fight.

In another case, a retired crane operator has filed a suit alleging that repeated asbestos exposure during his job caused him to develop malignant mesothelioma, a rare but terminal cancer of the mesothelium.

James C Perry is suing several companies including A W Chesterton in the Circuit Court of Cook County in Chicago, Illinois. Perry filed her asbestos lawsuit on 30th October, 2012 seeking damages from the defendant companies.

According to the complaint, Perry worked in different capacities, such as crane operator, between 1953 and 1995. The plaintiff says during this period he was continuously exposed to a number of products containing asbestos. These products were made, marketed, supplied, distributed or used by the defendant companies, Perry says.

Perry argues that the defendant companies were negligent in exposing him to a known cancer-causing mineral. The companies definitely knew or should’ve known that asbestos is a dangerous mineral that can cause deadly injuries such as cancer, Perry claims. On 28th October, Perry came to know that he had developed malignant mesothelioma because of his regular exposure to the defendants’ asbestos products, according to the suit. Mesothelioma is an incurable disease. It kills the victims typically within a year after the diagnosis, experts say.

James C Perry is asking for an unspecified amount in damages. David Barrett, an attorney with law firm ‘Cooney and Conway,’ will represent him in his legal fight for justice.
