A man living in Virginia recently filed a suit against his former employers claiming asbestos exposure.

As a result of the exposure while at work, the man claims that he developed a fatal asbestos-related illness.

Plaintiff Claims Workplace Exposure

Larry Wilbur Hacker and his wife Leslie have filed a suit against Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company, along with several other businesses.

The couple is demanding that a properly impaneled jury hear the case.

The suit claims that Hacker was exposed to asbestos while employed with the companies and as a result has suffered physically and emotionally.

Suit Claims

The suit claims that the companies knowingly subjected Hacker to the harmful substance while he was employed by them.

The companies allegedly manufactured, designed and sold products that contained asbestos.

“Hacker was unaware of the hazards and defects in the asbestos-containing products of the defendants, which made them unsafe for purposes of manipulation and installation,” says the suit.

Couple Seeks Compensation

The couple is reportedly seeking compensation for medical expenses and lost earnings.

They are also hoping to be reimbursed for punitive and exemplary damages.
