8: Rhoda & Bobby Evans- Record Asbestos Lawsuit – $200 M
In one of the biggest ever asbestos lawsuit claim, A Los Angeles jury granted over $200 million in consolidated compensatory and reformatory harms to a 71-year-old lady Bobby Evans experiencing mesothelioma and her family. Mrs. Evans contracted mesothelioma from the asbestos dust that her better half brought home each day from his work uniform amid the mid-1970s. The aggregate of the mesothelioma settlement amount was $208,821,015.
At the time, Mr. Evans was a representative of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and his standard occupation obligations included cutting asbestos concrete pipe for the City and County of Los Angeles. Neither Mrs. Evans nor Mr. Evans was aware of the asbestos hazard at the time. This victory happened because of personal injury claims through the mesothelioma lawsuit.
