Asbestos Product Manufacturer Held Responsible for Substantially Contributing to a Local Tennessee Industrial Mechanic’s Mesothelioma and Death.
Jimmy Davis was a career industrial maintenance mechanic for Stauffer Chemical in Tennessee. From 1970 to 1978, Mr. Davis regularly worked with Bondstrand asbestos pipe and fittings manufactured by Ameron International Corp. On a weekly basis, he cut and ground the products creating asbestos dust. Diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2016, Mr. Davis died within 18 months. On Sept. 19, 2019, a Maury County jury handed down a verdict of $2,071,216.21 in favor of plaintiffs. The jury assigned 13% liability to Ameron. The jury found the pipe manufacturer violated federal regulations in the manufacturing and labeling of Bondstrand pipe, and the company’s defective and unreasonably dangerous products were substantial causes of Mr. Davis mesothelioma and death.
