Asbestos & Mesothelioma
State Supreme Court affirms verdict in favor of an industrial contract worker’s family who was represented by SGB
A Washington state appeals court recently upheld a record-setting $16.67 million jury verdict in favor of Sherrie Holdsworth. Mrs. Holdsworth is the widow of Kevan Holdsworth, who died in 2019 of mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos from products sold by Scapa Waycross, Inc. The verdict for Mrs. Holdsworth, who was represented by attorneys Luke Garrett and Tom Breen of Schroeter Goldmark & Bender, is the highest asbestos verdict ever in King County, and the second largest ever in Washington.
Kevan Holdsworth's life was cut short because of one company's failure to warn workers about its hazardous products.
Schroeter Goldmark & Bender’s trial team of Craig Sims and Kaitlin Wright obtained a $4,000,000 jury verdict in a mesothelioma case against ExxonMobil Oil Corporation yesterday in King County Superior Court.
For those who claim that Washington juries are reluctant to provide large verdicts on behalf of those suffering from mesothelioma, it's time to eliminate that myth.
