$3 Million Settlement for Asbestos Exposure Lawsuit


The family of a General Motors worker who died from job-related  asbestos exposure  was awarded $3 million by a New York State jury.

According to the  Tonawanda News , Gerald Suttner repaired valves manufactured by Crane Co. at the automaker’s GM Powertrain Facility for 36 years from 1964 to 1979. The job involved removal of  asbestos  gaskets - thus exposing him to visible asbestos dust.

Suttner was  diagnosed  with  pleural mesothelioma , a rare and deadly  cancer  that is caused by asbestos exposure, in 2010. One year later, at the age of 77, Suttner succumbed to  mesothelioma .

Suttner’s wife Joann and adult disabled daughter are the plaintiffs in the case against Crane Co.  The damages payout will consist of 4 percent from Crane and the rest from other liable entities, writes the  Tonawanda News .
