Texas Family Files Asbestos Lawsuit Against Chevron

Families that have been impacted by mesothelioma, asbestosis, or other asbestos-related diseases face many challenges. Though immediate attention must be focused on getting the best medical treatment available, there must also be acknowledgement that the condition may have been caused by negligence on the part of an employer or asbestos company. Such is the case in a lawsuit recently filed in Jefferson County District Court in Texas. Margaret Stephens and her son Gary Stephens are suing petroleum giant Chevron, seeking both compensation for the damages that they have suffered and justice on behalf of their husband and father Charles Stephens, who recently died after a long battle with asbestosis.

Asbestosis is a painful and deadly condition that is caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a mineral that was widely used in industrial and construction applications during the 20th century because of its strength and heat resistance. Though the public was made aware that asbestos is a carcinogenic material in the 1970s and 1980s, many companies that used asbestos in their day-to-day operations knew of its dangers decades earlier, but chose to suppress the information in order to continue using the inexpensive material. Those companies put profits over the health and lives of people, and as a result, tens of thousands have been sickened and died.

The case of Charles Stephens is similar to many others that have been filed on behalf of asbestos victims. Chevron is accused of negligence in having failed to provide Stephens with the warning or protections that he needed, and in doing so being responsible for his sickness and death. Many families have been forced to file wrongful death lawsuits after their loved ones have died, seeking compensation for medical expenses, lost support, funeral and burial expenses, as well as the pain and suffering that the asbestos victim suffered. Margaret and Gary are also aware that during his years working at Chevron, Charles often came home with asbestos dust on his work clothes, raising the specter of their own exposure to the toxic material, and risk for being diagnose with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease in the future.

If you or someone you love has been sickened as a result of exposure to asbestos, you may have the right to file a mesothelioma or asbestos lawsuit against those responsible.
