Kentucky Widow Sues 49 Companies over Asbestos Death

CHARLESTON – A Greenup (KY) woman has filed an asbestos-related suit against 49 defendant corporations who allegedly exposed her husband to asbestos and thus causing him to develop lung cancer before his death.

The suit was filed by Mary L. Davis, the widow of Jack Colvin Davis, on February 2 in Kanawha Circuit Court. According to the complaint, Jack Colvin Davis was diagnosed with asbestos-related lung cancer on December 28, 2010.

The plaintiff says the defendant companies exposed her husband to asbestos-contaminated products throughout his career as a carpenter and laborer.

The lawsuit states that the companies didn’t warn Jack Davis regarding the risks associated with asbestos exposure.

The defendant companies are blamed for negligence, contaminating buildings and violating expressed warranty.

Mary Davis is expecting a trail to settle all the issues involved in the complaint. The case will be presided over by a visiting judge.
