A widow has filed an asbestos lawsuit against seventy four defendant companies following the death of her husband from an asbestos related disease, according to a recent report. The woman’s husband recently passed away as a result of lung cancer according to the report, and she claims that the death of her husband was wrongfully caused by exposure to asbestos.

The lawsuit claims that Robert Kruemmelbein Sr was diagnosed with the cancer in September of 2005. He passed away in December of 2006. His wife, Josephine, filed the lawsuit in Madison County Circuit Court last week.

The lawsuit states that Mr Kruemmelbein worked as a labourer at Duncan Foundry between 1950 and 1960. He is also said to have worked as a maintenance worker at Dow Chemical in 1960, and then as a machine operator at Owens- Illinois Glass from 1960 to 1993.

The plaintiff claims that her husband’s exposure and the related dangers should have been foreseen and avoided by the defendants. She goes on to state that her husband had to go to considerable expense due to his illness before he died, as well as suffering pain, anguish, and suffering.
