Mesothelioma Victim v. Window Glazing Manufacturer and Chemical Company

Waters Kraus Paul & Siegel attorneys reached a confidential settlement for the wife of a Rhode Island man who died of mesothelioma cancer after exposure to window glazing compound contaminated with asbestos. The settlement followed a $20 million compensatory damages verdict in March 2023.

The plaintiff had been a temporary worker at a mill in East Woodstock, Connecticut, on two occasions in the early 1960s, scraping and removing dried and dusty window putty from window frames while replacing hundreds of windows. The man died in 2020 at age 76, just 18 months after he was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a deadly form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.
