Landmark Asbestos Verdict: $250 Million

The firm has secured several asbestos verdicts and mesothelioma settlements on behalf of our clients. One landmark verdict of $250 million was awarded to Roby Whittington, a retired steel worker from Indiana. Roby was diagnosed with mesothelioma after working at U.S. Steel for 30 years. This verdict stands as the largest asbestos verdict against a single defendant in the history of the litigation.

Shareholder Perry Browder, who represented Roby, said the verdict sent an important message to large corporations that they will be held accountable for their negligent decisions to use asbestos, despite knowing the dangers. The message from that mesothelioma settlement is a message the firm continues to send today.
