The Cutting-Edge of Asbestos Litigation
Kazan Law is at the cutting-edge of asbestos litigation, securing milestone mesothelioma verdicts for clients residing all over the United States. Recently in 2018, Kazan Law won $117 million for its client in a landmark talc baby powder mesothelioma case. In Stephen and Kendra Lanzo v. Johnson & Johnson Consumer, Inc. and Imerys Talc America, Inc., the jury found that Johnson’s Baby Powder contained asbestos, and that Johnson & Johnson Consumer, Inc. and its supplier Imerys Talc America, Inc. failed to adequately warn consumers of this fact. Further, the jury found that Johnson & Johnson had a safer alternative design in cornstarch. In this case, the jury awarded Kazan Law’s client $37 million in compensatory damages and $80 million in punitive damages.
In 2016, Kazan Law secured a significant victory for victims of secondary asbestos exposure. In Kesner v. Superior Court (Pneumo Abex, LLC), the Supreme Court of California ruled that companies that exposed workers to asbestos could be held liable for exposing other people living in a worker’s home who become sick from asbestos the worker unknowingly brought into the home. These two cases, and many others tried by Kazan Law over the history of the firm, demonstrate Kazan Law’s dedication and excellence in the asbestos litigation space.
