Here at Kazan Law, when we win a wrongful death asbestos case for our clients we see it primarily as a win for an individual family who has suffered an immense tragic loss. But we also see it as a potential win for all asbestos cases. Although every asbestos case is unique, they all share some essential similar components. In this way a successful verdict in one asbestos case strengthens the chance that other asbestos cases will also be successful and result in substantial financial compensation for the victims of malicious asbestos exposure.
We are pleased that Kazan Law’s recent successful verdict in an asbestos wrongful death suit for the family of deceased victim Gordon Bankhead was chosen to be featured in the most recent edition of VerdictSearch. In this way, the experience, knowledge and hard work of Kazan Law partner David McClain and the rest of the team in this asbestos wrongful death case will be amplified and provide support for future asbestos cases.
VerdictSearch is the leading provider of verdict and settlement information. It is a legal research tool that searches a comprehensive database of all verdicts and settlements in the U.S. In addition to being a database, for the the legal profession and insurance industry, VerdictSearch is used as reference by publications that include The New York Times and The National Law Journal.
VerdictSearch’s California edition summary of the Bankhead asbestos wrongful death case and the jury awards to our clients states, “The jury found that the amount of damages suffered by the decedent’s family totaled $11 million, which included $6 million the decedent’s wife’s damages, and $2.5 million to daughter(s). Since Pneumo Abex was found 30 percent at fault in the personal injury lawsuit, it will have to pay $3.3 million, not including costs and interest.”
We are proud that our success in winning the Bankhead family’s asbestos wrongful death case was chosen to be part of this important law verdict database so it will resonate for years to come.
