Jury Awards Cancer Patient $55.5M

 

EL PASO, Texas (AP) - Jurors awarded $55.5 million to a cancer patient they determined had been exposed to asbestos in the mid-1970s while working in home construction.

Alfredo Hernandez Sr., 47, sued Kelly-Moore Paint Co. alleging the company's joint compound and wall texture products contained cancer-causing asbestos.

His attorney, Lisa Blue, contended Kelly-Moore continued to make the products even after learning of the potential health risks of asbestos. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration determined asbestos posed a health risk in the early 1970s.

Calls Thursday to Kelly-Moore's corporate headquarters in San Carlos, Calif., were referred to a corporate lawyer who didn't immediately return messages seeking comment.

Wednesday's $55 million jury award included $15 million in punitive damages against the company.

Blue said she is concerned that Hernandez, who has lost a lung to cancer, will die before Kelly-Moore exhausts its appeals.

"He's got a ton of medical bills that the insurance won't cover,'' she said.

The UA-767PV Plus Auto-Inflation monitor incorporates the latest technology for accurate measurements at home. The advanced features of this monitor inflates to the correct pressure each time a measurement is taken. The monitor stores the last 30 readings in memory and also displays average readings. The average reading feature automatically calculates the "average" of the total readings stored in memory. It has been clinically validated for accuracy (+/- 3mmHg and Pulse +/- 5%), so you can be confident that your readings are consistently correct. The measurement range is 20 mmHg to 280 mmHg and Pulse: 40 to 200 pulses/minute. Also included is an Irregular Heartbeat Feature that alerts the user and provides an accurate measurement even when an irregular heartbeat occurs. The UA-767PV can assist in the management of hypertension, improve patient compliance to treatment of high blood pressure, and be used as a tool in a preventative health management program. To obtain an accurate reading, it is important to use the correct cuff size. A cuff that is too small will result in a higher than expected reading and a cuff that is too large will result in a lower than expected reading. The UA-767PV includes a medium arm cuff size which has a range of 9.4" to 14.2".
