The Mark Buttitta Case– the #1 Largest Compensatory Damages Verdict Ever Upheld in a Mesothelioma Case – Won by MesoLawyersCare Attorneys
The case of Mark Buttitta is a reminder that mesothelioma can affect anyone. At the age of 49, Mark was diagnosed with mesothelioma. The diagnosis came as a complete shock to Mark and his family. At the time, he was a rising star in the advertising industry, and with a loving wife and three children, Mark had everything to live for. Decades earlier, Mark was exposed to the invisible, deadly asbestos fibers from auto parts warehouses at which his father and brother worked and at which Mark worked during summer employment decades earlier. The New Jersey jury awarded $30.3 million in “compensatory damages”. The damages award included: $8 million for Mark’s pain and suffering; $2 million for Mrs. Buttitta’s loss of consortium (spousal damages); $9,281,660 for Mark’s loss of earning; $2,030,544 for loss of Mark’s services to his family; and $9 million for the loss of parental guidance and care suffered by Mr. Buttitta’s children. The verdict against a manufacturer of asbestos-containing auto parts was upheld on appeal and the damages award was fully paid to the Buttitta family, including interest. This jury verdict, won by MesoLawyersCare attorneys, remains the largest compensatory damages verdict ever upheld on appeal in a mesothelioma case in the United States.
The Bobbie Izell Case – the #1 Largest Punitive Damages Verdict Ever Upheld in a Mesothelioma Case – Won by MesoLawyersCare Attorneys
Bobbie Izell ran a construction business in California for 30 years. He was enjoying his hard-earned retirement when he was diagnosed with mesothelioma at the age of 85. Bobbie was exposed to an asbestos product that many people are familiar with. It was the joint compound or “spackling” compound, used to fill the seams in drywall. Most people don’t know that up until about 1978, most joint compound in the United States contained asbestos. Mr. Izell would often be present when his workers were sanding the joint compound, creating a “fog” of asbestos dust in the air. MesoLawyersCare attorneys took the case to trial and won against a large corporation who supplied asbestos fiber that went into the joint compound. The corporation appealed and the MesoLawyersCare attorneys won again. The California appellate court upheld a verdict in the amount of $6 million in compensatory damages and another $18 million in punitive damages – to punish the corporation and deter it and others from engaging in similar misconduct. The Bobbie Izell case, won by MesoLawyersCare lawyers, remains the largest punitive damages verdict ever upheld in a mesothelioma case in the United States.
