Jury Awards Covil Corp Worker's Family $32.7M

  • Asbestos Medical Record Review & Outsourcing Services

In one of the state’s largest mesothelioma verdicts, a North Carolina jury awarded the estate of an erstwhile worker $32.7 million following a five-day trial in October. Recently, the defendant’s appeal to overturn the verdict was denied.

Franklin Finch started working at a Firestone tire facility in Wilson, North Carolina in 1975 and worked there until 1995. During his employment, he worked in the company’s curing room changing tire molds on asbestos-containing platen insulators, gaskets, and other replacement parts. According to Jessica Dean of Dean Omar & Branham LLP, an attorney for Finch, the exposure to asbestos-containing insulation supplied by company Covil Corp. was found responsible for damages. Mr. Finch was diagnosed with mesothelioma and succumbed to the disease before the trial at the age of 78.

The case is Finch v. Covil Corp., case number 1:16-cv-01077, in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.
