  • Asbestos Medical Record Review & Outsourcing Services

Plaintiffs Alfred and Pamela Bennett have been awarded a total of $8.4 million in an asbestos lawsuit against Ford Motor Co. by a St. Louis jury.

According to the court records, Alfred was employed as a mechanic at Ford's Mercury and Lincoln automobile dealerships from the 1960s until the 1980s. During his employment, he was exposed to asbestos fibers while working with brakes, gaskets, clutches, and OEM replacement parts, which later led to pleural mesothelioma in his right lung. Following an eight-day trial, presided by Hon. Judge Christopher McGaugh, the Missouri Circuit Court for St. Louis City jury reached the verdict on Aug 22.

Initially, Al Bennett $5,725,000 was awarded in actual damages and $2 million in punitive damages. Pam Bennett was awarded $708,000 in actual damages, after finding that she sustained damage as a direct result of injury to her husband. In an order published on August 30, the verdict was reduced by $1,497,500 for set-offs. This resulted in $4,392,311.13 to Al Bennett in actual damages and $2 million in punitive damages. Pam Bennett's award was reduced to $543,188.87.
