1.5 Million Dollar Mesothelioma Verdict Involving Union Carbide
By: chris.placitella @ Oct 12, 2011
A Mississippi jury handed down $1,000,000 actual damage verdict with a 25% apportionment attributed to UCC for Mr. Russell E. Nix, in Jones County, MS. Mr. Nix was exposed to Union Carbide’s drilling muds in the 1980’s. UCC was the sole remaining Defendant at the time of trial.
The jury also awarded Mr. Nix $500 ,000 in punitive damages, as well as attorneys fees and costs.
Congratulations to my friends Grant Hedgepeth, Dawn Smith and James C. Ferrell who represented Mr Nix in his mesothelioma case.
