Recently, a New York jury found Ford Motor Company guilty of exposing Arthur H. Juni, Jr. to asbestos, but not before he was killed by the fatal disease caused by that exposure. Diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2012, Juni was 74 years old when he passed away on March 15, 2014. The verdict was returned on May 30, 2014.
Asbestos is nothing to be messed with. Although the substance was handled in many different trades and used within thousands of products, if the microscopic fibers are inhaled by an individual, deadly diseases can develop over time.
