A man worked for NewPort News Shipbuilding for 37 years. During this time, he worked with asbestos-containing products. The products in question were gaskets and sheet packing manufactured by John Crane, Inc. Plaintiff filed claims alleging that the manufacturer was negligent in failing to warn of the dangers of asbestos exposure and that the manufacturer was strictly liable for selling an unreasonably dangerous product without warnings. The man was diagnosed with mesothelioma and he died a year following this diagnosis. The jury returned a verdict for $9.18 million dollars.
