DALLAS (PRWEB) November 22, 2013
Baron and Budd was recognized last week by legal publication Texas Lawyer for a $9 million verdict the firm achieved against Dow Chemical. The event took place Nov. 12 during the publication’s Inaugural Verdicts Hall of Fame reception and dinner in Dallas.
Mesothelioma lawyers at Baron and Budd achieved the verdict in 2011 in the case Henderson v. Dow Chemical (Dallas County District Court, No. 10-07003). The verdict was selected as one of the top verdicts of 2010-2012 as reported by Texas Lawyer and Verdict Search. The lawsuit was originally filed on behalf of Mr. Henderson, a Dow Chemical worker who passed away from mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos, which Mr. Henderson encountered during his work at the company's Freeport, Texas chemical plant.
“Mesothelioma is a devastating illness,” said Russell Budd at Baron & Budd. "We are honored whenever our work results in justice for families that have endured so much."
Baron & Budd has been successfully handling mesothelioma lawsuits for more than 35 years. In just the past three years, the firm’s mesothelioma lawyers have won several record verdicts for mesothelioma patients. Recently, the firm achieved one of the most significant mesothelioma verdicts in the nation and California as well as the top two toxic exposure verdicts in Texas in 2011. (Henderson v. Dow Chemical, Dallas County District Court, No. 10-07003; Gensler v. Hercules, Inc., Civil District Court of Dallas County, No. DC10-08454-D.)
