DALLAS (PRWEB) October 11, 2012

Last year, Baron and Budd, a Dallas-based mesothelioma law firm, announced a $9 million mesothelioma verdict against Dow Chemical. The lawsuit was brought on behalf of Robert Henderson, deceased, his wife Tanya Henderson and daughters Adrienna and Za'Quoia. Baron and Budd mesothelioma attorneys John Langdoc and Alana Kalantzakis, represented the family at trial and proved that Mr. Henderson’s exposure to asbestos while working at the Dow Chemical facility resulted in his mesothelioma (Henderson v. Dow Chemical Co., Dallas County District Court, No. 10-07003).

Much of Mr. Henderson’s career was spend working around asbestos materials. Working as a contract employee for Dow Chemical, he was exposed as a bystander to Dow insulators containing asbestos. Dow Chemical, one of the biggest chemical manufacturing plants in the world, employs thousands of workers who may have been exposed to asbestos as bystanders through the air.

"We verified that Mr. Henderson was one of many workers who was exposed to asbestos at Dow Chemical and later came down with an asbestos cancer," said John Langdoc. "Dow knew workers could get cancer."
