What’s the problem?
October 17, 2016 – A special administrator of the estate of Stanley Adams filed the complaint against Union Pacific, accusing the company of negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.
According to the lawsuit, during Stanley Adams’ employment with the defendant from 1974 to 2009, he was exposed to toxic substances including asbestos, cigarette smoke and diesel fumes that caused him to develop renal cancer.
Adams died from complications of the disease on February 15, 2015, after suffering great pain, mental anguish, loss of income and medical expenses, according to the lawsuit.
Plaintiff blames Union Pacific for the death because the company was allegedly negligent for failing to provide a safe and adequate workplace to protect Adams.
The complaint was filed in St. Clair County Circuit Court (case# 16-L-488) on Sept. 14, 2016. The administrator is seeking a trial by jury and compensation in excess of $50,000, plus the cost of the lawsuit.
