BELLEVILLE – A laborer alleges asbestos exposure caused him to develop lung cancer.

Billy Ray filed a complaint on Sept. 20 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Albany International Corp., ANCO Insulations Inc., Armstrong Pumps Inc., Arvinmeritor Inc., et al. alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, Ray alleges that between 1976 and 2009, he worked for various locations and was exposed to and inhaled, ingested or otherwise absorbed large amounts of asbestos fibers emanating from the defendants' products. His alleged exposure led to him to being diagnosed with lung cancer on Dec. 6, 2016. 

The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to provide any or adequate warnings on the products of the dangers of inhaling, ingesting or otherwise absorbing the asbestos fibers contained in them.

The plaintiff seeks an award for compensatory, punitive and exemplary damages in amount of more than $50,000. He is represented by Randy L. Gori of Gori, Julian & Associates PC in Edwardsville.
