Alton worker awarded $16 million in asbestos lawsuit

Dec 5, 2001 | AP

A man who developed cancer from breathing asbestos is awarded 16 million dollars in his lawsuit against owners of a now-defunct glass container plant.

Fifty-eight-year-old James Crawford worked at the Owens-Illinois plant in Alton from 1965 until it closed in 1983.

Crawford's lawyers say the plant's owners -- Armstrong Contracting and Supply Company of Lancaster, Pennsylvania -- knew about the dangers of asbestos. But they say the company failed to take any action or warn employees about problems.

Crawford has a cancer of the lining around the lungs, and his attorneys say he is not expected to survive.

Asbestos was used in insulation around pipes in the part of the plant where glass was melted and poured into molds to make bottles and jars.
