The son of a former auto laborer is suing dozens of companies, alleging their asbestos-containing products caused his father's lung disease and death.
Jeffrey T. Scibor, as administrator for Frank L. Scibor, filed a lawsuit March 11 in Cook County Circuit Court against A.W. Chesterton Co., H.B. Fuller Co., Union Carbide Corp., and more than 20 other companies.
According to the complaint, Frank was exposed to asbestos between 1969 and 2013, during which time he worked as an auto mechanic and auto body technician. Scibor alleges his father was exposed to the defendants' products and that led Frank to develop lung cancer, which resulted in his May 30, 2013 death.
Scibor claims the defendants knew or should have known their products contained asbestos and would result in physical harm, and failed to provide adequate warnings about the dangers of asbestos exposure.
He is represented by attorney Michael J. Adair of Cooney & Conway in Chicago.
Cook County Circuit Court case number: 2015L002477.
