Attorney Ross Stomel of Shrader & Associates, LLP Settles Multi-Million Dollar Wrongful Death Case by Championing Family of Mesothelioma Victim

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 4, 2011) - The nationally recognized mesothelioma law firm of Shrader & Associates, LLP is pleased to announce a confidential multi-million dollar settlement on behalf of a Riverside, California family against several manufacturers of asbestos-containing products.

The victim was exposed to asbestos from an asbestos-manufacturing plant several miles upwind from his residence. He was also exposed to asbestos during his employment at a manufacturing plant.

On April 4, CertainTeed Corporation, Union Carbide Corporation, and Amcord Inc. dba Riverside Cement Company, settled with the plaintiffs on the eve of trial.

Ross Stomel and Robert Shuttlesworth from Shrader & Associates, LLP represented the Betancur family.

"This was a hard fought case and we are happy with the outcome for this wonderful family," said Ross Stomel, Partner, Shrader & Associates, LLP.

"Several other aspects of this case bear discussing," he said. "For example, this was a wrongful death suit on behalf of the mesothelioma victim's family, rather than the victim himself. The case was previously turned down by several firms for that reason and due to the victim's age (82 yrs. old), but at Shrader & Associates, LLP, we pride ourselves on helping families. It was a lot of hard work, and never giving up, but this family deserved justice. The result speaks for itself," he stated.

Shrader & Associates, LLP is a national litigation firm that handle asbestos cases all across the United States. Their attorneys have successfully represented mesothelioma victims and their families across the United States, recovering more than $100 million in compensation for their damages.
