Baron and Budd Achieves Top Two 2011 Product Liability Verdicts in Texas
DALLAS –(May 24, 2012) –Baron and Budd is being recognized by legal publication Texas Lawyer for achieving the top two 2011 product liability verdicts in Texas. Baron and Budd attorney John Langdoc headed trial efforts in both verdicts, which were achieved on behalf of Texas mesothelioma patients and their families. The full list of verdicts appears in the 2011 edition of Texas Lawyer’s Top TX Verdicts.
“Wow," said John Langdoc, mesothelioma attorney at Baron and Budd. “We work hard on every one of our cases. It is neat to see that the hard work on behalf of some great families resulted in the top defective product verdicts in Texas."
Henderson v. Dow Chemical was selected as the number one Texas product liability verdict in 2011. This mesothelioma lawsuit was filed on behalf of Mr. Henderson, deceased, his wife and two daughters. The jury awarded the Hendersons $9 million in the case. Attorneys John Langdoc and Alana Kalantzakis represented the family at trial.
Gensler v. Hercules, Inc. was selected as the second highest Texas product liability verdict in 2011 and is believed to be the first asbestos cancer verdict reached against Hercules for asbestos exposure at Dow Chemical. The mesothelioma lawsuit was brought on behalf of the late Mr. Gensler and his widow. The jury awarded Mr. Gensler $8.4 million. Attorneys John Langdoc and Alana Kalantzakis represented the family at trial.
Baron and Budd was one of the first law firms to successfully handle a mesothelioma lawsuit in the 1970s and is still fighting for the rights of mesothelioma patients today. Over the years, the firm has achieved more than 100 successful verdicts for mesothelioma clients and even defended the ability of Texas asbestos claimants to bring a second lawsuit for additional health issues that may have developed later as a result of asbestos exposure.
