Rich worked for many years as a millwright at an Ohio plant owned by one of the largest multi-national corporations in the world.
He was exposed to asbestos insulation products even though OSHA laws requiring the company to protect him from asbestos had been in effect for years.
The company knowingly exposed him without giving him the warnings and protections required by federal law.
McDermott-Hickey filed suit on behalf of Rich and retained the top experts in the field to review his case.
The company filed a Motion for Summary Judgement asking the court to dismiss Rich's case. McDermott & Hickey successfully defeated the company's attempt to dodge responsibility.
