On April 14, 2021, Belluck & Fox, LLP began jury selection in Saratoga County, New York, for the first mesothelioma case to go to trial in New York since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Client Matthew Gautheir was in his 30s and had a developmental disability. His father worked at a truck engine service center where he regularly came into contact with asbestos engine gaskets. Unfortunately, the asbestos was brought home from work on his clothing and his son Matthew was diagnosed with mesothelioma. Although Matthew passed away just before his trial, his parents were committed to pushing forward with the case. Belluck & Fox, LLP settled the case with the last defendant on April 15, 2021.

“Every person with mesothelioma deserves justice,” attorney Joe Belluck said of the case, “From the start of this case until the last settlement, we believed that Matthew’s mesothelioma was caused by his father’s work with engine gaskets and his father was not properly warned of the dangers of working with asbestos. We are honored to have represented Matthew and his parents.”
