In 2002, Lungher was found to have bilateral interstitial fibrosis in his mid and lower lung zones with irregular linear interstitial markings, which were indicative of previous occupational asbestos exposure and diagnostic of asbestosis.
Lungher later died of asbestos-related lung cancer on January 3, 2007 in Concord, N.C., while his asbestos lawsuit was still ongoing.
His surviving family was a wife, Linda.
Some of the major defendants from Lungher’s asbestos lawsuit were W.R. Grace & Company, Garlock, Inc., Flintkote, and Westinghouse Electric Corporation.
Lungher also had a workers compensation claim against Greensboro Electric Company.
North Carolina asbestos lawyer Tom Lamb represented this Concord, N.C. journeyman electrician in an asbestosis lawsuit — as well as the related N.C. workers compensation claim — which resulted in significant settlements obtained from the asbestos companies and the responsible employer.
Our law firm has gotten legal compensation for many asbestos clients with cases involving asbestosis, lung cancer, or mesothelioma caused by their past exposure to asbestos containing materials which they worked with or around at various types of N.C. work sites all across the state.
