A Richland county jury returned a $38 million dollar verdict in a case on behalf of a worker exposed to asbestos at the Carolina Eastman plant outside of Columbia. In addition to trial verdicts, Theile has helped secure millions of dollars in settlements for deserving families torn apart by asbestos exposure.


Cancer-causing asbestos was present in makeup and body powders.


Another South Carolina jury returned a $14 million dollar verdict on behalf of a worker in a Celanese plant. Despite appeals, the verdict was affirmed by the South Carolina Court of Appeals and by the South Carolina Supreme Court. Justice John Few of the South Carolina Supreme Court used Theile’s case to write the seminal judicial opinion on the legal concept of statutory employer, an issue that arises frequently during asbestos litigation. The opinion was extremely favorable to working men and women.


Plaintiff's husband worked as an instrument technician and his work regularly required him to be within close proximity to co-workers' removal of gaskets and packing from valves manufactured by various companies often included asbestos. The Plaintiff's husband was diagnosed with asbestos-related mesothelioma and ultimately died. Plaintiff's filed the products liability action against the manufacturer and numerous co-defendants asserting claims for wrongful death, survival, and loss of consortium based on theories of relief that included negligence, breach of implied warranty, and strict liability.


Won for the wife of an industrial technician who succumbed to mesothelioma.


A case filed on behalf of a Duke employee in Anderson, South Carolina resulted in a $5.2 million dollar verdict.


Plaintiff worked as an inspector, in close proximity to asbestos gaskets and later developed mesothelioma. Plaintiff presented evidence of both the standard of care and the manufacturers' deviation from the standard because the manufacturers admitted that when plaintiff worked as an inspector, they never provided warnings to their customers or users, they never applied warning labels to their products, and they did not conduct any testing to determine whether maintenance activities would liberate asbestos fibers into the air. Plaintiff sued for wrongful death, survival and loss of consortium.


A Greenville jury returned a $700,000 verdict in a mesothelioma case.


A case filed in Spartanburg, South Carolina on behalf of a man working in industrial plants, resulted in a $300,000 trial verdict. The defense appealed the verdict which was upheld by the South Carolina Court of Appeals in a 47 page opinion which laid out the law on virtually every major legal issue to be raised in a mesothelioma trial.
