Nederland resident Nelda Humble, the widow of Keltus Humble, has filed an asbestos suit against Goodrich Corp. and Michelin North America.

The suit was filed Nov. 9 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, Keltus Humble was employed by B.F. Goodrich in Jefferson County, where he was exposed to asbestos dust and fibers.

“As a result of such exposure, Herbert Carmon developed an asbestos related disease, pleural disease and mesothelioma/lung cancer, from which she died a painful and terrible death on Sept. 9, 2012,” the suit states.

The suit accuses the defendants of negligently failing to warn employees of the dangerous of asbestos.

The plaintiff is suing for exemplary damages.

Beaumont attorney Keith Hyde of the Provost Umphrey Law Firm represents her.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. A193-582
