A Texas woman is suing over claims her husband died from exposure to carcinogenic chemicals at work.

Susie Harmon, individually and as personal representative of the estate of Clifford Dale Harmon, deceased, and Corey Dale Harmon and Caleb Dale Harmon, the surviving children of Clifford Dale Harmon, deceased, filed a lawsuit Nov. 21, 2014, in Jefferson County District Court against CRC Industries Inc., et al, citing products liability.

According to the complaint, for many years, Clifford Dale Harmon was employed as an instrument technician and contractor at the premises of Chevron USA, Exxon-Mobil and other companies, where he was exposed to carcinogenic chemicals, including trichloroethylene, in products produced by Dow Chemical Company, Able Fastener Inc., and several other companies. The complaint states Harmon developed and died from kidney cancer due to this exposure.

The plaintiffs seek survival damages. They are represented by attorney Darren L. Brown of Provost Umphrey Law Firm in Beaumont.
