Chevron USA hit with asbestos suit, Provost Umphrey representing plaintiffs

By David Yates | Feb 21, 2019

BEAUMONT – The family of Jimmy Thomas Jr. have filed an asbestos suit against Chevron USA.

The suit, which seeks punitive damages, was filed Feb. 8 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the petition, Thomas was exposed to asbestos dust and fibers during his employment with Chevron.

The suit does not give dates of employment or state what work Thomas performed.

As a result of Thomas’ alleged exposure, he developed lung cancer, from which “he died a painful and terrible death” on Nov. 14, 2018, the suit states.

The suit alleges Chevron knew about the dangers of asbestos and still allowed employees, such as Thomas, to work with asbestos products.

The plaintiffs are represented by Provost Umphrey attorney Keith Hyde.

Judge Kent Walston, 58th District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. A-203317
