July 10, 2006: Boeing Workers Seek Medical Monitoring Claim for Beryllium-Related Injuries

Boeing workers are trying to recover the costs of medical monitoring without proving the actual physical injuries due to exposure to beryllium. The plaintiffs claim that they were subjected to beryllium while they were working on the manufacture of space shuttle parts, and they have asked the Mississippi Supreme Court to look for that state law that allows a cause of action for medical monitoring.

March 31, 2006: Beryllium Sensitization Not a Compensable “Injury”

There are workers at Marietta, Georgia Lockheed facilities (with their families) who filed for a class action lawsuit against the companies that produce or use beryllium products, claiming that they have been subjected to beryllium dust that caused personal injuries in the form of sub-clinical, cellular, and sub-cellular injuries. They also claim that some of the workers have been suffering from acute and chronic lung diseases, dermatologic illnesses, and chronic beryllium diseases or CBD. The federal court in Georgia stated that beryllium sensitization which can result to CBD, is not a compensable “injury” under the Georgia laws. They further explained that the symptoms defined by the plaintiffs have not reached the level of conditions or effects that Georgia courts or even other state courts, would consider as actionable.
