Joe Babington and Philip Mahoney obtain dismissal for products liability client

A Helmsing Leach team, led by partners Joe Babington and Philip Mahoney, recently obtained a dismissal, with prejudice, of the firm’s client from a products liability wrongful death and personal injury case arising out of injuries allegedly caused by lengthy exposure to asbestos contained in a talcum powder product made by the firm’s client. The case was pending in Jefferson County Circuit Court in Birmingham, Ala. The dismissal occurred after cross-examination of several of the plaintiff’s liability experts during the expert discovery phase of the case.
