Exposing Liability For Harm To Former NWA Employees With Mesothelioma

Northwest Airlines (NWA), founded in 1926, was once a prominent employer in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and in other Minnesota locations such as Duluth. Courts have found this airline liable for harm to workers who were exposed to asbestos in airplane hangars and other facilities under the company’s authority. Although Northwest Airlines ultimately merged with Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines in 2008, liability for negligence to former NWA workers with mesothelioma has not gone away. Delta Air Lines is still responsible.
