Bell Helicopters is going to launch an appeal against the decision of a Texas jury. The trial was held this week regarding the case of former Bell employee, Billy Dickson, whose attorney has sued the company for $8.8 million on the grounds of unsafe exposure to asbestos.

Bell hopes to reveal more information in the appeal. Mr. Dickson passed away in 2013. His attorney has sued 17 companies on the grounds of asbestos exposure, reports Biz Journals. According to Bell, his attorney settled with “most of those defendants out of court.” Bell further explains that the jury had no information on the other companies sued for Mr. Dickson’s asbestos exposure or that he had previous exposure before working at Bell. They hope to bring up these issues in the appeal.
