Court: Boeing had no 'actual knowledge' of asbestos hazards

There is no longer any doubt that asbestos is a dangerous fiber and has been directly linked to causing cancer. However, for decades, companies were able to get away with claiming ignorance about the toxicity of asbestos and ended up putting many workers in danger. Now 10, 20 or even 50 years later, victims of exposure to asbestos are beginning to show symptoms of mesothelioma, asbestosis and other illnesses caused by inhalation of asbestos.

Terminally ill asbestos worker seeks compensation

Workers exposed to harsh chemicals for a number of years can often suffer from serious illness as a result of that exposure. One such worker, a 59-year-old man in Cornwall, U.K., was been diagnosed with mesothelioma last summer and given a maximum of six months to live. Chemotherapy treatments have helped to keep the cancer at bay, though have also left him house bound and weak.

Widow of mesothelioma victim has message: Don't give up

After watching her husband suffer through mesothelioma before passing away, a widow finally won her fight against the company responsible for his death. Despite the lengthy and difficult legal process she faced, the woman is urging other victims and their families to never give up in the fight against negligent companies when it comes to asbestos exposure.

If asbestos is found, work should stop

Too often, workers have been exposed to asbestos without their knowledge. Years later, these same workers may learn that they have developed a deadly form of cancer that is the result of breathing in asbestos fibers. Going back and tracking employment to uncover possible exposure sources can be difficult, but it is crucial if a person chooses to pursue compensation from negligent property owners.

Man dies from asbestos-related disease

People can suffer from a number of devastating and fatal diseases after being exposed to asbestos. Besides mesothelioma, which is a cancer of the linings of the lungs, people can also suffer from asbestosis, lung cancers and pleural plaque. Many of these diseases are very aggressive. In the event that a person dies from an asbestos-related disease, families may be able to file a wrongful death against the party responsible for exposure.

New method for dealing with underground asbestos concrete pipe

A Florida-based contractor has proposed a new method of replacing existing asbestos concrete water and sewer pipes. Such underground pipes are a major health hazard, as exposure to asbestos can lead to the development of asbestosis, mesothelioma and other lung diseases, culminating in wrongful death.
