Well-known actor passes away from mesothelioma

When we go to see movies, many of us appreciate a good action film that has us on the edge of our seats. However, if we knew that the actors in movies or on TV were repeatedly put in danger of getting seriously injured or sick, we might not be so eager to buy a ticket.

Family members seek justice after asbestos-related fatalities

Losing a loved one to an asbestos-related illness can be devastating. Mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis can all be caused by exposure to asbestos and they can all be aggressive, painful illnesses that may not respond to treatment. Because of how difficult it can be to treat these conditions, victims can often pass away relatively quickly after diagnosis.

Navy veteran dies from asbestos-related illness

We often discuss the unique risks that members of the U.S. Navy were, and continue to be, exposed to during their time in the service in regards to asbestos. Veterans and shipyard workers are particularly susceptible to asbestos-related illnesses because of long, concentrated exposure to the toxic material that was commonly used in naval vessels. They may have slept near pipes coated with asbestos or worked in engine rooms where asbestos dust was kicked up when valves, pumps and gaskets were being replaced.

Son files lawsuit after father dies of mesothelioma

Losing a loved one who has suffered an asbestos-related illness can be devastating. These tragic deaths can happen quite quickly after a diagnosis, which can leave family members hurt, confused and looking for answers and a sense of closure and justice. These deaths are typically not accidental; they can be the result of extreme and long-term negligence. Under these circumstances, it may be appropriate for family members to consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the party or parties responsible for exposing a victim to asbestos.

Mesothelioma claims the life of oil refinery operator

Mesothelioma is a devastating and fatal disease. Too many people develop this form of cancer after being exposed to toxic levels of asbestos. Any person can come into contact with the deadly substance, but it disproportionately affects those who spent years working with or around asbestos without knowing the dangers associated with the mineral.

The business of asbestos lawsuits

Victims of an asbestos-related disease no doubt experience some very difficult and trying emotions from the moment they are diagnoses. They are often angry, confused, sad, frightened and often determined to hold the party responsible for their illness accountable.

Remembering victims on National Mesothelioma Awareness Day

People in North Carolina may be aware that Sept. 26 was Mesothelioma Awareness Day. While it is crucial to highlight awareness efforts and review the causes of and solutions to mesothelioma, most people affected by this terrible disease would agree that one day is not enough.

Who are the indirect victims of asbestos exposure?

Asbestos has long been identified as a carcinogen. That means that exposure to the toxic substance can cause cancers such as mesothelioma, which is an aggressive and fatal disease. Even though people have known for decades that asbestos exposure can be toxic, many people went to work every day without being properly protected. Those who worked in shipyards, on construction sites and on railroads were among those exposed to asbestos on a regular basis. 

Family of asbestos-exposure victim awarded $1.4 million

Diseases that are caused because of exposure to asbestos can be some of the most devastating illnesses. Many victims of mesothelioma, asbestosis and other types of lung cancer often develop the disease long before they notice any symptoms. In fact, a diagnosis for these illnesses often comes decades after exposure has taken place. Even more upsetting is that they can be quite aggressive. By the time a victim learns that he or she is suffering from an asbestos-related condition, it is too late for treatment to be effective. In many cases, it is just a matter of a few months before a person passes away.

Mesothelioma can affect people at any age

When we read stories about people who are suffering from an asbestos-related disease, they are often older men who worked in dangerous conditions for decades. Less frequently, but still too often, we read about the women who are diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease after years of washing the toxic dust off of their husband's work clothes.
