Study: Multiple cell mutations found in mesothelioma development

There is no question that mesothelioma is a horrible disease that can lead to a rapid, unpleasant death. When it is diagnosed it is often that much more difficult to handle because of the circumstances surrounding the development of the condition. In many cases those who are diagnosed with mesothelioma were unknowingly exposed to asbestos over a long period of time. It is fair to say that many facing the reality of having mesothelioma would have selected a different occupation had they been aware of the risks.

When veterans develop asbestos-related diseases

Many of our nation's veterans were exposed to significant harms during their time serving our country. Some of these harms were ones that veterans were aware that they could face, as there are many risks associated with combat. However, there are other harms and risks veterans may have faced that they may not have been aware that they could be subjected to. Among these are the risks and harms of asbestos exposure.

What steps do I need to take if I have been exposed to asbestos?

Asbestos has long been known to cause devastating illnesses, but the product has not been completely banned in the U.S. This means that despite the laws and protections that are in place to keep people safe from asbestos, there is still a chance that people will be exposed to the unsafe material on the job or at home. 

The risks of secondary asbestos exposure

For many years, people didn't understand that asbestos posed a serious threat to people's health. Even after the risks associated with asbestos were known, people dismissed them as minor. And for long after that, people wrongly assumed that unless a person was directly exposed to asbestos, there was no risk of developing an asbestos-related illness.

The importance of time in an asbestos case

Time is an incredibly important factor when it comes to asbestos litigation. Because illnesses like mesothelioma are often diagnosed in late stages of the illness, victims of an asbestos-related disease often learn that their life expectancy could be measured in months or weeks, rather than years.

Understanding what asbestos is and why it is so dangerous

We discuss some complicated and advanced topics on this blog from time to time, from premises liability laws to federal asbestos regulations. But one thing that shouldn't be difficult to understand is that asbestos exposure can be deadly.
