Some illnesses arise shortly after a person is exposed to a dangerous substance or situation.

Use of "moon suits" not enough to show negligence in asbestos case

A former hammer shop worker for airplane manufacturing company Boeing will not be able to recover in a civil suit for his asbestos-related injuries, according to a recent appeals court decision. The employee had worked in a hammer shop below a repair area in a Boeing plant. The workers in the repair shop had ventilators and "moon suits" protecting them from the dust from their work, but the man in this case says he was denied protective clothing and told to get back to work when he asked to obtain it.
