Expert in mesothelioma case relied on Georgia Pacific studies

As we discussed on this blog earlier this month, a 69-year-old carpenter from Kansas filed a lawsuit in 2012 against dozens of companies who manufactured, distributed or sold asbestos-containing products used for drywall work. He is dying from a combination of diabetes, heart disease and mesothelioma. The only defendant still contesting its responsibility is Georgia Pacific, which the plaintiff says manufactured the drywall-joint sealing compounds he typically used.

Asbestos may be in your home: how to avoid possible health risks

If your home was built before about 1996, it could very well have components that contain asbestos. Shocked? It’s true. The Environmental Protection Agency started a phased ban of asbestos-containing products used in residential construction in 1989, but the final phase wasn’t even intended to be completed until 1996.

Diagnosed with asbestos disease? Don't wait to seek legal help

When people are diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestos lung cancer or another asbestos-related illness, it often comes as a surprise. Cancers caused by the deadly fiber seem like something that only happened in the past, before most asbestos products were banned in the U.S. Surely people aren’t still being diagnosed with these illnesses today.

Man says Georgia Pacific carpentry products gave him mesothelioma

A 69-year-old Kansas carpenter is dying of heart disease, diabetes and mesothelioma. Doctors say he has only months to live. This week, a jury in Madison County is tasked with determining whether his mesothelioma was caused by his use of drywall joint compounds manufactured by Georgia Pacific -- and whether that company is therefore responsible for his illness.
