Insurer seeks recovery of settlement paid to asbestos victims

In September, we wrote about a settlement that had been reached between the state of Montana and more than 1,000 plaintiffs who had been injured by the mass asbestos exposure that plagued the small mining town of Libby, Montana.

Study: chemotherapy may be safe for pregnant mothers

For many years, pregnant women who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another form of cancer have faced an impossible choice: undergo chemotherapy and risk severely injuring the baby, deliver the baby early and risk the complications of premature birth, or terminate the pregnancy.

Man admits to smoking cigarettes in mesothelioma lawsuit

A North Carolina man and his wife have filed a lawsuit against more than 70 companies, claiming that they are responsible for the man's ultimate diagnosis of mesothelioma. In his lawsuit, the man states that he smoked cigarettes for 20 years. The suit raises an interesting question: does an admittance of cigarette smoking significantly affect a mesothelioma lawsuit?

International asbestos trial nears verdict

Two international businessmen will soon learn their fate after a long trial in which they defended against charged that they were responsible for more than 3,000 asbestos-related deaths. If convicted, the men will face up to 20 years in prison and may have to pay damages to more than 6,000 people who have joined in a civil asbestos lawsuit.

Four mesothelioma lawsuits filed in St. Louis

Late last month, four plaintiffs filed four separate mesothelioma lawsuits in St. Louis, each claiming that more than a dozen companies had negligently contributed to the eventual diagnosis of mesothelioma in either the plaintiff or a member of their family.

Asbestos imports increase by 30 percent

Imports of asbestos into the United States have been on the rise in the last three years following several years of significant declines, according to new data from the United States Geological Survey (USGS). It is unclear why or where the dangerous asbestos products are being used, but the report has angered many mesothelioma patient advocates who are working to eliminate asbestos imports entirely.

Dad's asbestos exposure at issue in daughter's mesothelioma suit

Often, when we see a mesothelioma lawsuit filed by a son or daughter regarding their parent's disease and asbestos exposure, it is a situation in which the parent filed the suit and then succumbed to the disease before the case was fully resolved. In a recent lawsuit filed against several national companies, however, the plaintiff is suing on behalf of herself, claiming that she suffered both emotional and financial losses as the result of her father's death.
