Mesothelioma lawsuit accuses 100+ companies of negligence

No individual should have to face asbestos exposure because a company acted negligently. Asbestos exposure can be very harmful to an individual. Such exposure can result in individuals developing mesothelioma or other serious medical conditions. Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related medical conditions can be very impactful on their victims.

Railroad employees file suit over asbestos exposure

Former employees of national railroad company Union Pacific have filed a lawsuit saying that the company negligently exposed them to asbestos for many years, causing them to contract a lung disease. The workers who have joined as plaintiffs in the lawsuit were employed by the railroad between 1960 and 2012 as track laborers.

Family of football player sues NFL for wrongful death

The family of deceased professional football player Junior Seau is suing the NFL and the manufacturers of the helmets that the player wore. The family is pursuing a wrongful death claim, saying that the league prioritized profits over their duty to warn players of the dangerous nature of their jobs.

Asbestos liability case goes to Supreme Court

The United States Supreme Court will hear a case relating to liability for asbestos exposure this term, as Pfizer attempts to argue that it should not be held liable for the use of asbestos by a subsidiary, Quigley Co.

New bill would help speed destruction of asbestos-laden buildings

New legislation called the Common Sense Waiver Act would help expedite the process of knocking down buildings that are contaminated by asbestos. The bill deals specifically with buildings that have been condemned and are deteriorating, but that haven't collapsed on their own and aren't cleared for demolition.

Investigators find evidence of students working at asbestos site

Reporters in a small town recently found evidence that students from a local school were put to work on a volunteer project that likely exposed them to asbestos. The situation came to light after a concerned community member saw the high school students working on a site near his home that he knew was contaminated with asbestos. He filmed a brief video which shows students working to remove debris from a former YMCA building. The video is blurry, so it is unclear if the children were wearing protective masks, but they are certainly not wearing the type of industrial protective gear typically used when professional workers remove contamination.

Plaintiff's "pervasive lies" led to asbestos case dismissal

Last month, a state court of appeals affirmed a lower court's decision to dismiss a plaintiff's asbestos lawsuit after finding that he had failed to disclose evidence and attempted to tamper with witnesses during the discovery process. The case was dismissed with prejudice, which means that the plaintiff will not be able to re-file the lawsuit in that county in the future.

Mesothelioma Victims Center helps victims with new initiative

Victims suffering from mesothelioma across the nation, including many here in Madison County, know how important it is to seek legal representation when filing a personal injury case. But often times, people are talked into obtaining a lawyer who may not have all the necessary knowledge that it takes to deal with such an intricate case, resulting in victims being financially shortchanged.

Illinois Supreme Court dismissed asbestos lawsuit

After a lengthy court battle, the Illinois Supreme Court has ruled that a Mississippi man's asbestos lawsuit may not be heard and decided in St. Clair County. In making its ruling, the court stated that the hardships that litigating the case in Illinois would produce for the defendants outweighed the benefits of doing so for the plaintiff. It is an unfortunate ruling, to say the least.
