Building executives plead guilty to asbestos-related crimes

Despite extensive documentation regarding asbestos and the dangers it presents, there are still individuals and companies that attempt to skirt the strict laws that are in place to protect workers and the public at large. Such a situation recently played out in California, where three executives with a now-out-of-business builder pleaded guilty in federal court to violating the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants by exposing workers to asbestos.

Aging arena to be target of asbestos-exposure lawsuits

With the recent trend in professional sports to discard older facilities in favor of new ones, most professional sports facilities have either been replaced or renovated in the last 25 years. Even venerable institutions such as Yankee Stadium have been torn down and replaced with newer versions. In the National Hockey League, Brooklyn's Barclays Center, a facility that opened last fall, is poised to become the home of the New York Islanders starting in the fall of 2015.

University has no plans to renovate asbestos-filled building

As we have written about many times on this blog, exposure to asbestos is a frequent cause of a particular type of cancer known as mesothelioma. It can be contracted by people who have spent extended periods of time around asbestos, such as in a shipyard, or even by people who have a spouse or family member who could have brought home asbestos fibers on their clothes.

State considers stricter labeling of asbestos-containing products

To many people, asbestos might seem like a thing of the past. While thinking about its use might conjure thoughts about diseases that can develop from asbestos exposure -- such as mesothelioma -- most people might think that it is a problem that is unlikely to be encountered today. Unfortunately, this is simply not true.

Legislation could alter the structure of asbestos trust payments

People who have developed mesothelioma or another serious lung disease as a result of exposure to asbestos know that it can be a long road toward getting compensation -- and in some cases, satisfaction may not come until after the ill person has passed away. That's why it is all the more frustrating when there are accusations that money set aside for victims of asbestos exposure is not being adequately safeguarded.

Widow files mesothelioma suit after death of plumber husband

A woman has filed a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of her late husband, whom she said died in 2011 as a result of mesothelioma. The woman is suing the plumbing company that employed her husband for several years. The woman originally filed a suit against dozens of companies a month before her husband died, but that suit has since been disposed of.

Town figuring out what to do with asbestos-tinged equipment

When people have been exposed to asbestos, it might be years -- even decades -- before they are diagnosed with conditions such as mesothelioma or lung cancer. This is why It is crucial, if a person thinks that he or she may have been exposed to asbestos recently, to take action as soon as possible.

Woman looks for ex-colleagues after mesothelioma diagnosis

Like many others before her, a woman in her late 50s has learned that she has developed mesothelioma despite not being exposed to it for decades. The woman, who was diagnosed nearly a year ago, worked as a teenager in factories that manufactured paper filters for cigarettes.

Decades of construction work resulted in man's death

Workers in certain industries are unfortunately at a greater risk of encountering harmful substances than workers in other industries. For instance, many construction workers have been exposed to asbestos. One man lost his brother, who worked in construction for decades, to an asbestos-related disease. This man's brother was only 63 years old and was very healthy when he suddenly became aware that he had a health problem.
