While serving their country, countless vets exposed to asbestos

While vets from virtually every branch of the military may have been exposed to asbestos while serving their country — including those in the Army, Air Force and Marines — those serving in the US Navy may have experienced the worst of it. In fact, you could probably find asbestos on almost any US Naval ship built prior to the 1980s. From fireproofing to insulation, literally tons of asbestos was used for a variety of purposes on each vessel.

Wrongful death claims versus workers' compensation: Your choices

When you get hurt on the job, you know that you have a right to workers' compensation. What happens if you die at work, though? Are your family members able to file a wrongful death lawsuit, or do they need to accept workers' compensation death benefits instead?

Asbestos exposure can lead to health trauma

We recently discussed the issue of the rising mesothelioma death rate. This troublesome news brings the highlight back onto the difficult issue of asbestos-related illnesses and the horrible outcome that these cases come with. We know that many people who are suffering from these illnesses were only trying to make an honest living when they were exposed to asbestos. Corporate greed and a lax safety system have put these workers in danger.

Is my kid's school required to remove asbestos? Not necessarily.

When your child gets on the school bus every morning, the last thing you expect is that he or she is being driven to a classroom contaminated with dangerous asbestos. While this may sound surprising to many, the sad reality is that school administrators aren't necessarily required by law to remove asbestos, even if they know it is there.

Workers' compensation covers more than just injuries

Many people think of workers' compensation as dealing only with injuries that are the result of an accident. This isn't the case. Injuries from accidents are only one aspect of workers' compensation. Workers can also seek workers' compensation for other work-related conditions, such as illnesses caused by toxic exposure and similar matters.
