Contaminated vermiculite insulation and asbestos exposure

As a follow-up to a recent blog post discussing the dangers of vermiculite insulation, we thought it was a good idea to talk more on this subject. Specifically, we wanted to address this type of insulation in the hopes of helping residents in Illinois and other areas recognize whether their homes contain this substance.

Proposed U.S. Senate bill would ban all asbestos use

Despite the known health risks of asbestos, the U.S. still imports a significant amount of the mineral fiber for use in some manufacturing processes. While it is not legal to mine asbestos in the U.S., its use is allowed for some specific purposes. Many countries in the world have completely banned asbestos.

What kind of lawyer handles defective medical device claims?

For any kind of injury claim, you will benefit from choosing an attorney with personal injury experience. However, as with all legal matters, it is wise to seek out a lawyer who is familiar with claims similar to yours. In the case of a defective medical device, your best bet is choosing an attorney with a good record of accomplishment in this area. For example, if you suffered injuries from a faulty pacemaker, it makes sense to search for an attorney who has successfully represented other pacemaker victims.

Despite the known dangers of asbestos, mesothelioma deaths are still high

Since the 1970s, asbestos use in the United States has consistently dropped. Unfortunately, however, the number of mesothelioma deaths has not experienced a similar decrease. In fact, some studies show that mesothelioma deaths may even be increasing.

Loose-filled asbestos can increase mesothelioma risk

Asbestos exposure is a known risk for those in the construction and mining industries. However, a new study out of Australia is suggesting that even just having loose-filled asbestos (vermiculite insulation) in your home can increase the risk of mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma/asbestos-related illness | Navy veterans take heed!

While service members were toiling aboard navy vessels during the World War II era, most had no idea that an additional threat lurked aboard these vessels. This threat carried no weapons and it did not care about political or social viewpoints. It could affect anyone and it had no emotional connections to keep it in check. This threat was asbestos and it occupied nearly every part of the navy in that era.
