Mesothelioma/Asbestos-Related Illness Archives

Arizona limits rights of secondary asbestos exposure victims

Ernest Quiroz Jr. died from mesothelioma in 2014. His lawsuit against his father's former employer maintained that he had been exposed to asbestos as a boy, decades ago, from toxic dust brought home on his father's work clothes.

Recent asbestos case has companies looking to curb victim rights

Inhaling asbestos dust increases your risk for mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. Unfortunately, many workers were not aware of the danger asbestos posed. For decades, companies failed to warn workers of what they knew of the science behind asbestos exposure.

Asbestos-related deaths may be double what previously thought

According to the International Commission on Occupational Health, a non-govermental organization dedicated to workers' health issues, deaths caused by asbestos exposure are likely to be significantly higher than reported.

OSHA requires asbestos training for school maintenance workers

It can be difficult to know when asbestos is present in a particular material or building. If in doubt, it is best to assume that asbestos is present. We recently wrote about the frequent presence of asbestos in schools throughout the country.

The health implications of asbestos exposure

Exposure to asbestos can be extremely damaging to your health. Unfortunately it is difficult to know whether you have been exposed to the dangerous substance or not. However, it is more likely that you have suffered exposure to asbestos if you have been working in a building that contains asbestos while it was being renovated.

Which workers are at most risk for developing mesothelioma?

Asbestos exposure among miners, millers, factory line workers and construction workers was relatively high until the 1960s and 1970s. Little did they know at the time just how deadly exposure to the mineral would prove to be later in life. It's largely due to the fact that asbestos has a latency period of 10 to 40 years that it's only now that the true harmful effects of exposure to it are being experienced by so many.
