Delaware Supreme Court helps secondary asbestos exposure victims

Across the country, the rights of mesothelioma victims have been under attack. This is particularly true of people who were exposed to asbestos indirectly, usually through the clothes of a loved one. Asbestos fibers are small, and easily cling to hair, clothes and boots. When a worker gets home covered in asbestos dust, spouses, children and anyone who comes in contact is at risk of inhaling asbestos fibers. Spouses who wash clothes are particularly at risk for repeated exposure.

What you need to know about asbestos exposure among Navy veterans

For most of the 20th century, asbestos was widely used in the U.S. Navy, both in the shipyards were the vessels were built and onboard in a wide array of applications.

Often, the disease remains undetected for a period of 20 to 50 years before resulting in a terminal diagnosis.

Asbestos Now, Asbestos Later

The legal battle surrounding Garlock Sealing Technologies and its asbestos-containing products has taken a new turn. The company, currently in bankruptcy, has recently struck a deal with future asbestos claimants.

That agreement has sparked controversy among the people with existing claims against the company.

Should smokers with occupational asbestos exposure be shut out?

In October, Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy, a longtime smoker, filed a lawsuit for lung cancer she has medical evidence to show was caused by exposure to asbestos when she was a teen and young adult.

Because of her smoking, however, her lawsuit brought a storm of criticism.
