Victims of asbestos exposure upset by new law

Illinois residents should keep an eye on a fellow Midwest state, which has recently signed into law a bill to place obstacles in the path of asbestos litigation. In what is a disturbing result for victims of mesothelioma, the state will now place extra burdens on those who pursue asbestos litigation.

Mesothelioma Victims Center helps victims with new initiative

Victims suffering from mesothelioma across the nation, including many here in Madison County, know how important it is to seek legal representation when filing a personal injury case. But often times, people are talked into obtaining a lawyer who may not have all the necessary knowledge that it takes to deal with such an intricate case, resulting in victims being financially shortchanged.

Jury awards $32 million for Navy vet's mesothelioma

An 18-year Navy veteran who developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos on Navy vessels has received a substantial jury verdict in his lawsuit against two industrial manufacturing companies that provided asbestos-laden valves, gaskets and boiler assemblies for the ships he served on. The New York jury awarded the vet $16 million in compensation for past pain and suffering and an additional $16 million for future pain and suffering.

Navy veteran awarded multi-million damages in asbestos lawsuit

Although mesothelioma is common among workers in industries such as general contractors and construction workers, railroad employees, and heating and cooling installers and maintenance workers, it is especially prevalent among U.S. Navy and other military veterans. This is because naval shipyard employees worked with products containing asbestos on a daily basis. Boilers, hydraulic assemblies, gaskets, adhesives, and thermal insulation are just a few examples of the many asbestos-laden products regularly encountered by Navy veterans.

Department of Defense offers grants for mesothelioma research

Every year, around 2,500 people are diagnosed with some form of mesothelioma in the United States. Although anyone is susceptible to the disease, there are several occupations, such as plumbing, railroad work, heating and cooling, general contracting, and similar jobs, that leave employees at a higher risk for the disease.
