Aging arena to be target of asbestos-exposure lawsuits

With the recent trend in professional sports to discard older facilities in favor of new ones, most professional sports facilities have either been replaced or renovated in the last 25 years. Even venerable institutions such as Yankee Stadium have been torn down and replaced with newer versions. In the National Hockey League, Brooklyn's Barclays Center, a facility that opened last fall, is poised to become the home of the New York Islanders starting in the fall of 2015.

University has no plans to renovate asbestos-filled building

As we have written about many times on this blog, exposure to asbestos is a frequent cause of a particular type of cancer known as mesothelioma. It can be contracted by people who have spent extended periods of time around asbestos, such as in a shipyard, or even by people who have a spouse or family member who could have brought home asbestos fibers on their clothes.

State considers stricter labeling of asbestos-containing products

To many people, asbestos might seem like a thing of the past. While thinking about its use might conjure thoughts about diseases that can develop from asbestos exposure -- such as mesothelioma -- most people might think that it is a problem that is unlikely to be encountered today. Unfortunately, this is simply not true.

Legislation could alter the structure of asbestos trust payments

People who have developed mesothelioma or another serious lung disease as a result of exposure to asbestos know that it can be a long road toward getting compensation -- and in some cases, satisfaction may not come until after the ill person has passed away. That's why it is all the more frustrating when there are accusations that money set aside for victims of asbestos exposure is not being adequately safeguarded.

Widow files mesothelioma suit after death of plumber husband

A woman has filed a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of her late husband, whom she said died in 2011 as a result of mesothelioma. The woman is suing the plumbing company that employed her husband for several years. The woman originally filed a suit against dozens of companies a month before her husband died, but that suit has since been disposed of.

Woman looks for ex-colleagues after mesothelioma diagnosis

Like many others before her, a woman in her late 50s has learned that she has developed mesothelioma despite not being exposed to it for decades. The woman, who was diagnosed nearly a year ago, worked as a teenager in factories that manufactured paper filters for cigarettes.

Decades of construction work resulted in man's death

Workers in certain industries are unfortunately at a greater risk of encountering harmful substances than workers in other industries. For instance, many construction workers have been exposed to asbestos. One man lost his brother, who worked in construction for decades, to an asbestos-related disease. This man's brother was only 63 years old and was very healthy when he suddenly became aware that he had a health problem.

Mesothelioma diagnosis leads man to experimental treatment

Many people are likely aware that exposure to various harmful substances can lead to a cancer diagnosis in the future. Asbestos is one of these harmful substances and people who are exposed to asbestos can develop mesothelioma later in life. Mesothelioma is one form of cancer of the lungs.

Family mourns mother's death from mesothelioma

Some illnesses arise shortly after a person is exposed to a dangerous substance or situation. However, other illnesses, like mesothelioma, can develop many years after a person is first exposed to asbestos. This was the case for one woman who died from mesothelioma just 10 weeks after being diagnosed with the cancer.

Use of "moon suits" not enough to show negligence in asbestos case

A former hammer shop worker for airplane manufacturing company Boeing will not be able to recover in a civil suit for his asbestos-related injuries, according to a recent appeals court decision. The employee had worked in a hammer shop below a repair area in a Boeing plant. The workers in the repair shop had ventilators and "moon suits" protecting them from the dust from their work, but the man in this case says he was denied protective clothing and told to get back to work when he asked to obtain it.
