How to explore litigation options regarding asbestos exposure

When you hear the word "natural" with regard to minerals and things, it usually evokes images of good health. However, there are some natural minerals that are known to be extremely dangerous if a person is repeatedly exposed to them, such as asbestos. Asbestos is actually more than one naturally occurring mineral, known to be fire retardant, durable at high temperatures and chemical resistant. South Carolina workers suffering from asbestos exposure can tell you that it's anything but healthy.

Are you concerned for your health because of asbestos exposure?

There are many employment situations in South Carolina that are hazardous to human health. For instance, janitors often use cleaning supplies that contain dangerous chemicals that are potentially hazardous to their health. Some workers repeatedly undergo asbestos exposure, which can wind up causing serious health problems, the symptoms of which may not show up for years.

Mesothelioma: Our White Paper Guide For Patients & Their Families

Occupational exposure to asbestos from the 1940s into the 1980s is the only known cause of mesothelioma. After a diagnosis, questions of where and when exposure occurred can be difficult to answer. This is complicated by the fact that it often takes between 10 to 50 years for the disease to develop.

Airport workers told to get tested for possible asbestos exposure

Those who work in South Carolina airports know that it's not uncommon for construction projects to take place at such locations. Ongoing construction projects pose certain safety risks to airport employees, construction workers themselves, and any passenger or visitor passing through an airport as well. In another state, concerns have been raised regarding construction that took place at a particular airport last year; many workers now fear they suffered asbestos exposure.

Battling mesothelioma more hopeful now than ever

Many people in South Carolina and other regions of the United States have suffered adverse consequences of asbestos exposure over extended periods of time. Some people's illnesses occurred after being exposed to asbestos on the job. Whether work-related or not, serious illnesses such as Mesothelioma have devastated many lives.
