Victim settles mesothelioma claim with Colgate-Palmolive

Baby powder is frequently associated with the company Johnson & Johnson, but many other brands produce and distribute this product. Colgate-Palmolive is another such brand, and it recently settled a claim that its baby powder products caused mesothelioma for an out-of-state man. This outcome could be good news for victims in South Carolina who are considering pursuing compensation for their own injuries.

Victims may not recognize asbestos exposure when it happens

Most people know that asbestos is dangerous and can lead to a number of health issues. However, few understand exactly what this toxic substance is or why asbestos exposure is so harmful to human health. By better understanding the substance and its identifying features, individuals in South Carolina can better protect themselves.

Construction worker blames lung cancer on asbestos exposure

Most people in South Carolina know that inhaling asbestos can lead to developing the deadly cancer mesothelioma. Less common knowledge, however, is that asbestos exposure can also cause other serious health issues. One woman claims that her lung cancer is the result of decades of exposure to asbestos, and she is seeking compensation for her injuries.

Children bear brunt of asbestos exposure in school crisis

South Carolina parents send their children to school with the expectation that they will be taught in a safe and secure environment. Virtually no one expects that their child will suddenly fall ill because of the very building they are being sent to learn in. Unfortunately, for some parents and students, asbestos exposure from schools is a terrifying reality. An out-of-state school district claims that it is attempting to rectify the presence of dangerous toxic materials in its schools, but is so far not making much progress. Many of the schools were built before 1970 and are now laden with asbestos, lead and mold, which is having a profound impact on schoolchildren.
