Suffering from mesothelioma? Your employer might be to blame

The narrative around asbestos is fraught with corporate interests and influence. Before the public understood the associated risks, many corporations were fully aware of the dangers but chose to conceal that information. Even now, some South Carolina businesses limit the information they give their employees about asbestos. For them, it is all about minimizing the chance that they will have to pay compensation. But for workers, it is a potential for developing mesothelioma. 

Welder blames former employer for asbestos exposure

Working with or around asbestos is dangerous, and South Carolina employers should always be certain that they provide workers with the proper safety gear, training and knowledge to do so safely. Sadly, many workplaces conceal this type of important information, leaving workers in the dark about their situation. Many are not even aware that they experienced asbestos exposure until they develop the deadly health effects. 

Back-to-school shopping with a side of asbestos exposure?

Back-to-school time is an exciting period for parents and children alike. South Carolina families are usually focused on clothes shopping and buying new supplies in the weeks leading up to the start of the new term. Few, however, have asbestos exposure on the mind.

Parents worried about asbestos exposure at school

South Carolina parents have hundreds of worries when they send their children to school, like are they receiving a good education? Are they making friends? Do they have enough to eat? Rarely do parents have to worry about asbestos exposure in their child's school, but that is exactly what some out-of-state parents are dealing with right now.

Pipe explosion may have caused asbestos exposure for hundreds

Innocent people in South Carolina can be exposed to asbestos through any number of means. Although contaminated baby powder and irresponsible renovations are perhaps the most well-known situations, these are far from the only situations that might lead to asbestos exposure. A recent explosion in another state put hundreds of people at risk.
