Do you know the most common form of mesothelioma?

You may have already known that asbestos is toxic and tried to avoid it, or maybe you had never even heard of the substance before receiving a life-altering diagnosis. The fatal cancer mesothelioma is unfortunately not an uncommon outcome of asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma can present in several different forms, but pleural mesothelioma is the most common in South Carolina.

U.S. Supreme Court issues opinion on asbestos

There’s good news for Navy veterans who developed mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure on ships: The U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion allowing mesothelioma victims to take action against the manufacturers of boilers, pumps and other metal equipment that required asbestos components be added in order for them to operate.

Hundreds of students displaced after asbestos exposure

Students and parents alike tend to expect schools to be safe places that are free from serious threats and risks. Sadly, this is not always the case. Older school buildings can pose various dangers, especially when poor upkeep contributes to things like hidden mold or dangerous stairwells. Another hidden risk in many old schools? The possibility of asbestos exposure.

Why does asbestos litigation seem so common?

The use of asbestos is heavily regulated, which might lead some people in South Carolina to believe that it is a past problem that has no more bearing on current times. Unfortunately, this is far from reality. As some people develop health problems decades after exposure and companies make headlines for concealing the presence asbestos in their products, asbestos litigation will continue to be an outlet for victims to seek necessary compensation.

No recall for Claire's products linked to asbestos exposure

Many women, teenagers and even young girls in South Carolina can recount going to a Claire's store to have their ears pierced. The popular chain not only provides ear piercing services, it also sells a wide variety of items marketed to young girls. Unfortunately, some of those products likely resulted in asbestos exposure.
