What to watch for: Early signs of mesothelioma

Each year, an estimated 3,000 Americans are diagnosed with mesothelioma. People exposed to asbestos – such as through work – may be more likely to get the disease, even if that exposure was decades ago. Diagnoses are generally most common among older men.

What you should know about asbestos litigation in South Carolina

Maybe you never imagined that you would develop mesothelioma or another type of asbestos-related disease, but that does not change the fact that you did. You understand just how difficult it is to live with one of these diseases. On top of pain and suffering, you may have a diminished quality of life and hefty medical bills you are struggling to pay. If you need help getting compensation for your injuries and are ready to pursue asbestos litigation in South Carolina, here is what you can expect.

Couple pursues asbestos litigation over husband's injuries

Victims who develop mesothelioma or other related diseases often do so after only being exposed to asbestos from a single source, such as through employment. However, some victims in South Carolina might have developed asbestos-related diseases after multiple sources of exposure. One couple is currently in the middle of asbestos litigation for this type of situation.

Workers say asbestos exposure put them at risk

South Carolina workers should be able to trust their employers to provide safe working environments. When dangers arise in a workplace, an employer should alert his or her staff to the problem. In some situations -- such as that of asbestos exposure -- removing workers from an area is the most appropriate course of action. Not all employers treat this situation as seriously as they should.

Asbestos is far from being a problem of the past. This dangerous substance can still be found in a number of older products that still exist today, and new uses in specific industries may make it difficult for people in South Carolina to avoid asbestos exposure throughout the course of their lives. For example, depending on the age of a person's home, asbestos could be hiding in plain sight.
