Asbestos exposure -- who is most at risk?

Unless working in certain industries, chances are that most people in South Carolina do not give much thought to encountering asbestos during their daily lives. However, asbestos exposure is much more common than one might think. Regular, low-level exposure can happen to anyone.

What does South Carolina state law say about asbestos exposure?

Before anyone was aware of the health hazards, asbestos was a highly valued substance used in a variety of industries. Although it is now banned for most new uses, there is no escaping the centuries of use that can still be found in office buildings, homes and even vehicles. South Carolina has laws that are intended to minimize the risk of asbestos exposure when dealing with or removing this toxic substance.

Mesothelioma cases expected to rise among 9/11 survivors

Nearly 3,000 people died in the 9/11 attacks, but the death toll steadily increases as survivors succumb to a variety of illnesses. Estimates show as many as 2,100 first responders have died from related diseases as the nation observes the 18th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Makeup company puts consumers at risk of asbestos exposure

It is no secret that asbestos is a dangerous and deadly substance. Unfortunately, South Carolina consumers might be more susceptible to asbestos exposure than they may think. Asbestos continues to show up in products where it should not, putting individual consumers at risk for developing deadly diseases.

Victim of asbestos exposure awarded $8.4 million for damages

In South Carolina, asbestos is far from a problem of the past. People who attend school in old buildings or work in industries that still use asbestos can easily come into contact with the substance. Asbestos exposure at any level can be dangerous, and health problems may develop many years later.
