Our firm recently published a SlideShare that provides helpful information for mesothelioma victims and their families. Learn which industries exposed workers to deadly asbestos fibers. We will help you fight for compensation for your losses, compensation that can be used by your family in the future.
Were you or someone you love recently diagnosed with mesothelioma? This deadly cancer is caused by exposure to asbestos fibers. Many people were exposed to these microscopic fibers while working in occupations and industries that used high levels of asbestos.
Scientists recently discovered the true cause of asbestos-related cancers. It's not the asbestos fibers themselves; it's what the fibers do once they are in a person's lungs.
Asbestos, as most people in Ohio know, is an extremely toxic substance that can lead to mesothelioma and other debilitating types of illnesses. Despite this well-accepted link between asbestos exposure and serious health risks, some businesses continue to put workers and consumers at an unnecessary risk. First Capital Insulation Inc. -- an out-of-state insulation company -- was recently slapped with a fine for failing to protect its employees.
Although some asbestos exposure cases can be traced back to a single company or exposure, other claims are not as well defined. Exposure from companies decades ago can be a complicated matter for Ohio victims. One woman believes that she developed cancer after continual asbestos exposure over several years.
Most people do not need to be told how dangerous asbestos is. Simply mention the possibility of asbestos exposure and many people in Ohio begin to feel on edge and nervous, as most are fully aware of the havoc that the substance can wreak on a person's body. One out-of-state community is apparently feeling unnerved at the revelation that asbestos-contaminated dirt was found near their homes.
Some asbestos injury victims in Ohio may be feeling let down after a recent decision by a bankruptcy judge. Energy Future Holdings Corporation had hundreds of injury claims related to asbestos exposure before it filed for bankruptcy, which the judge handling the bankruptcy now says the company won't have to pay. While this may not have been the answer that many were hoping for, there may be a renewed opportunity to seek justice through asbestos litigation following the conclusion of the bankruptcy case.
A doctor has sobering news for Ohio residents suffering from mesothelioma. In a recent article, the doctor states that current mesothelioma research is showing little progress in its attempt to more successfully treat the fatal disease. The doctor claims that researchers need more funding and more efficient research planning to make any significant breakthroughs.
