Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Asbestos Laws

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released information in the 1970s which demonstrated the relationship between asbestos exposure and cancer. In order to eliminate or reduce the threat that asbestos posed to public health, the substance became heavily regulated in a variety of ways.

United States Asbestos Laws

Asbestos is longer allowed to be mined in the United States. However, use of the material is allowed, though heavily regulated. Heat-resistant fabrics, clutches of cars, and building materials often contain the substance. Therefore, thousands of people are still being exposed to high amounts of the material and therefore are at higher risk of developing cancer in the future.

Asbestos Lawsuits

People affected by asbestos related diseases are entitled to compensation for their family member’s asbestos related deaths. Injuries and other damages have been covered in an ongoing “mass tort.” Typically, the families of terminal patients will seek and receive compensation for their pain and suffering.

Since the 1920’s, millions of Americans have been exposed to asbestos. This is why asbestos exposure is responsible for the deaths of approximately 8% of men over the age of 50. These statistics are alarming and hard to accept, given the horrific nature of many asbestos-related illnesses. Although nothing can reverse the exposure, there may be some comfort in knowing compensation is available.
