Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Asbestos lawsuit filed against 138 companies

A Colorado Springs man has filed an asbestos lawsuit against 138 companies that he claims are responsible for him developing mesothelioma.

The man was diagnosed with mesothelioma in March and filed his complaint in September. Because the man never smoked, he claims that this rare lung cancer was caused from his career between the years 1954 and 1979.

During his career, he worked as an electrician and a laborer where he was exposed to asbestos and asbestos-containing products. He claims that the defendants should have warned him of the dangers associated with the toxic material.

Developer sued for violating asbestos removal laws

A developer must  now pay $100,000 for allegedly violating the laws put in place by the Environmental Protection Agency when removing asbestos.

The incident occurred as the developer worked on a renovation and converted the former Union Products plastics into retail space. The project was shut down in 2009 after investigators noticed that the correct precautions were not put into place in order to prevent dangerous asbestos fibers from becoming airborne.

Asbestos particles are the primary cause of a rare cancer, mesothelioma. Workers illegally removed asbestos fibers from pipes that were covered with it. After the project was stopped, the attorney general filed a lawsuit against the developer.
