Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Melbourne cement plant probed for asbestos-related fatalities

The Australian Health Department is urging the Victorian Cancer Registry to investigate an old cement plant in Sunshine North because it is suspected to be causing asbestos-related fatalities in the area, stated on October 12.

The Wunderlich factory is likely linked to those in the community who have died of illnesses stemming from asbestos exposure. Some former workers of the company and their family members have developed serious respiratory problems, an attorney stated. The site used to be a major asbestos manufacturing plant for several decades, and due to a inefficient cleanup effort, the area may still be unsafe. Health Minister David Davis stated that he was only aware of the issue when the media covered incident; his department is now investigating the matter.

If you or your loved one has been exposed to asbestos dust, you could develop a serious condition like mesothelioma, which often requires expensive treatment. However, you should know that remunerations may be awarded on your behalf if negligent parties are liable for your exposure.
