Pioneers in Asbestos Litigation

Asbestos, that has been used for literally many thousands of years as an insulation and fire-retardant material, has been long linked to sickness and even death. But, evidence was discovered and revealed that many of the industries making products with asbestos were conscious of the hazards that asbestos did cause problems to exposed laborers and workers to the dangerous fibers of asbestos due to greed.

Federal government

Finally, the Federal Government stepped in during 1972 using OSHA to start to regulate the manufacture as well as the sale of products containing asbestos. As more data on diseases caused by asbestos that was hidden by the asbestos industry was exposed by the “Environmental Protection Agency” and “Consumer Product Safety Commission” they enforced regulations that were strict on its use in industrial and commercial products.

Cancer

Asbestos cancer diagnosis, including the diagnosis of Mesothelioma and lung cancer, can be difficult because the symptoms of these illnesses can in the early stages mimic those of various other, more minor, complications of respiratory problems. Symptoms and signs, such as:

  • Chest pain;
  • Shortness of breath;
  • Chronic dry cough.

Can lead medical professionals to suspect mesothelioma, especially if the patient has a known history of asbestos exposure.

Testing for malignant cells

Analysis tools such as CT scans and MRIs are used for patients where cancer from asbestos is suspected. In many cases, these scans of imaging can deliver a picture of the tumor, but a biopsy will more than likely be needed to conclusive determine the diagnosis of Mesothelioma rather than other forms of lung carcinomas. In cases of peritoneal or pleural effusions, liquid build-up has revealed in some patients. These are drained and removing the fluid by pleurocentesis can let oncologists test the fluid for the existence of cells that are malignant.

Mesothelioma

The only known cause of Mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. The dust and particles of asbestos that have been ingested or inhaled causing disruption and inflammation of normal cell growth on the level that can only be seen microscopically. This can lead to the development of Mesothelioma cancer.

Products – commercial and consumers

Thousands of consumers, industrial, and commercial products were mass-produced with asbestos from the 1940s through the 1990s. Most of these corporations knew the effects this exposure could be deadly to their employees as well as customers and yet they still used this deadly material purely for corporate greed.
