In need of support regarding asbestos litigation?
There are many old buildings in South Carolina, including schools, libraries and various factories and housing structures. While such buildings are often quite ornate and beautiful, they also could contain potentially dangerous health hazards. This is because a lot of paint, floor and ceiling tiles, insulation and other products used long ago contain asbestos. Cases of asbestos litigation continue to increase as years go on and people suffer non-curable diseases caused by exposure to asbestos.
Much has been learned in recent years regarding health risks associated with asbestos. Employers are now obligated to inform their workers of existing asbestos on worksites. They must also provide proper training and safety equipment in all situations where employees may be at risk for adverse health conditions due to asbestos exposure.
Many lung diseases and cancers associated with asbestos exposure do not present symptoms until long after an initial exposure has taken place. This means it could be years before a person is diagnosed with cancer and finds out it may have been caused by exposure to asbestos on the job five, 10 or more years ago. Asbestos litigation is often complicated and stressful.
