Can people exposed to asbestos sue before they become ill?

In most instances of mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases, the cases are only brought to court once the person who was allegedly exposed is diagnosed. Affected Minnesota workers and their families are left to suffer through the disease due to signs of the illness only appearing much later. A large scale lawsuit in another state may impact the precedent for asbestos related cases if the claims are substantiated.

It is common for those who worked with asbestos-containing products to be diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Many people who are exposed to asbestos develop illnesses such as mesothelioma or lung cancer years later. Those who were exposed in Minnesota and elsewhere may have potentially exposed their families to the asbestos contamination without knowing it.

Watching loved ones die is a horrible experience for spouses, especially when they believe that the deaths could have been prevented. People in Minnesota go to work each day under the assumption that they are protected and safe in their environments, but that is not always true.

Workers who were exposed to asbestos have a high likelihood of contracting illnesses such as mesothelioma.

Most people go to work every day with the belief that they are going to be in a safe environment.

A majority of the workers who suffer from asbestos-related illnesses are generally exposed to it over the course of several years. Minnesota workers who are exposed to asbestos many not exhibit signs of any type of illness until many years later.

Going to work and being safe should be something that go hand in hand. People in Minnesota and across the country shouldn't fear going to work because their safety could be compromised.

Years later, many employees are realizing that they are suffering from asbestos-related illnesses such as mesothelioma because they were not properly protected.

Today, thousands of workers are now suffering the dangerous, and often deadly, effects of mesothelioma.
