Anyone who lives near or has worked in Minnesota factories, school buildings, libraries or other old structures may have cause for concern regarding certain microscopic particles that can be ingested into lungs and cause adverse health conditions. Asbestos exposure happens to be the topic of an upcoming full feature film that is scheduled to air in another state. The movie reportedly goes into depth about asbestos litigation regarding personal injury claims.
A lead producer of the film said the basic question his movie poses is whether the current system is really the best means for providing compensation to injured victims harmed by exposure to asbestos. Not everyone is happy about the upcoming film, which, according to filmmakers, is still a work in progress at this point. After a recent private viewing of the film, heated debates arose as to whether the film presents a fair perspective on the topic.
The full-length movie is scheduled to launch publicly in Pennsylvania. The film’s producer says this location was chosen because the state happens to be home to many asbestos litigation cases. In fact, one very famous case against Garlock Sealing Technologies, LLC involves approximately 4,000 injured asbestos victims and is tied to a firm in Philadelphia.
Very serious illnesses caused by asbestos exposure continue to plague families in Minnesota and beyond. There is no cure for mesothelioma or asbestosis, two of the most common types of disease associated with exposure to asbestos. Anyone in this state in need of legal guidance regarding a particular asbestos-related situation may request a consultation with an attorney who is well-versed in asbestos litigation law.
