When asbestos exposure and negligence have fatal results

Sometime around 1979, there was an apparent increase in families suffering the loss of loved ones in workplace situations. Such incidents often have to do with asbestos exposure. Many Minnesota spouses, parents and children have grieved the loss of their loved ones in situations that may have been prevented had the employers of their family members fulfilled their obligations to keep their workers safe.  

Dealing with the ravaging effects of asbestosis

The dangers of asbestos have been known for a long time, which is why the federal Clean Air Act of 1970 was enacted. At that time, most sprayed-on forms of asbestos were banned in the United States. Sadly, many people in Minnesota and beyond were already exposed to asbestos years ago and are now experiencing adverse health conditions such as asbestosis as a result.  

Demolition plans halted due to potential asbestos exposure

Many Minnesota workers and residential occupants are at risk for certain health conditions although they may not realize it. There are many buildings and work environments throughout the state and nation that place employees and residents in harm's way regarding possible asbestos exposure. At times, such exposure happens by chance, without those involved realizing dangerous microscopic fibers are present in their surroundings. Sadly, other exposures occur when employers or town officials are fully aware of potential problems but fail in their duties to inform others or take precautions to keep them safe.
