Officials in another state arguing over asbestos exposure issues

Many buildings in Minnesota and other states are plagued with health hazards. The problem is that workers or visitors to such places are not always aware of the danger. To make matters worse, in some situations, employers or building owners are indeed aware of the potential risks but fail to provide information, training or equipment to help keep workers and others safe. In another state, there is currently contention brewing between city council members and the mayor regarding asbestos exposure issues.

Minnesota employers’ obligations regarding asbestos exposure

A landmark case in Virginia could pave the way for other states to examine asbestos liability. The Supreme Court was asked to examine whether an employer owed a duty to warn a family member of asbestos exposure when the employer failed to prevent asbestos fibers from being brought home.

US Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh hearing asbestos exposure case

The newest of the nine U.S. Supreme Court Justices, Brett Kavanaugh, was set to hear his first cases on the high court this week. One of the cases involves an asbestos exposure situation. It is a complicated products liability case that was filed by two Navy widows. Asbestos-related illnesses and injuries are problematic in Minnesota and throughout the nation; many of those adversely affected are people who used to work in shipyards.  

Is your breathing disorder related to work and asbestosis?

If you have worked in a Minnesota mine, mill or spray insulation industry, you are at risk for asbestos exposure. One particular illness, asbestosis, is a breathing disorder that often causes devastating life consequences and, in worst cases, even death. Those afflicted with this or other asbestos-related illnesses often need daily living assistance and legal support.
