Good news for Minnesota residents with asbestos exposure injuries

Many Minnesota households include family members who have been diagnosed with malignant pleural mesothelioma. This is one of the most common and aggressive forms of cancer associated with asbestos exposure. Symptoms often lie hidden in a person's body for years until, perhaps, a lingering cough, chest pain or sudden weight loss prompts the individual to seek medical attention, thereby leading to a diagnosis. 

Family of former university professor sues re mesothelioma

In Minnesota and elsewhere, employers are typically protected against lawsuits for personal negligence filed by injured workers. Instead, injured workers may file claims for benefits under the workers' compensation program. However, the family of a former university professor who died of mesothelioma is initiating litigation against school officials, alleging that the school's negligence is a direct cause of their family member's death.

Financial settlement can't undo asbestos exposure

Minnesota teachers may be among other school faculty across the country who are growing increasingly concerned about possible health hazards in the workplace. Many school buildings that exist today were built decades ago, which, in some cases, places teachers, students and visitors at risk for certain health problems. A teacher in another state was devoted to her students for more than 30 years before learning she had contracted a terminal illness that was likely caused by asbestos exposure at the school where she taught.
