Too few people understand how laboratories can still pose a risk of asbestos exposure, even today. Though asbestos is no longer used in new products, existing products containing asbestos are still in use. Many of these products may be in use in scientific laboratories.
Old Bunsen burners, for instance, may still have asbestos materials in them; old laboratories are a common source, for that reason, of asbestos exposure and the subsequent development of mesothelioma.
SIGNATURE CASE: Recovered nearly $2 million for medical laboratory technician who used asbestos-containing laboratory supplies while performing clinical diagnostic tests for patients, which caused her to develop peritoneal mesothelioma.

How Can Sieben Polk P.A. Help You Now?
At Sieben Polk P.A., we understand this problem particularly well because we still represent people on a regular basis who have contracted mesothelioma as a result of being exposed to asbestos in a laboratory. Our work in this area is informed by our work across the spectrum of occupations that have historically exposed workers and their families to asbestos.
We have represented individuals and family members who have been impacted by asbestos exposure throughout the Upper Midwest since 1979. In that time, we have collected and analyzed much of the key evidence in Minnesota asbestos cases that firms from around the nation now rely upon in their own Minnesota cases.
For that reason, you should know you do not need to go anywhere else. If you have a mesothelioma case in Minnesota, then you want to work with us.
