Mesothelioma: A nagging cough is often the first symptom

Many Minnesotans once worked in factories, shipyards, on a railroad or in other work environments with a high risk of asbestos exposure. Typically, they were unaware that of the dangers they faced. Others did not receive the proper training or safety equipment available to keep them safe on the job. This is why, years later, many of them suffer from mesothelioma or other health problems associated with asbestos exposure.

Mesothelioma: Symptoms might stay hidden for years

It is possible to have a terminal illness and not know it. Many Minnesota residents will be among others throughout the country who receive a diagnosis this year, informing them that they have an incurable disease. Mesothelioma is one such disease, and it often afflicts people who have worked in coal mines, factories, shipyards or old school buildings.

Mesothelioma: A diagnosis that often stems from the workplace

Minnesota workers have often been placed at risk for asbestos injuries. Sadly, in many situations, the employers in question knew there were risks, but for various reasons, either did not inform their workers or failed to provide proper training and equipment to help keep them safe. Employers are legally obligated to do so. Often, a worker learns of his or her injury when a doctor diagnoses him or her with mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma: Determining action regarding employer negligence

Learning that you have been walking around for years with a latent disease inside your body might as well be compared to receiving a sudden punch to the gut. If your doctor has diagnosed you with mesothelioma, he or she has also no doubt explained that, at this time, there is no cure for this disease. There are numerous ways this illness can affect the body. Your Minnesota medical team and care providers will help you determine which course of treatment might be best.

Mesothelioma: Seeking justice when negligence is the cause

Many people in Minnesota and beyond have recently been informed by their doctors that they have an incurable illness. Mesothelioma is a type of lung cancer that often occurs in people who have been exposed to asbestos. Symptoms of this disease are not typically immediately apparent.

Mesothelioma: Was a Minnesota employer negligent in your case?

Many Minnesota residents have been placed in harm's way in the workplace. Such situations often involve asbestos. Employers are obligated to inform their workers when they are aware of asbestos issues on the job. Further, they must provide proper training and equipment to keep their workers as safe as possible. Mesothelioma is one of several incurable illnesses that can afflict workers when employers fail in their duties.

Mesothelioma one of many Minnesota asbestos-related issues

In 1981, the first Minnesota asbestos litigation case was heard. Sadly, such cases have been on the rise since then, as many families have been devastated by mesothelioma, asbestosis and other asbestos-related health problems. These often occur due to asbestos exposure in the workplace.

Homeowners: Remember the risks of asbestos

You don't have to look too far to find someone remodeling a home, whether it's just down your street or on the numerous home renovation shows on TV. Especially now that spring is here, people all over Minnesota are starting to think about their own home construction projects.

Asbestos a lingering hazard in U.S. schools

Despite efforts to monitor and abate asbestos in schools, many schools still contain asbestos, potentially putting both students and teachers at risk for developing mesothelioma and other deadly diseases.

New therapies focus on improving mesothelioma survival rates

The hazards of asbestos exposure has been known for a long time and the majority of asbestos-related products have been removed from our marketplace. Despite this, mesothelioma rates have continued to rise. According to the Environmental Working Group, 4,852 people died in Minnesota between 1999 and 2013 of asbestos related deaths.
