Common Factors Among Mesothelioma Patients

Many people have never heard of mesothelioma until it touches their life. If a doctor recently diagnosed you or a loved one with the disease, you are probably learning a lot of information in a short amount of time. It can feel overwhelming researching possible causes of asbestos exposure and what you can do about the disease.

Contractor files lawsuit regarding improper disposal of asbestos

Companies in Georgia and elsewhere may take great care in the disposal of hazardous materials. Materials such as asbestos can be dangerous, and failing to protect others from exposure can result in disaster. A contractor in another state has recently filed a lawsuit against environmental officials who they claim have failed to crack down on the improper disposal of asbestos.

Make no mistake, asbestos is a toxic substance

These days, there seem to be plenty of toxic substances that threaten the health of people here in Georgia and across the county. That may make hearing about a substance that is not in use as much as others are a bit confusing. Asbestos may not be used as much today as it was 40 or 50 years ago, but it continues to plague those exposed to it and still exists in older structures and products.

What medical options are available for mesothelioma?

After receiving a diagnosis of an asbestos-related disease from a Georgia doctor, you have a challenging road ahead of you. One of the first considerations is what treatment options are available. For instance, even though no cure for mesothelioma exists, some treatments may help your situation. 

Potential for botulism could lead to products liability claims

Many Georgia residents start their days with hot or cold coffee. The added kick that caffeine provides helps many people get going. Some people add cream and sugar to their coffee, and some even drink it cold, but they more than likely would not even think about adding a potentially deadly toxin to it. Unfortunately, one coffee drink, Death Wish Nitro Cold Brew, could come with a deadly toxin that may lead to products liability claims if someone ends up sick.
