Asbestos Laws

Although state and federal governments have established statutes to regulate the use of asbestos, many occupational and household cases of asbestos exposure continue to cause dangerous asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma or asbestosis. The asbestos laws work to protect those who have been exposed to the dangerous substance and wish to seek compensation for their suffering. Diagnosis of these diseases does not end favorably in most cases and many victims are only given a year to live after the initial diagnosis. Asbestos was an acceptable and commonly used substance in the 1940s, 50s, 60s and even 70s, however, scientists and doctors have come to understand that the material is deadly to those who were exposed to it for long periods of time.

In the workplace, asbestos laws state that the acceptable level of asbestos is 0.1 fibers per cubic centimeter in a 30-minute time period. The laws also require employers to test for asbestos exposure levels, as well as provide employees with protective clothing and equipment, hygienic work areas, and adequate training on how to work with materials that contain asbestos.

If you have been exposed to asbestos due to occupational conditions or the use of household products containing the substance, contact an attorney immediately to discuss your legal options. You may be eligible to seek damages for past and future medical bills, lost income, loss of potential earnings, pain and suffering, and more. If your employer has not followed the state and federal regulations passed to protect workers from asbestos exposure, it is your legal right to organize a lawsuit against your negligent employer.Contact the Mesothelioma Lawyers today to learn more about your rights.
