We Didn’t Know Then What We Know Now

People who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma can be linked back to some form of exposure they had to asbestos.  This is the most likely scenario although there is argument that there are some mesothelioma cases where the cause is undetermined.  But, most people have no idea when and where they were exposed to asbestos, so of course if they have been diagnosed with mesothelioma then a doctor will be unable to determine a cause. 

Joyce Meyers used to help her mother do the family laundry.  This included Meyers’ father’s uniform he wore for about 22 years while working at the refinery, now owned by Exxon Mobil.  Meyers died of mesothelioma at the age of 64.  Her children have filed a claim against Exxon Mobil stating that their mother developed this lung cancer because of being exposed to the asbestos left on their grandfather’s uniform.  Meyers’ father was responsible for insulating pipes with asbestos.

The defense claims that no one could ever have predicted what exposure to asbestos could possible do to a worker let alone their family.  They believe that at that time companies followed what precautionary guidelines they were given in regard to asbestos.  These guidelines preached minimum exposure to asbestos would not be harmful.  Most companies including what was Mobil Oil back then and Exxon Mobil now, followed these guidelines.  This case is still pending.
