What do real estate and mesothelioma treatment have in common?

What could real estate and the treatment of mesothelioma possibly have in common? Apparently, location matters. According to a study from the United Kingdom, outcomes varied significantly among six hospitals. Researchers suggest that the hospital's level of experience with the disease is a major contributing factor to that difference.

Legislation protecting asbestos offenders moving through Congress

In February, we wrote that asbestos offenders are going on the offensive by proposing a bill called the Furthering Asbestos Claim Transparency Act, or FACT. The name of the bill would suggest that companies who have exposed workers to harmful asbestos would be required to disclose that information and to help former workers seek medical attention. There are about 12,000 deaths each year in the United States from asbestos-related diseases, including mesothelioma.

Jury: Asbestos-tainted talcum powder caused woman's mesothelioma

A Los Angeles jury did not reach the question of punitive damages in a recent trial, but the personal care product and cosmetic industry got the message all the same. The jury had already awarded a 73-year-old woman $13 million in damages after just two hours of deliberation. The defendant manufacturer, Colgate-Palmolive Co., quickly moved to work out a confidential settlement with the plaintiff and, so, avoided getting even more bad news.
