What is the cost of a wrongful death?

There is no dollar value on a human life. It is tragic for families and communities when someone has their life cut short by a preventable illness or accident. In a lawsuit against a company or person who caused the death of another, however, a jury must decide the dollar amount awarded to surviving family. It is difficult, and many factors go into the dollar amount. In this post, we will discuss who can bring a wrongful death claim, what factors go into deciding the amount awarded and why family members can find solace in a successful claim.

Improper asbestos removal of popcorn ceiling endangers workers

OnTrack, the addiction recovery organization, has been fined nearly $20,000 for improperly exposing workers to asbestos.

Better sleep for a better mind: Treating depression with sleep

Can you sue a drug manufacturer for an overdose?

Lung cancer doesn’t just affect smokers

Lung cancer remains the leading cause of death for all cancers, according to the American Cancer Society. About 14 percent of all new cancers are lung cancers. The prognosis for lung cancer remains bleak if diagnosed at stage 3 or 4. If detected earlier, the prognosis is much better – meaning people should be aware of the signs and symptoms of lung cancer.

Asbestos is everywhere, in products old and new

For nearly a century, product manufacturers saw asbestos as a substance with almost miraculous properties. It does not burn. It is non-corrosive. It does not react with other compounds. It has sound-deadening properties. It is easy to use in any shape or application. It is cheap to produce. This last factor, as much as any other, is why manufacturers ignored the medical community for decades in using a substance that sickens and kills the people who are exposed to it.
