LegalView Warns of Increased Risk of Asbestos Exposure in Aftermath of Environmental Storms and Destruction

Share Article

LegalView updated mesothelioma blog readers to the severe consequences that may exist in the aftermath of environmental destruction such as tornadoes or storms. LegalView specifically reminded Kansas victims to be aware of the risk for asbestos exposure associated with cleaning up debris after a severe storm season, which left homes and buildings damaged.

LegalView, the number one resource for everything legal on the Internet, informed mesothelioma blog readers of the preexisting dangers that can be associated with removing or disposing of debris that is left in the wake of natural disasters like storms and tornadoes. Victims in Kansas, who recently suffered from a series of severe storms, were left with massive amounts of debris in areas of the state that could be tainted with asbestos. Those who may have already been exposed to asbestos-tainted fibers should seek medical care immediately. Additionally, these individuals should consider locating a mesothelioma attorney in their area in case a mesothelioma lawsuit becomes a necessary step to potentially recoup medical costs or garner compensation for pain and suffering.

According to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), precautions must be taken when removing and disposing of debris because many homes constructed prior to the 1980s could have been built with materials containing asbestos. Individuals are advised to wear respirators, gloves, coveralls and hardhats, and to immediately shower and wash after contact with debris to wash away any dust or fibers that may later become airborne and inhaled through the lungs. However, if an individual feels they may have been exposed to asbestos fibers through cleaning up wreckage, it may be important for them to seek medical attention as well as to find a mesothelioma law firm. Not only mesothelioma lawyers provide reassurance about potential asbestos-related litigation, but an experienced lawyer will be able to offer mesothelioma information and resources to better understand the condition.

Mesothelioma is a deadly form of lung cancer that is caused through the inhalation of asbestos fibers and dust that have become airborne. Once inhaled, the fibers cause the creation of cancerous cells on the lining of the lungs. Mesothelioma usually remains dormant for years and even decades - individuals infected are often unaware of their deadly condition. For more information on mesothelioma, readers can visit LegalView's mesothelioma information portal. Victims of asbestos exposure will find an array of information ranging from treatment options to stories from victims to the latest jury verdicts on mesothelioma litigation. Additionally, readers can find other resources on list of legal issues through LegalView's issue library.

LegalView continually updates information portals with the latest news to provide readers with a breadth of research that can be found nowhere else on the Web. Most recently, LegalView remains committed to three pharmaceutical issues affecting millions of Americans throughout the country. These issues include information on the prescription drugs Digitek, Chantix and Singulair.

The prescription drug, Digitek digoxin, is prescribed to patients suffering from congestive heart failure and other heart arrhythmia conditions. The drug was recently recalled after a manufacturing error caused batches of the drug to be sent out containing double the appropriate level of ingredients. Because of the potentially toxic doses of digoxin that may have been given to individuals, it is important for those affected to contact an experienced pharmaceutical lawyer to learn about the details of developing a Digitek lawsuit.

While both prescription drugs Chantix and Singulair treat very different conditions, each has been subject to investigation and controversy over similar risks relating to depression, erratic behaviors, moodiness, and suicidal tendencies and actions. Chantix is a smoking cessation drug that has been prescribed to millions of Americans, however, in late 2007, reports of these risks surfaced and individuals taking the drug began to question the potential for a Chantix lawsuit that might provide compensation for individuals who suffered while taking this drug. Similarly, Singulair, which treats asthma and allergy symptoms, had a number of reports from patients who were affected with the Singulair side effects that also may have included suicidal thoughts among patients.
