Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 17, 2014
Within the last few decades, asbestos has garnered a bad reputation as a carcinogen, the major agent behind a rare but lethal kind of cancer called mesothelioma. As a result, the U.S. federal government has passed legislation to regulate the use of asbestos, and the silicate mineral—once a very popular building material—has been the subject of several lawsuits within the past few years. Shrader & Associates has launched a series of online tools, available on its website, that seek to clarify and inform those who may be suffering from asbestos-cased mesothelioma.
It has been argued in court that the microscopic fibers of asbestos may cause cancer when inhaled and can also cause genetic damage in the body. However, litigation has not been as simple as establishing the link between asbestos and mesothelioma. The ways in which people can come in contact with asbestos, intentional or not, can make a lawsuit complicated. It has led to some of the most peculiar decisions in U.S. litigation history.
Recent court rulings may be significant for theorizing that mesothelioma can be caused by secondary or indirect exposure, in addition to primary or direct exposure to asbestos. By extension, they may also lead future litigation to favor law firms and their clients, who may now have less pressure to prove the culpability of companies regarding the exposure to asbestos. More information is available via Shrader's online portal, which hosts a virtual database of recent verdicts and settlements.
