Today, it is widely understood that asbestos is an extremely harmful substance. However, this was not always the case.
In 1918, The United States Department of Labor issued a bulletin stating that there was an "urgent need for more qualified extensive investigation" into the severe harm caused by asbestos. Nevertheless, many industries kept using asbestos.
For decades, Michigan construction workers, vehicle mechanics, shipyard workers, electricians, and others employed in the building trades did not realize the danger, as they were exposed to asbestos on a daily basis. Even now, Michigan workers renovating or demolishing old buildings may encounter asbestos.
The danger was not limited those who directly handled the asbestos. If a Michigan worker had substantial exposure to asbestos, his or her co-worker or spouse also was vulnerable to asbestos-related illness.
Eventually scientific research confirmed the life-threatening risks caused by exposure to airborne asbestos fibers. However, companies still ignored the danger, and continued to make and use products containing asbestos. Some of these businesses were located in Michigan, and many residents of this state now suffer from asbestos-related illnesses.
If you or a loved one suffer from asbestos related cancer or mesothelioma cancer, talk with an experienced Michigan asbestos lawyer today. Please submit a simple, free and confidential legal consultation form now.
