Asbestos Awareness Day 2010
Thursday, April 1, 2010 marks the sixth Annual Asbestos Awareness Day.
Asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma are among the terrible illnesses caused by exposure to asbestos dust and fiber. Since 1979, Schroeter, Goldmark & Bender has handled well over 1,000 asbestos injury cases, more than 325 of which were mesothelioma cases. Each new asbestos injury case furthers our resolve to fight for compensation for our clients against manufacturers, suppliers and distributors of asbestos-containing products. We have also been fighting against legislation that would keep people from obtaining compensation for their injuries. Crown, Cork & Seal is the most recent company that has tried to use the Washington Legislature to erase its liability to Washington asbestos victims. Washington residents won this time, but we anticipate other companies will continue to try to use the legislative process and bankruptcy courts to limit or erase their liability to victims of asbestos related diseases.
To further educate the public and gather support for issues regarding asbestos and asbestos related diseases, the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization has been promoting Asbestos Awareness Day over the past six years and Asbestos Awareness Week since 2008.
