Asbestos was once thought to be a magical substance that could strengthen and fireproof any number of products. In particular, parts of steam engines for railroads and boats were often extensively covered in asbestos, and that likely saved thousands of people from dying in fires. Unfortunately, asbestos was eventually proven to have other serious side effects. The use of asbestos has since been greatly reduced, but it is still in use in some places and many people are just now realizing they suffered exposure years ago.

Dangers of Asbestos

“Asbestos” is actually the common name for several different types of naturally-occurring minerals. These minerals are made up of very fine fibers that are resistant to heat, fire, acid, and friction. Pipes and electrical wiring were often wrapped in insulation containing asbestos. It was also woven into fireproof materials like paint, fire curtains, and protective gloves. It even found its way into some roof shingles, ceiling tiles, flooring, brake pads, and insulation. Asbestos exposure probably peaked around World War II, when it seemed like the world could not get enough of it. At the time, much of the world’s asbestos was produced in Canada and it was so important that America had plans in place to move in and defend the Canadian asbestos mines if the country was ever attacked.

Over time, doctors became more and more convinced that there was a link between cancer and asbestos. By the 1960s, cancer, and in particular mesothelioma, were strongly linked to asbestos through numerous studies and follow up clinical trials. Government agencies like the World Health Organization condemned its use and U.S. government agencies like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and Environmental Protection Agency began to take action to reduce exposure in the 1970s.

Many countries around the world have banned asbestos, but America still has not. In fact, the EPA has a list of items that can be sold in America with asbestos in them. This includes cement, clothing, roofing felt, transmission components, brake pads, and roof coatings. The use of asbestos has gone way, way down in America, but most people do not realize it is still used legally today. In fact, many are surprised to learn that Canada was still mining for asbestos in 2011, through the country is now working to implement a full ban. That makes American law closer to Russia than the rest of the world, as Russia is one of the few countries that continues to mine for and use asbestos.

Who Is Liable For St. Louis Mesothelioma Cancer Claims?

Because asbestos was exposed as such a health risk, many of the companies dealing in asbestos have gone bankrupt. In the process, many were required to set up trust funds to pay compensation to victims. These trusts often have specialized procedures for assessing and paying claims. The claims are challenging because of the long latency period and unclear damage. For example, nearly every sailor in the Navy in World War II was likely exposed to asbestos at some point. Many likely feared they would develop mesothelioma at some point in their lives, but symptoms can take 20 to 50 years to appear. The asbestos companies and their trust funds have resisted speculative payouts, though
