Asbestos Manufacturers

One of the most tragic aspects of a mesothelioma diagnosis is the fact that the condition – and all other asbestos-related diseases – are completely preventable. Asbestos is a material that was used for a number of benefits and reasons, but one of the primary drivers was the fact that it was so inexpensive and easily accessible.

There is a significant amount of evidence to show that many of the manufacturers that used asbestos in their products and work environments were well aware of the material’s deadly impact, but chose to hide that information so that they could continue to use it in their applications and reap greater profits. They provided no warning of its dangers, and offered no protection. As a result, many of these companies have faced mesothelioma and asbestos lawsuits over the past forty years, and many have been forced into bankruptcy. Mesothelioma has become the single largest mass tort in the United States, with estimates that there have been almost 800,000 asbestos-related lawsuits in the last several decades, with compensation reaching into the billions of dollars.

It would have been far less costly for asbestos manufacturers to have provided protective clothing and warnings or to have used a more expensive substitute. Doing so would also have saved countless lives and heartache for the victims of asbestos exposure and their families.
