Mesothelioma Lawsuits:  Hoist Products


Workers and laborers who used Hoist products that contained asbestos may have unknowingly breathed or ingested tiny asbestos particles that may be affecting their health. Asbestos becomes dangerous when it is airborne. People installing, removing or replacing asbestos containing products are most at risk of developing an asbestos disease in their lifetime. Asbestos fibers can be smaller than .03 microns which is hard to see without a microscope.

Thousands of asbestos-containing products and materials were used throughout all States. More than 20 million American workers have been exposed to asbestos with the heaviest usage in the U. S. was during 1930-1980. Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers can lay dormant in people for 10-50 years.

Hoist Products and Asbestos Exposure

Millions of Americans were exposed to toxic asbestos fibers and dust from more than 3,000 asbestos-containing products and materials. Many of these products still exist in in old buildings, residential homes, shopping centers, churches, industrial plants, factories, power plants, chemical plants, refineries, shipyards and manufacturing plants.

Asbestos dust is most dangerous when inhaled or ingested. During 1930-1980 many U. S. workers were daily exposed to toxic asbestos dust and fibers where they inhaled and ingested them without any protection in their workplace.

Patients diagnosed with Mesothelioma have complained that they were not given any warning, training or respiratory protective gear when handling, installing, loading, repairing, or removing asbestos-containing products when using them in many building trades.

Workers diagnosed with Mesothelioma from toxic exposure to asbestos containing hoist products and materials may be eligible for financial compensation with the help of an experienced Mesothelioma lawyer.

Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma

Asbestos manufacturers knew as far back as the early 1920’s that asbestos caused asbestosis and the first case of Malignant Mesothelioma was definitively linked to asbestos exposure in workers and laborers in 1964.

More than 600,000 asbestos and Mesothelioma cases have been brought against asbestos manufacturers and distributors, claiming the companies failed to protect workers and laborers from harmful asbestos contamination, and failed to warn workers about health risks.

The World health Organization reported that there have been 92,253 mesothelioma deaths (and counting) reported by 83 countries.

Mesothelioma cancer has 4 stages and rarely diagnosed in stages 1 and 2 because it looks like many other diseases like COPD, a chronic cough, the flu and pneumonia. If you have a history of work-related asbestos exposure you should be checked each year by a qualified doctor.

Military Veterans and Asbestos Exposure


Veterans Mesothelioma LawyersMilitary Veterans have a 1 in 3 chance of developing an asbestos related disease in their lifetime. Veterans and laborers have the right to bring lawsuits against negligent asbestos companies for exposing them to toxic asbestos-containing products and materials.

There are 21.5 million current living Veterans according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans who served between 1940 and 1970 have the greatest risk of developing Mesothelioma or an asbestos-related cancer. Navy Veterans who served during World War II and the Korean War have the highest incidence of Asbestos-related diseases.

The U.S. Military used thousands of asbestos-containing products in their ships between the 1920-late 1970’s. 14 in every 1,000 WW II shipyard workers died of an asbestos-related disease compared to 18 in every 1,000 combat related deaths.

  • Mesothelioma primarily occurs in Veterans between the ages of 55-75.
  • Asbestos was listed as the top contaminant at 32 U.S. Army base closures during the 1990s.
  • A recent study showed that as many as 30-40% of Mesothelioma victims is U. S. Veterans.

Evidence Required to File for an Asbestos claim may Include:

  • Diagnosis– Medical documentation (pathology reports).
  • Physician Statement– From a qualified physician regarding Mesothelioma diagnosis.
  • Exposure Evidence– Product information, witness affidavits, employment records, invoices.

Asbestos Cover up – Quotes from Asbestos Executives

Evidence in thousands of court documents have shown that asbestos companies hid and destroyed memos, documents and ignored doctor’s medical reports about the dangers of asbestos exposure. Despite all of the information about the deadly dangers of asbestos exposure available in the scientific and medical literature asbestos companies chose not to take any action to protect workers.

They chose profit over the safety of their workers and then lied and covered it up. This is why U. S. Courts are making asbestos manufacturers and companies pay millions to asbestos victims for their asbestos cover up.

  • “…if you have enjoyed a good life while working with asbestos products, why not die from it.” 1966 memo from an executive of the Bendix Corporation (now part of Honeywell)
  • In early 1940s, the president of Johns-Manville called the managers of another company a bunch of fools for notifying employees who had asbestosis.” When asked by another company executive, Do you mean to tell me you would let them work until they drop dead? he responded, “Yes. We save a lot of money that way.”

Mesothelioma has been medically linked to workplace asbestos exposure.
