LegalView Reports Family's Loss of Father Who Died of Asbestos Diseases

October 08, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Denver, CO - recently informed mesothelioma information blog readers of a family's loss because of asbestos related conditions. The man, Omar Phillips, whose family is currently seeking damages from his former employer, worked as a pipe fitter and a welder at which time he was allegedly exposed to deadly levels of asbestos fibers. Phillips died of lung cancer and has allegedly been exposed to toxic levels of asbestos without warning of the dangers of the fibers or ensuring safety precautions were taken. His family is seeking compensatory damages against Exxon Mobil after having filed a lawsuit (case no. D182-349) in the 136th District Court. Individuals who feel they may also be at risk for developing asbestos related illnesses such as mesothelioma, should contact an experienced mesothelioma attorney to better understand the legalities surrounding the risks for developing the deadly condition.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed regulations for the safe removal of asbestos because once the particles become airborne they become an extremely dangerous risk for anyone nearby. Those who may have developed mesothelioma cancer should not only contact a physician but may want to contact a mesothelioma law firm as well that can provide a variety of knowledgeable mesothelioma lawyers to choose from in the event that a mesothelioma lawsuit needed to be created.

Cimzia, which is an immunosuppressant, is part of a family of drugs known as TNF blockers or TNF inhibitors. The drugs treat a variety of conditions including juvenile and rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease. However, the FDA recently launched an investigation into the TNF blockers after several serious side effects came to light regarding the drugs. Some of the Cimzia side effects include the development of cancer among young adults and children patients as well as developing fatal infections among certain populations of patients. The FDA has announced it will increase the labeling of the drug, but no recall has been issued for any of the drugs, which include Humira, Remicade and Enbrel.
