Who Is To Blame?

Asbestos manufacturers and distributors knew full well the deadly health risk of asbestos exposure. They continued to sell it anyway, putting their profits ahead of workers’ lives. Negligent companies worked together to hide and conceal the truth about asbestos. When the medical evidence became irrefutable, asbestos manufacturers were forced to pay billions of dollars in legal compensation to current and future asbestos victims.
