Which type of workers are most at risk for mesothelioma?

If you turn on the television today, it doesn't take long before you hear a commercial about the adverse effects exposure to asbestos can have on your health.

Pennsylvania Supreme Court upholds a worker's death benefits

On Monday, Nov. 27, Pennsylvania Supreme Court justices denied the consumer products manufacturer Kimberly-Clark's request to appeal an award of death benefits to the widow of one of its former employees.
