South Carolina has a rich industrial history, whether employing South Carolinians or generating economic growth. However, with such industrial work comes a heightened risk of asbestos exposure, a hidden danger that has tragically claimed thousands of lives throughout the state.
Many South Carolinians may be surprised to know that in 2014, South Carolina was ranked 18th in the nation for mesothelioma rates per 100,000 residents, with the port city of Charleston displaying death rates above both the state and national averages.
Life-threatening mesothelioma, asbestosis and other asbestos-related diseases can develop decades after the initial exposure, with even trace amounts of asbestos being potentially deadly if inhaled. Many of those exposed unfortunately were not warned of the dangers posed by asbestos-containing products or provided the necessary safeguards to protect themselves from toxic asbestos exposure.
