Can Asbestos-Related Diseases Be Predicted?

Dr Ray Harron says yes it can and he charges $125 per medical report and he can review up to 150 X-rays per day. That is a cool $18,750 for each day's review work. Who would have thought that a business of simply screening X-rays could be so lucrative? Let's be clear that the medical reports are dictated by him, typed up by his staff, and then sent off to the legal team involved.

Personally I would argue that from a purely statistical point of view there are many other ways the person can become chronically sick or die. Gunshot, RTA or air crash would seem to be some of the most obvious. How many of those who have received financial settlements from Asbestos-related torts will die from these three factors? It is quite possible that many of them will. Other diseases including heart attacks, strokes, obesity will also be the cause of many deaths.

What can an individual who has lost his business, because of asbestos claims, do when the majority of those who claimed, never contracted an asbestos-related disease or cancer? The person who made the claim could easily be dead and then there is no claim! Wait a minute, could there be a claim on the dead person's estate that they have received money under false pretenses? What about the attorneys who pressed the claims of their clients to the letter of the law. Are there any grounds for them being sued by defense lawyers who lost money and clients due to their tactics? Are we being hard? No. The businesses that are bankrupt could have employed people in the current recession but the opportunity for this has been snatched away from them. Anger and bitterness can eat people up until they can do something about it.
