Re: Freewinds sealed and blue abestos confirmed I don't know any general rule that says this - I believe it's a crime to knowingly expose someone to a dangerous chemical. I do know that you have standing to sue for asbestos exposure, even if you aren't currently displaying any symptoms. Mesothelioma can take 20-50 years to manifest, and that is not the time to start a lawsuit. I know that if the CoS had exposed me to that stuff, I'd be calling a doctor now and a lawyer now+10 minutes. I'd be demanding - at the minimum - a large enough chunk of money dropped into my Health Savings Account so that any time I even think I'm going to cough, I can get it checked out.
