Asbestos related deaths and illness in Allegheny County higher than national average

Asbestos-related illness and deaths continue to plague residents of Allegheny County and Western Pennsylvania at rates far higher than the national average and in higher numbers than was initially assessed. This, according to a new report from the Environmental Working Group Action Fund. The group's report shows that at least 14,216 people died from asbestos-related illnesses between 1999 and 2013 here in Pennsylvania. PA is considered one of six states that have asbestos-related illness and deaths at 50% - 100% above the national average. Those other states include Maine, West Virginia, Virginia, Delaware, and Montana.

Judge denies Energy Corporation of America's appeal

Last Thursday, a federal judge from Pennsylvania denied Energy Corporation of America's (ECA) motion to overturn his judgment-a judgment that awarded nearly $912,000 to Greene County, PA landowners.

The judge contended that the plaintiffs provided enough evidence and sufficient testimony to win the case.

Pennsylvania asbestos-related illness cases

Judicial districts in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are beginning to show new trends in asbestos litigation for asbestos-related illness. Filings for asbestos cases are remaining steady in Pittsburgh and are starting to rise in Philadelphia. The difference is who those cases are being brought against.

Attorney Bill Caroselli successfully advocates for Greene County property owner against Big Oil and Gas

Big oil and gas companies do not back down to many of those whom they've worked over. Giant energy corporations have budgets for investments and when their numbers aren't reached or they think they can get away without paying out the full amount of royalties due to property owners, they will do it. This week, however, property owners from Western PA successfully held up an argument in court about not being paid full royalties and Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C. attorney, Bill Caroselli, helped them do it.

Lawsuit filed against airport over horrific bathroom slip and fall
