A number of people have been calling for changes to be made to mesothelioma laws in the state of Indiana, stating that workers need to have more time to make a compensation claim against those that exposed them to the deadly carcinogenic, asbestos, which can cause asbestos cancer as well as a range of other serious health problems.

One of the people that is campaigning for these changes is Dorothy Kuykendall who claims to have been exposed to asbestos when working at a factor some decades ago. She said that she always thought that she would be able to take care of her older husband in his later years but that this was not going to happen.

She stated: “My husband is 13 years older than I am, and I was sure I would be able to take care of him until he died, but that’s not going to happen. He’s caring for me, and with all my medical bills, I’m afraid he won’t have enough income to live in our home.”

Another woman that is campaigning for the changes to the law said: “Jim was a husband, a father and a grandfather. I am angry with my state, that the state sees no value in my husband’s life and death or the economic hardships our family now suffers. On behalf of all the other families who have lost loved ones to this awful disease, I beg you to recognize us and at least have a chance to find out who is responsible for what happened.”
