Description

Asbestos testing companies screen likely candidates to determine whether or not their lungs have been affected. This series of articles finds that these companies hire workers who are underqualified to perform tests and that they are driven by profits to diagnose as many people as possible with lung damage because they work for or are paid by lawyers who benefit from the cases. One concern is that those who file with little to no illness are depleting the sources of money for those with serious asbestos damage.
