An Honest Look at the Dark and Troubled History of Asbestos

An Honest Look at the Dark and Troubled History of Asbestos

This page hosts the award-winning and must-see documentary for anyone affected by asbestos. America’s workers continue to suffer and die from asbestosis, mesothelioma and a number of asbestos related diseases entirely because of corporate greed. Sponsored by Brent Coon and Associates, you can now see the full documentary about the greatest tragedy of America’s workers.

“I’ve been training state employees and contractors on the dangers of asbestos and on asbestos remediation for over 15 years. I’m always looking for new materials to improve my training course and when I came across The Asbestos Story produced by Brent Coon & Associates, I knew I found something special. The documentary offers a unique perspective on the asbestos industry that I had not seen before. It is informative, well-produced, and provocative. It’s abundantly clear after viewing this video that the attorneys at BCA are highly knowledgeable on the asbestos industry.”

​- John M. Barrett, Jr., President of Scientific Investigation & Instruction Institute (Si3)

For over a century, corporations knew about the horrible consequences of working with asbestos and chose to keep quiet while knowing this silence would send tens of thousands of innocent workers to their death. Let’s review some of the key milestones in this shameful timeline as the truth about asbestos is moved from a secret and into public awareness and consciousness.
The attorneys at Brent Coon & Associates have dedicated our professional lives to helping the families affected by asbestos. We have seen so many communities devastated by asbestos exposure that occurred on the job.​ We chose to sponsor this documentary and the content contained on this site in hope something like this will never be able to happen again.
