Asbestos

Our lawyers have an enormous amount of experience representing victims of injuries sustained from asbestos poisoning. Asbestos is a mineral made up of long, thin, pliable fibers. It is very strong and resists heat and fire. For many years, asbestos was used widely across many industries because of its durability. Some of its most common uses were in acoustical surfacing materials and insulation. Other asbestos-containing materials include brake shoes, some plastics, and electrical wire coverings. Unfortunately, asbestos is now known to cause a cancer called Mesothelioma.

While its former prevalence means that most people have come into contact with materials containing asbestos, our lawyers have noticed that people who have worked with asbestos have the highest risk of developing an asbestos-related disease. Asbestos is most dangerous to humans when it is inhaled. Because asbestos fibers are tiny, they can be easily breathed in. This mainly happened to people who worked in asbestos mines, or people who worked with products containing asbestos. Our lawyers represent clients who have suffered from the effects of asbestos.

When the fibers enter the lungs, they cause damage to the delicate air sacs by causing scar tissue to form. Although asbestos has been banned in the United States, asbestos-related illnesses often develop 15 years or more after exposure. Asbestos exposure can cause lung cancer, asbestosis (a disease in which scar tissue in the lungs causes breathing problems and infection), and mesothelioma (a type of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs or stomach). Many victims suffer each day from mesothelioma. Our attorneys are experienced in asbestos litigation and can help victims receive compensation for their pain and suffering.

The dangers of asbestos were known long before they were made public. Employees who developed either pleural mesothelioma (cancer of sac surrounding the lungs) or peritoneal mesothelioma (cancer of the sac lining the abdomen) were often told that they had lung cancer from smoking. Today, the link between asbestos exposure and disease is common knowledge. Our lawyers are dedicated to helping you fight back against corporations that took risks with your health.
