Our Experienced Mesothelioma Lawyers Efficiently Pursue Asbestos Litigation
Asbestos-containing products were widely used in the United States for more than a century. While asbestos has outstanding insulation and fire-proofing properties, exposure to its airborne fibers can cause diseases like mesothelioma, asbestosis, and certain cancers.
Asbestos Companies’ Decades of Lies
Companies that mined and manufactured asbestos products have been aware of the health hazards since the 1920s but avoided alerting the public for decades. As a result, individuals who develop mesothelioma and other asbestos-linked diseases have legal rights to compensation from the companies who disregarded their safety.
Asbestos exposure commonly occurred during work in commercial and domestic construction, especially installing insulation, work in shipyards, and in service aboard ships. Family members of those workers were also exposed to levels of asbestos that often led to their development of deadly diseases.
Mesothelioma and asbestos-related illnesses are typically slow-growing. Symptoms may first appear decades after initial exposure. By the time a diagnosis is established, the disease may have progressed to the point where the victim may not have much time left.
