Mesothelioma and Asbestos Lawsuits
As attorneys providing advocacy for those going through difficult times following the diagnosis of an asbestos-related disease, we feel it is important to educate and inform potential and current clients about asbestos and its corresponding lawsuits.
What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally-occurring, fibrous mineral once used in many products due to its strength and ability to resist heat, as well as insulate. Asbestos was used for decades in textile products, automotive parts, home and commercial buildings, naval ships, and more. If asbestos is disturbed, the fibers become airborne resulting in inhalation or ingestion. There is no “safe” level of exposure to asbestos; even minimal levels can cause the following asbestos-related diseases:
- Lung Cancer
- Other Cancers
Who is at Risk For an Asbestos-Related Disease?
Exposure to asbestos is common among those who work in the trades or do manual labor. The below are some of the common trades.
- Automobile Mechanics
- Construction Workers
- Factory Workers
- Fire Door Installers/Workers

- Refinery Workers
- Shipyard Workers
