The Dangers of Asbestos
Until the 1980s, asbestos was widely used in a number of household, automotive,
and industrial products for its fire and heat resistant properties. Individuals
who worked around asbestos or were exposed to asbestos fibers face many
health risks. Most of the time an individual will develop health problems
that can be traced back to his or her time working in an asbestos filled
environment. This harmful silicate mineral was commonly found in such
- Automotive brakes
- Ceiling tiles
- Brake pads
- Vinyl sheeting, floor tiles, and adhesives
- Thermal pipe insulation
- Acoustic or "popcorn" ceilings
- Joint compound
If you or someone you know has developed asbestos related illnesses, it

Side Effects of Exposure
One of the most prominent health risks associated with asbestos is
Mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that forms within the abdominal cavity
affecting the lungs and heart. This form of cancer can be difficult to
treat depending on the location of the cancer and how much it has spread.
As with most cancers, treatment can be very expensive. With the help and
guidance of a
personal injury lawyer, you can get legal representation to help you recover compensation
for medical costs and other damages, as well as the pain and suffering
involved in the disease.
