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 products as:

  • Automotive brakes
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Brake pads
  • Gaskets
  • Vinyl sheeting, floor tiles, and adhesives
  • Thermal pipe insulation
  • Acoustic or "popcorn" ceilings
  • Joint compound
  • Turbines
  • Boilers
  • Compressors

If you or someone you know has developed asbestos related illnesses, it is essential that you speak to a skilled legal team without delay. A talented and highly knowledgeable attorney can fight on your behalf to help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for the hardships you have had to endure.

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.
