The dangers of asbestos

For decades, boilermakers, pipe fitters, construction workers, ship builders and other workers used asbestos on the job. Popular as for its fiber strength and its ability to resist heat, asbestos can also cause mesothelioma. Unfortunately, this was only exposed as dangerous in the mid 1970s and regulation of this hazardous substance did not happen until the mid-1980s.

Statistics show that up to 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma in the U.S. each year. In most cases, symptoms do not appear for decades, and diagnoses often happen 30 to 50 years after the patient's initial exposure to asbestos. This form of cancer is very aggressive and difficult to treat. The typical prognosis is just a few months after diagnosis. If you or a loved one has this type of cancer, trust our attorneys to protect your rights.
