LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ASBESTOS LAWYERS
Asbestos is a hazardous, cancer-causing material that can lead to dangerous health issues. Examples of these health issues are lung cancer, mesothelioma, and pleural disorders like asbestosis. During the 1970s and 1980s, its toxicity became evident as exposure led to thousands of Americans’ deaths and an untold number of others at risk.
Even though it’s a known toxic substance, asbestos is still not banned in the United States. Despite efforts of institutions such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Occupational Safety Hazard Administration (OSHA) to protect American workers’ health. Legislative action continues to be shot down in favor of asbestos producers. The last effort to ban this dangerous substance was in 1991. The United States Fifth Circuit Appeal Court in New Orleans struck down most of the Asbestos Ban and Phase-Out Rule. However, since then, no successful move has been made in banning asbestos in the United States.
Asbestos may affect you and your loved one in more ways than you think. If you have previously worked with asbestos, it is important you and your family discuss your situation with a medical professional as soon as possible.
If you have worked with asbestos and you think there is any chance of exposure. The following articles are available to you to gain a better sense of this toxic substance. These articles highlight ways a person could contact this harmful substance and the consequence of such exposure. Our best asbestos lawyers are ready to process your claim.
ASBESTOS AND MESOTHELIOMA
Mesothelioma is a rare cancer affecting the lining of the body’s internal organs. This disease occurs due to the inhalation of asbestos fibers. Asbestos can be found all over the world and is a popular material used in many industries. This dangerous mineral is used for its ability to conduct and control heat. Even after several studies showing the dangers of this mineral, asbestos remains on the market.
Asbestos can cause other disorders such as lung cancer and asbestosis. People who develop these conditions have just as much right as mesothelioma victims to file a legal claim.
