What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous mineral that has been used in many manufactured goods, including brake linings, tiles, gaskets, roofing, insulation, bricks, cement and fire-resistant coatings.
The asbestos fibers in products may be released as dust, float in the air, be inhaled or swallowed. For many decades, workers in many industries were exposed to asbestos, including:
- Construction and building trades
- Glass production
- Chemical manufacturing
What Is Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that affects the mesothelial tissue, which surrounds the lungs and other internal organs. Although mesothelioma most often develops in the tissue surrounding the lungs, it can also appear in the tissues surrounding the abdomen, heart and testis areas.
Mesothelioma is often caused by exposure to asbestos. It may take decades for mesothelioma to develop, up to 20 to 50 years. If you or a loved one was exposed to asbestos years ago and was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma, please talk to a lawyer about your legal options.
