Were You Exposed To Asbestos? If So, You Have Rights.

Asbestos was once widely used by a variety of industries that prized it for its durability and insulation properties. We now know that asbestos fibers are extremely dangerous. An individual can develop health problems including lung cancer and mesothelioma from inhaling even a tiny fragment.

Even those never directly exposed to the material can suffer its effects as well. Secondhand exposure to family member is common. Workers exposed to asbestos often unknowingly carry loose fibers home on their clothing or safety gear.
