Asbestos & Mesothelioma
Asbestos is a building material that was commonly used a few decades ago because of its fire-retardant properties. It was believed that buildings made using this material would be safer, but many people who moved into homes and offices that made use of asbestos soon found that the material was highly toxic. Workers who handled asbestos and residents in homes built with asbestos materials began developing serious lung ailment. Florida lawyers have been representing clients for year in order to hold asbestos manufacturers and others responsible for asbestos-related injuries and illnesses.
One of the most common illnesses that asbestos exposure can cause is known as Mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that usually affects the membrane lining of the stomach or lungs. Currently, almost all cases of this cancer in the US are linked to asbestos exposure. There are 2 000 to 3 000 people diagnosed with Mesothelioma annually in this country and the number of Mesothelioma sufferers seems to be increasing.
Mesothelioma tends to occur suddenly and can progress quickly. Usually, it appears only decades after a person has been exposed to asbestos. This can make proving asbestos exposure difficult. Qualified Florida attorneys, like the team and Flaxman Law Group have successfully represented Mesothelioma victims and have professional investigative help that can help pinpoint when asbestos exposure occurred.
Mesothelioma wreaks havoc on lives and families, and, sadly, it is a very preventable form of cancer.
