Exposure to asbestos is the primary source of malignant mesotheliomas and other asbestos-related diseases such as asbestosis. Though many sources of asbestos have thankfully be removed or discontinued, the material was heavily used in many industries up until a few decades ago. Mesothelioma has a long latency period; therefore, many new patients are still learning about this disease today. When companies used asbestos, either in manufacturing or consumer goods, they knew the substance could put others at risk of disease. Their negligence in allowing its use regardless makes them responsible for the damages others have faced after being exposed to asbestos.
Chest x-rays cannot show asbestos fibers, but can detect early signs of certain lung diseases or Asbestosis. Other tests, such as lung function tests and high resolution CT scans, can also detect changes in the lungs caused by asbestos. These changes usually are not detectable until years after exposure.
Unless a material is labeled, it is difficult to determine whether it contains asbestos simply by looking at it. If you have any doubts about the material, you should treat it as if it contains asbestos, or have it sampled and analyzed by a qualified professional. A professional should take samples for analysis, because there may be an increased health risk if fibers are released.
Due to the time frame involved and the difficulty in proving asbestos exposure, bringing an asbestos claim can be a complicated affair. That’s why it’s a good idea to consult with an attorney about your legal options before moving forward. A great first step is to contact a local Asbestosis/mesothelioma attorney to for a case review to discuss your claim.
Because one of asbestos’ selling points was its durability, asbestos hazards often require manual removal. More than 30 million homes and buildings in America were built with some type of asbestos product. In fact, if you live or work in an older building, it is possible you have been exposed to asbestos, the cause of mesothelioma cancer. Complete removal of asbestos-containing materials is the only sure way to remove the risk of exposure. However, it is not safe to handle any products containing asbestos yourself. There are strict federal, state, and local laws detailing the safe handling and disposal of asbestos products. If you have questions about the rules in your state or city, we can help you understand them.
