What is Asbestos?
Asbestos fibers were used in countless commercial and industrial products from the 1930–1970s. Asbestos was a source of insulation for pipes, fireproofing, plasters and cements, car brakes, and much more. There are a wide range of industries where the workers have a chance of experiencing more than minimal exposure to asbestos, including:
Construction projects such as home renovation, insulation installation, roofing, and cooling and heating equipment repair
Manufacturing and factory job
Auto Mechanic repair
Manufacturing products containing asbestos
Janitorial work in buildings containing asbestos
Because of its prolific use during a 40 year period, nearly every person who worked in construction or manufacturing during that time either handled asbestos or was exposed to it. Their family members could also have been exposed to asbestos if it was stuck on a worker’s clothing and brought into their house.
Injuries and Death From Asbestos Exposure
The two most common diseases resulting from asbestos exposure are asbestosis (lung inflammation that may result in difficulty breathing, coughing, and permanent lung damage) and mesothelioma (cancer that invades the lining of the chest and abdomen), although additional lung, stomach, and organ cancers have been traced to asbestos fibers as well.
These diseases can take a decade or more for the symptoms to manifest. Years after an individual’s asbestos exposure ends, a patient might develop chest cancer, abdominal cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis, or lung cancer. If you or someone you love has developed one of these cancers, other painful health problems, or was the victim of wrongful death that you believe was caused by exposure to asbestos at your job site, you deserve to understand your legal options and our experienced Orange County personal injury lawyers can help.
