Asbestos Exposure Lawyer
Asbestos is a group of fibrous minerals known for their durability. They are chemical, fire and heat resistant, and do not conduct electricity, making asbestos use popular across a wide range of industries in Raleigh, NC and throughout the world.
Asbestos and Mesothelioma
Though a once popular industrial tool, asbestos is now infamous for its cancerous properties. When you inhale these fibers, your mesothelial tissues absorb them. This damages the cells and can result in tumor growth, typically in the pleural lining of the lungs, better known as Mesothelioma. Asbestos has been known to cause tumors near the heart and abdomen as well.
Asbestos exposure litigation
Many of the 3,000 Mesothelioma diagnoses (approx.) in the US each year can be traced back to work related exposure to asbestos. That’s why it is critical to identify when you were exposed. Without this information, it can be very difficult to move forward with an exposure lawsuit.
