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. This scarring can cause difficulty breathing, and you might hear a dry, cracking sound when taking deep breaths. Asbestos has been known to cause tumors near the heart and abdomen as well, which may cause a loss of appetite or weight loss.

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. While many people affected by asbestos were exposed at their job, you can also be affected by working near an area which used asbestos. That’s why it is critical to identify when and where you were exposed. Without this information, it can be very difficult to move forward with an exposure lawsuit.

Hiring an attorney for your Mesothelioma claim
