Companies that sold asbestos-containing products exposed people for years, even though many were aware of dangerous side effects such as a deadly form of cancer called mesothelioma.
Asbestos is a mined mineral used for insulation and heat resistance in building construction. These products can release fibers that find their way to a person’s lungs and can cause cancer, asbestosis, scarring, impairment or restriction of the lungs, and fibrosis.
People seeking compensation for developing mesothelioma have to deal with certain legal hurdles including:
- Identifying the manufacturer of the asbestos-containing product
- Identifying the year and location of exposure
- Providing a testimony attesting to the exposure of asbestos
- Completing a medical examination by a board certified expert
- Pulmonary testing
