Fighting for Victims of Asbestos Exposure Nationwide

Lung cancer happens when healthy cells in the lung mutate. There are two main types of lung cancer: small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. The primary types of non-small cell lung cancer are adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. There are different methods of treatment for lung cancer depending on the type and stage of the cancer.

There are several causes of lung cancer. The most common cause is exposure to dangerous substances that we breathe, like asbestos. If you smoked and were exposed to asbestos you are 50 times more likely to develop a lung cancer. Even if you smoked you are still eligible to receive compensation. People who worked around asbestos were not normally aware they were being exposed to the deadly dust. Asbestos fibers are so small they are invisible to the human eye.

Asbestos exposure was common in the workplace as a result of asbestos being used in thousands of building products. It was used in walls, ceilings, floors, insulation, automotive brakes, and gaskets. Industrial plants used it on tanks, boilers, piping, and structural elements. Asbestos exposure suffered by workers and their families can lead to disease 20 to 50 years later.

The companies manufacturing and selling asbestos-containing products were aware of these safety hazards but chose not to warn people, consequently exposing countless workers and families to deadly asbestos dust.
