Asbestos is the name given to a group of minerals that occur naturally as bundles of fibers, which can be separated into thin threads. Asbestos was used widely beginning around World War II. There are more than 5,000 products that contain or have contained Asbestos including, car brakes, insulation, fireproofing, roofing, siding, ceiling and floor tiles, industrial filters for beverages, etc. Asbestos exposure has been proven to cause lung cancer, asbestosis, mesothelioma, and other cancers. If you suspect that yourself or someone you know is suffering or has suffered from these medical conditions due to Asbestos exposure you may have grounds for an Asbestos Lawsuit. A lawyer specializing in Asbestos Lawsuits is familiar with the medical conditions associated with Asbestos Exposure as well as the intricacies of Asbestos Lawsuit cases. It makes sense to contact an attorney specializing in Asbestos Lawsuits rather than a regular attorney due to their knowledge of the subject.
