The Dangers Of Asbestos Exposure
We have known that prolonged exposure to asbestos is dangerous and potentially fatal for over 100 years. Federal regulations were put in place limit its use and regulate safety procedures, but companies continued to use the material, especially in the construction of buildings. Once introduced to the lungs, asbestos creates inflammation and scarring that allows cancer cells to grow and mesothelioma to develop.
Asbestos exposure is common for:
- Construction and renovation workers (commercial buildings especially)
- Workers dealing with boilers and insulated pipes
- Members of the Navy
- Teachers and other school workers
- Anyone frequently around those exposed to asbestos (like family)
While treatment of mesothelioma has advanced, it is still an aggressive cancer that requires intensive treatment to combat and recover from. If you have been diagnosed and asbestos exposure is to blame, you may be eligible for compensation via a personal injury claim.
