With so much new construction around us these days, many people think that asbestos exposure is a thing of the past. But unfortunately, this dangerous carcinogen is still around and continues to cause illness and death.
Asbestos has commonly been used in construction for fire-proofing, roofing, insulation, and sound-proofing. It is actually found in nature and all of us are exposed to it at some point in our lives, but increased or constant exposure can elevate the chances of developing cancer, most commonly mesothelioma. Other adverse health effects of asbestos are damage to the lining of the lungs, breathing problems, and lung cancer.
If you think you have breathed in asbestos fibers, try to stay calm, and see a medical professional right away. Cases concerning asbestos and mesothelioma can be extremely complicated, so it is very important to speak with an experienced lawyer.
