Florida Asbestos Lawyer

Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that occurs naturally. For most of the last century, asbestos was mined and used in a variety of household, industrial and building products. Asbestos was used extensively because it is resistant to heat, fire, chemical and biological degradation.

Asbestos is made up of bundles of thin, separable fibers that have parallel arrangement. When asbestos is handled, cut or abraded, these bundles break down into millions of tiny fibers that become airborne. Once the tiny fibers are airborne they are dangerous because they are easily breathed into the lungs. The presence of asbestos fibers in the air can be hard to detect, because the fibers are microscopic and have no odor or taste. A knowledgeable Florida Injury Lawyer in the Asbestos Claims subject will assist you to successfully litigate these cases.

Asbestos fibers are virtually indestructible. Once inhaled, the asbestos fibers can cause respiratory problems, including mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. Usually it takes at least 15 years from the time someone is exposed to asbestos until they develop mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer. This is called the latent period. In some persons, the latent period may be as long as 60 or more years from first exposure to asbestos. A skilled Florida Lawyer in the Asbestos Claims area will fight for you.

Although it was no secret among asbestos manufacturers, the harmful effects of mesothelioma were not widely publicized until the early 1970s. Today, asbestos usage is heavily regulated in the United States. Its use has ceased here in all but a few closely monitored products and industries.

However, for more than a century asbestos was widely used in the United States in industrial applications for its insulating and fireproofing properties. Asbestos diseases including mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer arise from continuing exposure to airborne microscopic asbestos fibers. The most common sources of asbestos exposure are work in commercial and domestic construction, especially installing insulation, work in shipyards, and in service aboard naval or commercial ships. Even family members of asbestos workers were often exposed to levels of asbestos sufficient to trigger mesothelioma. A professional Florida Personal Injury Lawyer in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully take legal action for you.

Since the 1920's, companies that mined and manufactured asbestos products knew that it presented serious health hazards for their workers. Senior company officers conspired to suppress that information, preventing workers, and even their own managers from knowing the dangers of working with this lethal material. Because of that conspiracy, workers with mesothelioma and other asbestos-caused cancers have important legal rights to compensation from the companies whose negligence and disregard for their safety has harmed them.
