I am always shocked when I hear stories about corporations knowingly releasing products that contain toxic chemicals as part of their formula. How could anyone with any amount of human decency knowingly expose their customers to products that will harm or kill them. One story I hear over and over again is about people being exposed to Asbestos, which is linked to very aggressive form of lung cancer called Mesothelioma. This cancer attacks the membrane that protects the lungs and liver and once it begins it grows very aggressively. Another form of Asbestos poisoning is asbestosis, which also effects the lungs, causing shortness of breath and eventually lung failure. Asbestos was used for decades in the manufacturing of insulation and cement and as such the risk is real as many renovation projects still have this type of product in them. As the renovation or demolition occurs the Asbestos is released and exposure occurs. It is vital to anyone performing this type of work to take the appropriate precautions to ensure their safety. As many of the companies that manufactured with Asbestos have gone bankrupt settling with people affected by their product it is difficult to receive compensation from Asbestos exposure, it is very important to find yourself a specialized Mesothelioma Lawyer that is experienced in working with these types of cases.
