WHAT IS ASBESTOS?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicate mineral with outstanding heat-resistant properties, flexibility, tensile strength, and resistance to chemicals. Due to these properties, asbestos has been used in a wide variety of products and building materials for centuries.
In the first half of the 20th century, asbestos was commonly used in the following products:
Insulation materials for buildings and ships
- Floor tiles
A COMPLEX AREA OF LAW
Asbestos and mesothelioma lawsuits are very complicated due to the long period of time between asbestos exposure and the development of your condition. It is often difficult to prove negligence with an incident that occurred decades ago. Therefore, it is crucial that you work with an experienced personal injury lawyers when seeking compensation for your damages.
Often, your claim will hinge on being able to prove that your employer knew about the hazards of asbestos exposure yet did nothing to warn you of these hazards. Such a failure to warn and protect you when you were exposed to asbestos constitutes negligence, and the company responsible for your exposure to this dangerous material may be held liable for your injuries.
If you have developed mesothelioma, lung cancer, or any other asbestos-related condition from your exposure to asbestos, the lawyers at Cullenberg & Tensen can help you receive the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses.
THE DANGERS OF ASBESTOS
Asbestos is a carcinogenic and toxic chemical. The inhalation of asbestos fibers can lead to the development of many types of cancer, particularly mesothelioma and lung cancer. For decades, a vast majority of people were unknowingly exposed to this dangerous material in the workplace. In particular, construction workers and naval officers were exposed to dangerously high levels of asbestos. Since it can take decades for asbestos-related conditions to develop, many of these people were unaware that they spent years exposed to a substance that posed a serious health risk.
