Since the 1950s, medical experts have linked exposure to asbestos to serious lung conditions. Even those who have had only limited contact with asbestos have shown comparatively high rates of lung cancer and other asbestos-related diseases, such as asbestosis and mesothelioma.
Scientific evidence indicates that the longer an individual was in contact with asbestos fibers, the higher his or her risk of developing lung cancer. Asbestos miners, those working with asbestos-containing insulation, demolition workers, automobile mechanics, factory workers, and janitors are counted among those at high risk for asbestos exposure. However, anyone who has been exposed to asbestos, even at low levels, on a regular basis may be at risk.
Because asbestos-related diseases like asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer take years or even decades to develop, it can be difficult to determine who is at fault for your exposure and then link that exposure to your disease. An experienced asbestos lawyer can help evaluate your case and establish your claim .
