Asbestos exposure is linked to certain deadly diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, and forms of lung cancer. Even though asbestos use was phased out in the 1970s, there are approximately 3000 mesothelioma new diagnoses each year. It is unfortunate, but there is a 30 to 40 year latency period between actual asbestos exposure and the onset of the symptomology of the disease, leading to the mesothelioma diagnosis. Unfortunately, asbestos use also includes many of the workers’ families who were exposed to asbestos because the workers unknowingly brought the asbestos home. We have handled numerous cases of family members and children and grandchildren who have been exposed to asbestos dust from the dad or grandfather’s work clothes.
Most unfortunate is that asbestos causes mesothelioma, which is a very rare and deadly form of lung cancer, which can cause death within a year of being diagnosed.
