The vast majority of harm caused by asbestos use in the United States was entirely preventable.
As early as the first century, asbestos products were suspected to cause health problems, and as asbestos use grew throughout the twentieth century, the negative effects of asbestos exposure became more and more apparent. Doctors began to link asbestos exposure to a variety of lung diseases.
If you believe you have asbestos products in your home, please contact one of our asbestos attorneys for advice on extraction companies in your area. Never try to remove asbestos products on your own.
