Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in Florida is important because it means we are familiar with Florida job sites where asbestos exposure occurred.
Asbestos is a deadly mineral that has been used in thousands of products in multiple industries. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested they increase a person’s risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma.
Florida, a popular retirement destination, is home to a mature population. Many of its older residents first exhibiting mesothelioma symptoms in their 50’s or later were likely exposed to asbestos from jobs they held decades ago.
Construction jobs have traditionally factored heavily in Florida’s growing economy over the decades, and the construction industry is among those industries with the highest mesothelioma rates. At thousands of job sites across the U.S., including sites in and around the state of Florida, day laborers and other workers have been exposed to asbestos as part of their daily routine, placing their health, their lives, and even their families’ lives in potential danger.
The difficult part is asbestos fibers are often microscopic and many workers might not know how they were exposed. If you are unsure about how your asbestos exposure might have occurred that does not mean you can’t file a mesothelioma lawsuit. Our experienced attorneys have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures, even exposures in other states, and they are ready to help you and your family as well. Our firm has an established track record of success in identifying work places in Florida and throughout the country that may have used asbestos.
