Asbestos lawyers at Arentz Law Group are standing by and ready to assist victims who developed lung cancer, mesothelioma, or asbestosis after exposure to asbestos.
Asbestos refers to a set of six naturally occurring fibrous minerals: chrysotile, crocidolite, amosite, anthophyllite, tremolite, and actinolite. The nature of these silicate minerals makes the fibers are resistant to heat, fire, and chemicals. They also do not conduct electricity. When the fiber bundles are separated into nimble threads, they are ideal (or so once thought) for a wide array of commercial and industrial uses. Consequently, it was once used extensively for insulation purposes.
However, asbestos is known to cause lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma. The majority of the exposures happened on the job where the employer failed to warn employees of the danger. However, recently individuals have also come forward after developing mesothelioma from exposure to talcum powder. Colgate Palmolive has recently started settling these types of cases, and a growing number are pending against Johnson & Johnson.
