Asbestos Litigation

Asbestos is a mineral that, through inhalation, can cause a number of respiratory diseases, including a potentially serious lung fibrosis called asbestosis, lung cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, and mesothelioma that occurs in the chest and abdominal cavities. Asbestos-containing products were frequently used in various construction products before its severe health effects were discovered. Asbestos-related illnesses generally involve toxic tort, construction, and product liability areas of law. Asbestos litigation involves issues of negligence, strict liability, and compensation for the injuries and damages that have been done to the victim.
