Attorneys Advocating For Victims Of Asbestos Exposure Nationwide

The word asbestos comes from an ancient word meaning unquenchable. While that meaning does not fit with the fire-resistant properties that made asbestos so popular, it perfectly describes the damage done by asbestos products over the years.

Sadly, corporate greed and negligence has led to an overwhelming flood of illnesses and deaths caused by asbestos exposure. At The Gori Law Firm, our team of skilled lawyers is committed to helping the victims of mesothelioma and other forms of asbestos-related cancer.

The Long And Troubled History Of Asbestos In The U.S.

Asbestos was known to have deadly effects more than a century ago. Despite that, asbestos consumption continued to rise in the United States and throughout the world until the 1970s.

Contrary to popular belief, asbestos is still not completely banned the U.S. In fact, you can find asbestos in a wide range of everyday products, from floor tiles and roof shingles to brake pads and even clothing. While asbestos is no longer mined in the U.S., asbestos exposure is still an ongoing problem.

Asbestos exposure cases have been found in locations all over the globe. Exposure was particularly common in certain industries and among military personnel. In some cases, individuals have even developed asbestos-related illnesses after a family member brought the dangerous fibers home from work on his or her clothing, which is known as secondary exposure. While not everyone who is exposed develops cancer, the risk is present for many.
