Legal Representation For People Diagnosed With Asbestos Lung Cancers And Mesotheliomas

Although its use during the 20th century garners most of the attention, asbestos has been used in various products and in countries around the world for thousands of years.

In the United States, it was most widely used during the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
Considered something of a miracle product, asbestos is strong. It is flexible and easy to work with. It is resistant to both heat and flame, and it is reluctant to conduct electricity. For all these reasons, asbestos was in many ways a builder’s and manufacturer’s dream come true — and a nightmare for people diagnosed with asbestos lung cancers and mesotheliomas because they were exposed to its deadly fibers.

Common commercial and industrial asbestos products include:

  • Cement and cement products
  • Brick and block mortar
  • Building insulation
  • Roofing shingles
  • Flooring tile
  • Vinyl flooring
  • Floor leveling compound
  • Ceiling tile
  • Plaster or drywall jointing materials
  • Boiler insulation
  • Pipe insulation
  • Automotive and pipe gaskets
  • Fireproofing spray
  • Brake shoes
  • Welding blankets and screens
  • Adhesives and bonding agents

Asbestos products that may be found in the household include:

  • Hair dryers
  • Coffee makers
  • Electric blankets
  • Heat guns
  • Molding clay
  • Dry wall patch
  • Spray insulation (loose vermiculite)
  • Pipe insulation
  • Fake fireplace logs
