Asbestos is a fibrous mineral and a known carcinogen. For decades, it was widely used for its fire and heat-resistant properties. It is found in many products, including insulation, plumbing, and brake pads. However, people who handle asbestos and inhale its fibers are at risk of developing deadly illnesses, including mesothelioma and lung cancer.
You may be eligible for compensation if your life has been upended by exposure to asbestos. The New York mesothelioma lawyers at The Gori Law Firm fight for asbestos-exposure victims and their loved ones, and we’ve helped hundreds of clients recover compensation from the parties responsible for their sicknesses.
