Mesothelioma Attorneys Lewis & Scholnick
Mesothelioma attorneys Lewis & Scholnick specialize in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits based on asbestos exposure.
Each year over 3,000 people will suffer and die from asbestos exposure. Asbestos, a known toxin since the 1930's, is an inexpensive fibrous material that is extremely durable and heat resistant. Because of these properties it was heavily used in industry throughout the United States. After its carcinogenic (cancer-causing) properties were discovered many industries irresponsibly continued to use asbestos, putting the public, their workers and families at risk.
Even today asbestos-containing products still remain in buildings, ships, industrial facilities and other environments and continue to expose the public to this extremely dangerous material. The EPA has stated that asbestos "presents an unreasonable risk of injury to human health;" even low levels of asbestos exposure can trigger mesothelioma, asbestosis, pleural disease and lung cancer, diseases that are almost exclusively caused by asbestos.
