Ew Asbestos

The area I live in is full of construction workers, military, old buildings and a huge majority of my city alone works at one of the largest shipyards in the country.
In those types of fields, you can become exposed to all kinds of nasty things. Could be fumes, dust, mold.. but the one I hear about the most is asbestos exposure. Not a day goes by where I don’t see a commercial about being exposed to asbestos because of our local shipyard.

Asbestos is not something healthy to be exposed to. I remember when I was younger the school down the road from me being closed down due to asbestos for an entire year until they could rid the building of it.
Asbestos exposure can lead to Mesothelioma- which is a very dangerous form of lung cancer.
Thousands of people are needlessly exposed to asbestos- as employers know about this harmful substance and its dangers before revealing their knowledge to the public.

Obviously cancer not only effects those exposed, but their families- and those exposed by their workplaces are often entitled to some sort of compensation.
Working with an experienced Mesothelioma Lawyer sometimes can be the only way to receive compensation.
If you’ve been exposed and especially if you have Mesothelioma, you deserve compensation and help with medical bills.
