Today, asbestos is universally recognized as a highly toxic substance. But just a few decades ago, asbestos was one of the most widely used materials in the U.S. It was used as a building material and the base ingredient for thousands of products. Sadly, this proliferation of asbestos resulted in the biggest man-made epidemic in history which claimed countless lives.
The scale of the human tragedy caused by asbestos could have been significantly reduced if the companies that mined and sold asbestos and asbestos-based products had not denied and concealed the true danger of asbestos from the American public.
If you or someone in your family has been impacted by asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma, you can get financial compensation from these companies by filing an asbestos lawsuit. Contact our asbestos lawyers today.
