Asbestos Exposure Remains a Significant Threat

One way that Texas residents have been exposed to asbestos is through working as mechanics or heating and cooling workers, as well as through mining, drilling, and other occupations. It is also suspected, if not proven, that some of these workers may have taken asbestos exposure home to their loved ones as well.

One young Texas woman, now 37, first discovered tumors on her lungs from mesothelioma when she was 22. She has said she believes that she was exposed through the work clothes her father wore when she was a child. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos.

While asbestos is now banned in construction, it remains in many American homes and businesses. Products containing asbestos are still sometimes imported. Some individuals are still living with the effects of exposure that occurred years ago.

Asbestos can cause mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer, and asbestosis. Approximately 10,000 Americans die from asbestos-related diseases each year.

The damage from asbestos exposure can be significant. It can include debilitating pain, death, and significant emotional financial consequences. When there is a group of injured people who have been harmed in a significant way, mass torts lawsuits may help victims recover compensation for medical expenses and other types of damages related to the injuries suffered or the loss of a loved one.

The legal process seeks to provide protections for victims harmed by the negligence of others, including cases in which people were injured by dangerously defective products. Texas attorneys with experience in asbestos-related lawsuits can help the injured and their families to understand how the law applies to their circumstances.
