Asbestos is the primary cause of mesothelioma, a deadly cancer that affects the lining of the mesothelium. This material was used in thousands of products including tiles, adhesives, shingles, clothing and packing materials. Often nicknamed the "wonder mineral," asbestos was widely used because of its resistance to chemicals and heat.

Many companies that made asbestos-containing products knew about the dangers of the material, but failed to report this knowledge to employees or the general public. According to some theories, these companies may have known of asbestos hazards as early as the 1920s, even though the federal ban did not take place until the 1980s.

Because asbestos manufacturers did not warn employees of the dangers of working with material, these workers were inhaling carcinogens on a daily basis. Workers at-risk for developing mesothelioma were typically those who worked in shipyards, mines, factories, the military or anywhere were asbestos products were manufactured or repaired. These employees inhaled thousands of asbestos fibers, which became permanently lodged in the lining of the lungs and could eventually turn into mesothelioma cancer.

Other workers at risk for developing mesothelioma include:

  • Construction workers
  • Pipe fitters
  • Auto mechanics
  • Steel workers

Our mesothelioma attorneys believe that these asbestos manufacturers had a responsibility to warn employees of the dangers of this material.
