Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber that is used in millions of common products for its insulation and fire prevention features, and has been used in the industrialized world for over one hundred years.
When asbestos-containing materials are disturbed by construction, repair, or demolition, microscopic asbestos fibers can become airborne and can enter the lungs, causing serious health problems including death. The primary source of asbestos exposure comes from paper and pulp mills. Those at risk for asbestos exposure include those who work in foundries, mining, construction, HVAC and automobile repair.
Exposure to asbestos can cause asbestosis (a non-cancerous lung disease), lung cancer and mesothelioma (a rare cancer that affects the lungs, chest, abdomen and heart). Our Milwaukee personal injury attorneys at Samster Konkel & Safran, S.C. have helped many clients with asbestos-exposure claims. Our legal team understands the complexities of asbestos exposure claims, notably the fact that the health problems caused by asbestos can take several years from exposure to develop.
