How are people exposed to asbestos?
Asbestos was used in thousands of products over the last century and can be inhaled or ingested in the workplace or at home. Asbestos fibers are small, light, odorless, colorless, and tasteless. They can stay in the air for a long time and are not easily detected.
These tiny particles can also stick to a person’s clothing, skin, and hair. As a result, anyone else who comes into contact with exposed indviduals may also be at risk.
Absestos fibers can remain in the lining of the lungs and other organs once ingested or swallowed, causing serious disease.
What is Mesothelioma?
This aggressive cancer affects the lining of the lungs, heart, abdomen, and testicles. More than 3,000 Americans are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. Because mesothelioma is extremely difficult to treat, most patients have a poor life expectancy.
Asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma. Symptoms usually present between 10 and 50 years after exposure. Once symptoms appear, mesothelioma tumors can spread rapidly throughout the body.
Nationwide asbestos litigation resources
Working with Simmons Hanly Conroy, Bragee Law has the national experience and resources needed to hold asbestos companies accountable.
You have a certain period of time after being diagnosed with mesothelioma to file an asbestos claim. Though each case is unique, there are laws in each state that specify how long you can wait to file a mesothelioma lawsuit.
We recommend you contact us right away so we can conduct a free case review. If you wait too long to seek legal representation, you may no longer be eligible to receive compensation.

Manufacturers have a responsibility to produce safe materials, equipment, and products. Many companies were aware of the dangers of asbestos but willfully chose not to warn their employees or consumers.
