Asbestos is a very useful, but highly toxic naturally occurring mineral, which was widely used in the construction industry. Asbestos has been used in materials for insulation, roofing shingles, ceiling and floor tiles, fire retardants, and cement products. It has also been used in automobile parts like the clutch, brake and transmission. Although the use of asbestos is not banned, its use is highly regulated because of the risks to human health associated with asbestos exposure.

People can be exposed to asbestos without even realizing it. Asbestos fibers are very small, but prolonged inhalation can accumulate in the lungs and cause long-term debilitating illnesses for the victim. Which is why although asbestos is not banned, there are regulations guiding the permissible levels of asbestos that can be contained in any product or environment.
Asbestos exposure has been linked to major lung conditions including mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer. It can take years for these illnesses to develop after asbestos exposure.
Getting Compensation for Injury or Death Associated with Asbestos Exposure
A successful claim for asbestos-related injury or death will necessarily involve the testimony or an expert. A victim of asbestos-related injury or death must prove the following:
They were exposed to asbestos;
Asbestos is capable of causing the particular illness or injury they are suffering from; and
The victim was exposed to sufficient levels of asbestos to cause their illness or injury.
The victim must be able to provide evidence that they were exposed to levels of asbestos that are known to cause the kind of injury they suffered. Getting this type of evidence requires the skill and knowledge of legal and scientific professionals with in-depth experience about asbestos cases.
