Goldblatt Singer Knows Asbestos Lawsuits
For nearly 100 years, asbestos was celebrated by the construction, shipbuilding and manufacturing industries for its strength, heat resistance and other impressive qualities.
However, scientists also found other, more deadly qualities that outweigh the benefits. When its fibers are inhaled or swallowed, they can become lodged in the lungs or body, over time causing irritation and disease. Asbestos exposure is linked to serious respiratory diseases and cancers, including mesothelioma.
Why Are We Just Now Seeing So Much Mesothelioma Litigation?
Companies began learning about the risks of asbestos in the 1920s, and the federal government put limits on asbestos exposure in 1972. So why are so many asbestos lawsuits happening now?
After you’re exposed to asbestos, it can take 20 to 50 years for any disease, including mesothelioma, to develop. Additionally, many companies continued to expose their employees to asbestos even after risks were known, so we can expect mesothelioma diagnosis and litigation to continue for several more decades.
