Today, Earth Day, allows for a reflection on strides made in the environmental realm. However, through that reflection, one must ask how much more can and will be done. Asbestos has been a large environmental concern for the last few decades. Exposure to the dangerous substance has caused cancer in millions of people, and more are being diagnosed all the time.
Because of the number of people suffering from asbestos exposure and mesothelioma, there have been great improvements upon the quality of workplaces that involve asbestos and communities that contain it. However, with all the asbestos abatement that has already occurred, there is still a great deal more in the country that is putting people at risk.
If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos, contact the mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-781-3955.
