How Many People Have Been Affected by Asbestos?

Asbestos is very effective at resisting heat and fire, a property that led to its widespread use during the Industrial Revolution and throughout the 1900s. Unfortunately, however, it is also carcinogenic. Research suggests that up to 100,000 people in the United States may have died because of asbestos exposure, and the number may be even greater. Asbestos disease symptoms can take decades to develop after exposure.

The full dangers of asbestos were not known to the public until a few decades ago. Although asbestos companies were aware of its cancer-causing properties as early as the 1930s, they withheld that information from the public. Not knowing the connection between their disease and their former workplace, many people who were exposed to asbestos years ago may have died before the dangers of mesothelioma were known.

The full impact of asbestos may remain unknown. Before the dangers of asbestos were known to the public, hundreds of thousands of people may have died from asbestos exposure without ever knowing the connection between their condition and their past encounters with asbestos fibers. Fortunately, you don’t have to have the same fate.

By aggressively pursuing cancer treatment and litigation against the people responsible for your condition, you may be able to find relief and closure for you and your family. Asbestos companies knowingly and cold-heartedly exposed huge numbers of people to carcinogenic fibers.
