Metairie Mesothelioma Attorney

The ancient Greeks described asbestos as a “miracle mineral” for its versatility, durability, and resistance to flames. By the late 19th century, manufacturers in the US had learned about these qualities and were using asbestos in a wide variety of ways. Millions of Americans were soon earning their living mining asbestos, processing it to make insulation or cement, or working with products that had been made with this strong but cheap substance.

It did not take long for researchers to become suspicious about the high rates of lung disease among these workers. Unfortunately, it did take a long time for employers and government agencies to respond to these concerns. Decades passed between the initial studies linking asbestos to cancer and the government’s decision to regulate the mineral, which was finally made in the 1970’s.

Learn about Asbestos and Mesothelioma

Despite years of careful government regulation, asbestos remains a current problem. This is partly due to mesothelioma’s slow-developing nature, which means that people who worked with asbestos prior to the 1970’s can still be at risk today. There is also the sad fact that asbestos can still be found in many older buildings and vehicles around the country.
