Prolonged asbestos exposure has been scientifically linked to numerous dangerous and deadly health conditions as early as the 1930s. These asbestos-related illnesses include mesothelioma, lung cancer, throat cancer, complicated lung diseases, and more.

Unfortunately, even though it has been over half a century since the first asbestos litigation was passed, the laws didn’t entirely solve the asbestos problem for everyone.
