Asbestosis Claims in Sacramento, California
Asbestosis and mesothelioma are kinds of cancer caused by the inhalation of airborne asbestos dust particles over an extended period of time. Mesothelioma is a lethal disease that most commonly affects the pleura (lungs), peritoneum (abdomen), or pericardium (heart).
Asbestos was a common building material prior to the mid-70s, and is still in use all over the world. It is found today in old buildings, railways, and cement. Hundreds of thousands of people were exposed to this dangerous material over the years. It was often carried home on the clothing of workers, and then inhaled by family and friends. Inhaling even small quantities can be dangerous. That is why exposure to asbestos did not just affect those working around it, but entire families.
