Have You Been Exposed to Asbestos

The Harding Law Firm - Tuesday, October 04, 2016

Asbestos has been used throughout the years in a variety of building materials, including insulation, as well as in the brake pads of a car. Most often, it is found in the pipes, furnaces, roof shingles, paints, and floor tiles of older buildings.

Exposure to asbestos can occur in any place where asbestos has been used, and is very dangerous, as it can be carried in the fibers of shoes or clothing, and transferred to other places, such as your home. If this happens, family members and others can be put at risk as well.

Those who’ve been exposed to asbestos in the past often worked in:

  • Construction
  • Automotive Repair
  • Pipefitting
  • Mills
  • Factories
  • Mines

Symptoms from asbestos-exposure do not appear immediately after exposure. In fact, they often take from 10-40 years to appear, and often relate to lung disease and/or lung cancer.
