There Are Many Ways You Can Be Exposed To Asbestos
Asbestos is a natural mineral that was once commonly used in many industries throughout the United States. Asbestos is a heat-resistant substance that was used in insulation, cement and other substances. Of course, when asbestos fibers break, any person in the vicinity can inhale these microscopic particles. Over time, this exposure can lead to any number of harmful and often fatal diseases.
Companies that mined asbestos, manufactured asbestos-related products or simply used asbestos in their industries knew or should have known about the risks involved with this substance. Unfortunately, these companies failed to protect their workers.
