Exposure to asbestos in the course of work is an unfortunate reality for many Americans. Those who work in shipbuilding, mining, construction, and similar fields are at particular risk of asbestos exposure.

Most mesothelioma cases exceed $1 million dollars and are settled without going to court.

Asbestos exposure, which occurs when the airborne particles from asbestos are breathed in, can result in such debilitating and frequently fatal diseases as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis.

The health effects of asbestos exposure usually don't show up right away, so many workers find themselves with serious illnesses many years — even decades — after they were exposed.
