Lung Cancer & Asbestos Exposure

Advocacy for Workers Exposed to Asbestos on the Job

Asbestos is a naturally occurring substance that was used in production and manufacturing for many years before its link with dangerous health conditions was exposed. After the dangers of asbestos were confirmed in the 1970s, the United States government began to regulate asbestos use. The substance was connected with adverse health effects including lung cancer. It is now listed as a human carcinogen, alongside other dangerous substances such as tobacco.

Unfortunately, many employers failed to warn their workers about asbestos exposure or to provide proper provisions for protection. Now, many former workers are paying the price for that negligence. Our firm believes those responsible should be held financially accountable. If you were diagnosed with lung cancer and you believe your diagnosis is related to asbestos exposure, please contact our national asbestos attorneys at BPB for a free consultation.

Why Does Asbestos Cause Lung Cancer?

Inhaling asbestos can raise your risk for lung cancer. Asbestos irritates the lungs because its microscopic fibers lodge in the soft tissue surrounding the lungs and are difficult for the body to expel. Over time—even years or decades after exposure—asbestos irritation can lead to scarring and tissue damage in the lungs.
