Asbestos Diseases and Your Legal Rights
Asbestos is a set of six naturally occurring silicate minerals formerly used commercially for their desirable physical properties. The prolonged inhalation of asbestos fibers can cause serious illnesses, including malignant lung cancer, mesothelioma and abestosis (a type of pneumoconiosis). The trade and use of asbestos have been restricted or banned in many jurisdictions.
