Asbestos Mesothelioma Lawyers in Florida
Mesothelioma is a rare yet deadly form of cancer that affects the cells that line the lungs (pleural mesothelioma), the abdominal organs (peritoneal mesothelioma), and/or the heart (pericardial mesothelioma). Each year, roughly 3,000 Americans are diagnosed with this fatal and entirely preventable disease. Florida has the second highest rate of mesothelioma deaths in the United States.
The cause of mesothelioma cancer is exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a natural mineral that has been used for thousands of years because of its insulation and heat resistance qualities. While asbestos is affordable and effective for use in insulation, flooring, roofing, and plumbing, it causes a number of deadly diseases, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. The vast majority of people in Florida diagnosed with mesothelioma came into contact with asbestos on a Florida jobsite, where the employers were aware of the dangers of asbestos exposure but failed to notify the workers of these dangers.
