Attorneys Advocating for Victims of Asbestos Exposure

The word asbestos comes from an ancient word meaning 'unquenchable.' While that meaning does not fit with the fire-resistant properties that made asbestos so popular, it perfectly describes the damage done by asbestos products over the years. Corporate greed and negligence has led to an overwhelming flood of illnesses and deaths caused by asbestos exposure. At Gori Julian & Associates, P.C., our team of skilled lawyers is committed to helping the victims of mesothelioma and other forms of asbestos-related cancer.

Asbestos Use

Asbestos was known to have deadly effects more than a century ago. Despite that, asbestos consumption continued to rise in the United States and throughout the world until the 1970s. Contrary to popular belief, asbestos is still not banned for many uses in the U.S. It can still be used in everyday products from floor tiles and roof shingles, to brake pads and even clothing. While asbestos is no longer mined in the U.S., asbestos exposure is still an ongoing problem.

Asbestos exposure cases have been found in locations all over the globe. Exposure was particularly common in certain industries and among military personnel. Not everyone who is exposed develops cancer, but the risk is present for many.
