Asbestos Lawyers Represent People Diagnoses With Mesothelioma Due to Asbestos Exposure

O'Steen & Harrison represents people who have been harmed as a result of asbestos exposure in the workplace. We represent both victims, and their families and loved ones, in cases against asbestos manufacturers.

Because the law limits the time an injured person may file a lawsuit for injuries resulting from asbestos exposure, we encourage you to contact us immediately if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma.

About Asbestos and Mesothelioma

Asbestos has been used in countless materials. Workers in the construction, railroad and shipbuilding industries are at the greatest risk of being exposed to asbestos fibers.

Asbestos is now heavily regulated by the Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Organization (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Workers exposed to asbestos are at an increased risk of developing lung cancer and mesothelioma, a cancer of the thin membrane (mesothelium) that surrounds the lung and other internal organs.

The mesothelium is comprised of two membranes—the parietal and visceral. The visceral membrane surrounds the organ, and the parietal membrane covers it. The fluid in the mesothelium aids in the movement of internal organs. With the lungs, it reduces friction as the lungs expand and contract during breathing.

Asbestos Deaths Are Skyrocketing

The Center for Disease Control warned Americans in July 2004 that asbestos-related deaths were climbing at an alarming rate. This report underscored the serious health risk asbestos continues to pose to people throughout the United States.

The CDC reported that 1,493 people died from diseases caused by asbestos exposure in the year 2000 alone. The governmental agency predicted that the number of deaths will continue to rise for the foreseeable future.
