On-the-job asbestos exposure – years and years ago – continues to cause serious diseases. Work in paper mills, other industrial plants, ships, shipyards, Navy and other military facilities often meant exposure to asbestos-containing insulation on steam pipes and boilers and other equipment. Over the decades, many in North Florida have developed asbestos-caused diseases such as asbestosis, a scarring of the lungs, lung cancer, and malignant mesothelioma, a fatal cancer of the lining of the lungs. If you or your loved ones were exposed to asbestos and consequently developed mesothelioma or lung cancer from that exposure, you deserve to have compassionate, capable, and experienced legal representation. We are here to help.
