    Asbestos is one of the essential raw materials used due to its chemical and fire-resistant properties.

    Asbestos occurs naturally and has been extensively used in the construction industry in making fireproof buildings.


They have also been used in making military vehicles. Asbestos also acts as a sound absorber when mixed with concrete and plastics. Despite all the usage of asbestos, they are highly carcinogenic.

When exposed, the asbestos fibers become airborne, and when inhaled, they affect the mesothelium layers of significant internal body organs. Most people affected with mesothelioma have no idea about the dangers of mesothelioma.

Suppose you or you know someone who is suffering from this condition, you should refer them to a mesothelioma lawyer who works for a  national law firm specializing in helping people find compensation for being exposed without their knowledge.

  • Pericardium mesothelioma:

    The fibers sometimes find their way into the pericardium membrane of the heart. Pericardium mesothelioma is very lethal and unnoticeable. Once the fiber settles on the heart’s sac-like structure, the cause formation of fluid and inflammation leading to pericardium mesothelioma.
