Products That Contain Asbestos Can Cause Mesothelioma
Up until asbestos was legally banned from being used, American industry relied very heavily on this versatile and inexpensive substance for many different products. Thousands of industrial machines, products, construction components and more were made with asbestos in order to insulate, provide heat shielding and fireproofing.
Mesothelioma does not typically develop until about 30 or so years after the victim has been exposed to asbestos, making it difficult to determine the exact point at which the victim was exposed. New cases of mesothelioma and asbestosis are being diagnosed every day, and the Throneberry Law Group specializes in investigating cases of mesotheliom and other asbestos related conditions and discovering the cause of asbestos exposure quickly. This allows us to bring suit against responsible parties quickly, so funds can be obtained to pay for medical care and pain and suffering.
Sometimes litigating a mesothelioma case involves identifying an exact product – and even identifying what year the exposure occurred or what the model of the product in question is – and matching that to a specific period or place in the victims life activities or history of work.
Here is a short list of many of the products that commonly contained asbestos before using the material was outlawed:
- Electrical wire
- Roofing shingles
- Insulation for homes
- Industrial turbine and boiler insulation
- Fireproof coatings that are sprayed or painted on
- Linings for brakes
- Insulation for ducts and pipes
- Panels for ceilings
- Tile and other floor coverings
- Packings for pumps and valves
- Fire resistant clothing, blankets or aprons
- Joint compounds, plaster or putty
