For Miami to Fort Lauderdale, Florida is home to many vital industries, including citrus productions, tourism, shipbuilding and manufacturing. The state's rich natural resources have produced a bounty for many generations. Unfortunately, in the course of much dynamic economic activity, workers have sometimes been exposed to asbestos on the job. Family members have likewise been vulnerable to secondhand exposure.
The hazards of asbestos exposure have been well-known since at least the 1930s. In spite of the growing awareness of the risk to employees and private individuals through use of asbestos-containing products, companies and government entities did not take adequate precautions to protect affected human beings. As a result, thousands of Americans in Florida and nationwide die of mesothelioma and other asbestos-triggered diseases each year.
