What Are Common Asbestos-Related Cancers?
Asbestos is a fibrous fire-retardant material that was used in the manufacture of numerous products, including sheet metal, auto parts, pipes, ships, textiles, insulation, tiles and sealants. People who inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers are at the greatest risk for developing asbestos illnesses and cancers.
Were You Exposed To Asbestos?
If you were exposed to asbestos in the workplace or if you experienced secondhand exposure because of a family member’s job, you may be eligible to collect damages from the asbestos manufacturer.

Asbestos can cause numerous types of cancer, including:
- Lung cancer
- Colon cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Laryngeal cancer
Typically, a person must have underlying asbestosis or asbestos-related pleural disease to link asbestos exposure to his or her cancer. With our experience, we know how to prove the source of asbestos to identify the party responsible for your illness. In most cases, the manufacturer or distributor of the asbestos product is held liable for damages, not the victim’s employer.
We seek compensation to cover medical expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering. In wrongful death cases, you may also be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses and the personal loss of a loved one.
