Houston Asbestos Lawyers

>> Friday, November 19, 2010

Due to its properties as heat and fire resistant, asbestos was widely used as an insulating material in the building, ship-building and motor industries. It is also a preferred material by household appliances manufacturers, power stations and telephone exchanges. Unfortunately, prolonged exposure to asbestos causes mesothelioma, a rare kind of cancer. Even family members of those who were exposed to asbestos are also exposed to asbestos since asbestos fibers can be carried to homes through clothes. Mesothelioma may not develop until 15 to 40 years a person has been exposed to asbestos. This is the reason there is an increase in cases of mesothelioma.

Companies involved in manufacturing products with asbestos were aware of its harmful effects as the 1920s and 1930s but were negligent. This is the reason why many mesothelioma patients and their families consult legal advisers for possible claims and compensation for damages caused to them. One reliable law firm that takes care of mesothelioma cases is

Heard Robins Cloud & Black, LLP. Mesothelioma patients and their families should immediately get in touch with one of their experienced Houston asbestos lawyer if they wish to file for an asbestos settlement.
