Mesothelioma and Asbestos Exposure in Huntsville, Alabama

For decades it has been common knowledge that exposure to asbestos can cause serious illnesses, but many asbestos manufacturers, fully aware of the dangers, continued to produce and sell asbestos.

Asbestos was once commonly used across the United States for insulation and various other purposes, but due to serious health issues, has been banned from further use. Older buildings and residences do still have asbestos insulation and construction and demolition workers and others, still suffer serious consequences from exposure to asbestos.

Exposure to asbestos can cause lung infections, respiratory failure, heart failure, asbestosis, lung cancer, pleural mesothelioma, pericardial mesothelioma and peritoneal mesothelioma. Symptoms of mesothelioma can include chest pain, abdominal pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, cough, and weight loss.
