The Asbestos Research Group recently announced that new information concerning asbestos have been released. The findings raise the probability that more individuals are at risk for asbestos exposure due to resurgence and secondhand exposure. The company is not only bringing awareness to the facts but offering representation to victims as well.
“We have been fighting for victims of asbestos exposure for 20 years,” stated a company representative. “We help people with mesothelioma and other conditions caused by asbestos exposure by educating, answering questions and representing them as well.”
Asbestos is a mineral, naturally occurring, which was once hailed as being near magical. It was heat resistant and held insulating properties as well, making it perfect for construction of fire-proof vests, construction materials and a myriad of other products. It was used in homes, mixed with cement and even woven into fabric. It was so coveted, the military employed its use in every service branch.
The problem emerged when it was realized that asbestos exposure was dangerous and deadly. The culprit of such illnesses as mesothelioma (a type of cancer), asbestos was banned in over 50 countries, excluding the United States although its use has been reduced.
For decades, those who suffer from asbestos exposure related medical conditions, as well as their families, have had to fight to be treated and compensated. It’s been a rough road that the Asbestos Research Group has helped pioneer and plow through. But the new findings are troubling, according to a spokesperson for the company.
“It’s doubtful that anyone will come knocking on doors to let people know of the new findings and the television news is too busy with other reports to take time out to notify the public so it’s up to organizations like ours to spread the word that there are reasons to believe asbestos exposure may affect many more than previously thought. And it’s also our job to let them know there is hope…and there is help.”
The resurfacing of asbestos in the southern United States like Alabama, Mississippi and Missouri, has served as a wake-up call for reassessing the dangers of asbestos exposure. Once thought to be a problem of the past, new research is proving that occupational exposure, especially in the southern states, is a present danger that needs to be addressed. New findings are also coming to light that secondhand asbestos exposure is a much larger concern than it was thought to be in years gone by.
Those who have been exposed to asbestos through their job occupation or any other means, those who have been around those who have been exposed, and those who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma may be entitled to clinical trials and other programs. They may also be eligible for compensation by the responsible companies. It is important to be aware of these rights and the resources available through a knowledgeable channel such as the Asbestos Research Group.
For those who have been affected by asbestos exposure or even suspect that they may have been through occupational sources, secondhand contact or any other means, more information concerning asbestos exposure can be found on the company website.
