Asbestos Lawyer in Hawaii

Damages for Asbestos Related Illness

Asbestos is a fiber used for insulation and fire-proofing, among other uses. Over the course of the 20th century, the negative effects it has had on the health of those exposed through inhalation became widely recognized as more and more people were diagnosed with asbestos-related illnesses. Once inhaled, asbestos fibers lodge themselves permanently in the body, leading to long-term illnesses such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. Victims face years of drawn-out suffering from disease and many die prematurely. The substance is so noxious that many cases of asbestos injury arise from second-hand exposure, when a family member washes the clothes of a worker who was handling the material.

Despite its widespread recognition as a disease causing agent, asbestos is still legal. If you or a family member has been exposed to asbestos, a Hawaii personal injury lawyer can represent you in a civil suit to pursue compensation for the medical bills, pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life attendant to asbestos-caused disease. Once it is established that the disease was a result of asbestos exposure, it is necessary to document the conditions of the exposure, in order to build a strong case against the party responsible for your illness.
