People who worked with or around asbestos products inhaled or ingested microscopic fibers that lodged in the body. These fibers cause mesothelioma and lung cancer 15 to 60 years after a person was originally exposed. Workers who were exposed years ago can file asbestos claims now in New York after being diagnosed with:
- Mesothelioma, a cancer that attacks the tissue that lines the chest cavity, lungs, abdominal cavity, abdominal organs, heart, and testicles.
- Lung cancer, which can be caused when asbestos fibers lodge in the lung itself.
Despite the harm asbestos has caused, it is still not completely banned in the United States.
