Asbestos-Related Lung Cancer
Attorney in Grand Forks, North Dakota
If you or a family member has been diagnosed with lung cancer, you owe it to yourself to try to find out if exposure to asbestos caused the disease. For many years, asbestos was widely used in the construction industry, as well as in chemical refineries, power plants, shipyards, auto repair products (such as brake pads and shoes), and many other industries. The link between asbestos exposure and lung cancer is well-established.
How Were You Exposed to Asbestos?
Manufacturing companies continued using asbestos in products long after the health risks were known. Many people in North Dakota were exposed to high levels of asbestos on the job or through secondhand exposure to asbestos through coming into contact with a household member’s work clothes that were covered with asbestos fibers.
Even people with a history of smoking may be entitled to compensation if asbestos exposure can be linked to lung cancer. Asbestos is a known carcinogen. Smokers who have been exposed to asbestos have a significantly higher risk of developing lung cancer than a smoker who was never exposed to asbestos fibers.
