Asbestos in Products
Mesothelioma from Asbestos-Containing Products
Until asbestos was finally legislated out of use, American industry relied on this cheap and versatile substance in a huge range of applications. Literally thousands of products, construction materials and industrial machines contained asbestos for fireproofing, heat shielding and insulation. See List of Asbestos Containing Materials.
Mesothelioma typically develops 30 or more years after asbestos exposure. So even though asbestos was eliminated from most products by the late 1980s, new cases of asbestos cancer and asbestos lung disease are still diagnosed every day.
The Throneberry Law Group is skilled at making the connection between asbestos diseases and specific products or materials that contained asbestos.
See List of Asbestos Containing Materials.
Our attorneys work fast to document the known or likely exposure to bring suit against asbestos suppliers, product manufacturers and companies that exposed workers to asbestos products despite the known hazards.
The trick of litigation is identifying a specific product, perhaps even a certain model or year, and matching it to a specific place and period in the person’s work history or life activities. The list of ACMs is broad and endless, but includes:
- Insulation in industrial boilers and turbines
- Packings in valves and pumps
- Fireproof coatings (painted or sprayed on)
- Electrical wire
- Brake linings
- Pipe and duct insulation
- Fire-resistant clothing, aprons and blankets
- Sandpaper and abrasives
- Plaster, putty and joint compounds
- Floor coverings and tile
- Ceiling panels
- Home insulation
- Roof shingles
