  • Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer found in the thin lining of the lung, chest, abdomen and heart that is almost always linked to asbestos exposure;
  • Lung cancer, which causes the largest number of deaths related to asbestos exposure;
  • Asbestosis, a serious, progressive, long-term non-cancer disease of the lungs for which there is no effective treatment.

  • “One misconception is that anyone made ill by asbestos in the past would have been diagnosed a long time ago,” Belluck said. “But we know, and the EPA confirms, that symptoms of lung disease caused by asbestos show up many years after exposure.”

    Many types of trades workers have been exposed to asbestos, including shipyard workers, factory workers, pipefitters, sheet metal workers, plumbers, laborers, machinists, mechanics, powerhouse workers and electricians.

    “In fact,” Belluck added, “asbestos is so toxic that mesothelioma has been diagnosed in family members of workers who brought asbestos fibers home on their clothes.”

    Belluck & Fox has obtained many multi-million-dollar judgments on behalf of families whose loved ones suffered and died from mesothelioma caused by asbestos exposure. “The judgments we’ve obtained, and the courts’ willingness to rule for families again and again, is solid indication that manufacturers that used asbestos should be and can be held responsible for the harm they’ve caused,” Belluck said.

    The firm sponsors a mesothelioma information Web site,
