Asbestos products became very popular in manufacturing industries throughout the 20th century. It was not until the 1960’s that the dangers of asbestos were finally uncovered. Asbestos is a natural mineral that has an insulating quality, is resistant to flames, and has multiple uses in construction, household products, shipping and manufacturing.
Some asbestos products were banned from usage because of their risk to human health. Many people who suffer exposure do not realize that they have suffered short or long-term exposure to asbestos products.
There are more than 3,000 products that contain asbestos including protective clothing, construction materials, household items, automobile parts, brakes, or anything that requires a heat shield. Consumer products such as hair dryers, coffee makers, cigarette filters, ironing board covers, oven mitts, or decorations contained asbestos. At the Law Offices of Michael R.
