  • Did you know that your dad is more likely to be diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease than your mom? Men were typically the ones who held blue collar jobs throughout American history, and it was at those workplaces that asbestos exposure was so prevalent.

    After years or decades of breathing in asbestos fibers on the job, many fathers developed fatal diseases, like mesothelioma. Some even brought the microscopic fibers home with them, exposing their families to the deadly substance.

    If your father is suffering from an asbestos-related disease like asbestosis or mesothelioma, reaching out to an experienced asbestos attorney sooner than later is a good idea. Many victims and their families have been awarded compensation from those responsible for their exposure.
