Information on Asbestos and Asbestos Products
The term "asbestos" describes six naturally occurring fibrous minerals, namely chrysotile, amosite, crocidolite, tremolite, anthophylitte and actinolite. When mined and processed, asbestos is typically separated into very thin bundles of fibers and then commonly mixed with a binder during processing.
Asbestos has been known to man for centuries and has been used in literally hundreds of products. Asbestos was used because it is strong, insulates well, and resists fire and corrosion. Common modern uses are as thermal pipe and boiler insulation, spray-applied fire proofing and sound proofing, floor coverings, ceiling tiles, roofing materials and "transite" pipe and sheeting.
In the United States, asbestos became widely used in the early 1900s and its use peaked during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Despite wide spread use of asbestos many asbestos manufacturers and industry insiders became aware of the serious health issues surrounding asbestos in the 1930s and 1940s, but kept the information secret from workers and from the public. In the 1970s the Federal government stepped in and regulated the use of asbestos products. It is also now commonly agreed that exposure to asbestos can cause mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other health problems.
Today despite being better regulated an estimated 1.3 million employees in construction and general industry face significant asbestos exposure on the job. Heaviest exposures occur in the construction industry, particularly during the removal of asbestos during renovation or demolition. Employees are also likely to be exposed during the manufacture of asbestos products (such as textiles, friction products, insulation, and other building materials) and during automotive brake and clutch repair work.
Unfortunately, in asbestos exposure cases it is not always just the primary exposed person that suffers exposure, but many times the exposed worker can unknowingly bring home asbestos dust and fibers that are kicked up in the air and breathed in by the worker's wife and family. Over time these secondary exposure claims can also cause serious asbestos diseases including mesothelioma for the families of asbestos workers.
Asbestos Product Dumping
In addition to domestic exposure, some companies have taken asbestos products that cannot be sold in the United States and have sold the product in other countries. This product dumping of dangerous asbestos insulation, asbestos block, and other asbestos products can cause serious problems including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other health problems. Texas companies that dump dangerous products in other countries and cause significant harm can sometimes be brought into the Texas courts to answer for their wrongful dumping and be made to pay money compensation for their wrongful acts.

Premises Liability and Dangerous Condition Claims - Numerous people are injured and killed each year by dangerous asbestos conditions and hazardous hidden traps. Asbestos hidden in old refineries, chemical plants, schools, commercial buildings, homes, and other buildings can cause severe disease and even death. Many times property owners or premises maintainers know or through a reasonable inspection should have known about hidden asbestos products, but don't want to spend the money for proper asbestos abatement. When attempting to seek compensation from the premises owner/maintainer for negligently exposing workers to asbestos or fraudulently concealing asbestos, an injured person or the family of an injured person often needs assistance proving liability and damages as well as avoiding traps that many insurance adjusters set to avoid paying just claims.
