Asbestos is a dangerous, even deadly, substance that was in active use for over one hundred years in the United States. It is most commonly found today in construction, shipbuilding, pipe fitting, and other environments in which the asbestos fibers are likely to become dislodged, causing illness and even death, in both the exposed parties and any family members exposed to the substance.

Asbestos is known to cause a variety of diseases, including mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer, sometimes decades after exposure.
