The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have said that there is no safe level of exposure to asbestos.

To discuss possible legal action following a cancer diagnosis, contact Joe Lyon for information on asbestos exposure treatment and compensation. Settlements can be reached quickly when you file a claim with the proper asbestos trust fund. Victims of occupational cancers have been compensated for their medical costs and emotional distress.
Asbestos was commonly found in factories, homes, construction sites, hospitals, schools, military bases, warehouses, foundries, steel mills, paper mills, shipyards, auto plants, lumber yards, oil refineries and chemical plants.
The Lyon Firm can help you identify toxic exposure sources and then initiate the proper claims to compensate you for your losses.
Asbestos fibers break down over time or with use, and the fibers of the material can be ingested or inhaled, and lodged in the lung tissue for decades before it leads to cancer.
Asbestos was present in piping, boilers, insulation, auto parts, smelting equipment, machinery, electrical components, machine parts, packaging, flooring, ceiling tiles, roofing, and construction materials.
If you were exposed to asbestos by your former employers, and have developed cancer or a related illness, you can contact our lawyers and file a claim.
Asbestos was not always known to be a cancer-causing agent, and was an effective insulator with durability and fire-resistant properties. It was a cheap solution, but proved to be very costly in the long run.
