Asbestos exposure is responsible primarily for diseases that affect the lungs
Because the main route of exposure to asbestos is inhalation, it should come as no surprise that diseases related to the lungs are the most common among victims of asbestos exposure.

This is where the assistance of a specialized lawyer comes into play. Along with their legal team, they will be able to gather sufficient proof to support the causal relation between your lung disease and asbestos exposure, which is bound to guarantee a favorable outcome for your case. Only by working with a lawyer whose main area of practice is toxic exposure you will be able to recover the compensation you are entitled to from asbestos trust funds, as the legal process is very complex and requires specialized knowledge.
