About Asbestos

Asbestos is a naturally occurring microscopic fiber, which was commonly known as a “magic mineral” because of its high insulative qualities and its characteristic resistance to electricity, fire, and corrosion. This mineral, which, when processed, is soft and flexible, was routinely used in fireproofing materials and as a powerful insulator for homes, businesses, and the military until the late 1970s.

Unfortunately, those same effective properties make asbestos a highly dangerous substance when inhaled. Asbestos inhalation was frequently experienced unknowingly by industry workers, military personnel, builders, and their families, and exposure to these fibers is still a significant issue today. Asbestos fibers can remain in the lungs for years, even decades, and can cause life-threatening diseases like lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.

If you or a loved one has mesothelioma or another type of lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure, our personal injury law firm’s team of asbestos lawyers in Los Angeles and Oakland, CA, can help you

Diseases Caused By Asbestos Exposure


Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that is only caused by exposure to asbestos fibers. When the fibers infiltrate the body, cancer cells can begin developing in the lungs and the protective lining covering most internal organs. As this disease is only caused by asbestos, it can be prevented.

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you are entitled to significant personal injury compensation for medical bills and other treatments. Call the Los Angeles- and Oakland-based asbestos lawyers at The Barnes Firm today.

Asbestosis is different from mesothelioma as it is not a type of cancer. Therefore, those with asbestosis have different symptoms and treatment options. This disease, which occurs when asbestos fibers are inhaled and become caught in the inner layers of the lungs, can cause fibrosis, which can then lead to heart strain and heart disease, severely impacting a person’s quality of life.

Cases in Oakland and Los Angeles that involve asbestosis should be handled by a law firm with attorneys knowledgeable about the disease and the compensation victims should receive.

Lung Cancer

Asbestosis and mesothelioma are the only diseases directly caused by asbestos exposure. However, the same inflammatory process of asbestosis can lead to the development of cancer in the lungs. If there is evidence that the diagnosis of lung cancer can be in any way attributed to asbestos exposure, our attorneys can make a case for your personal injury and get you the compensation due to you.
