A natural microscopic fiber, asbestos was often used for fireproofing materials and insulation up until the late 1970s.
Individuals who worked with asbestos or used products containing asbestos were susceptible to exposure by unknowingly inhaling the fibers. Once asbestos fibers enter the lungs, they can stay there forever. Over years and decades, these fibers can lead to life threatening diseases such as lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another type of lung cancer, our San Diego asbestos lawyers can help. Contact us for a free case evaluation.

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer caused only by exposure to asbestos. The cancer cells develop in the protective lining covering most of the body’s internal organs. As the cells divide, they can invade and damage tissues and organs, making mesothelioma a deadly illness.
Because mesothelioma is caused only by asbestos exposure, it’s also 100% preventable.
If either you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be entitled to compensation that can help cover your medical bills for treatment. Call a San Diego mesothelioma attorney at The Barnes Firm today for a free legal consultation.
Most people who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma previously worked in places where they could inhale asbestos fibers unknowingly. The kinds of workers most likely to have had contact with asbestos include construction workers, steel workers, demolition workers, pipe-fitters, laborers, asbestos insulators, automobile and heavy machinery mechanics, railroad workers, people who lived close to asbestos factories, and family members through second-hand exposure.
In some cases, asbestos fibers can become entrapped in a worker’s clothing and passed on to their family members at home. Washing a worker’s clothing, for example, can increase the risk of developing mesothelioma.
Many workers who were exposed to asbestos might have additional benefits and rights outlined by the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA). The act was passed by Congress in 1908 to protect railroad workers and to provide them with compensation if they were injured on the job. Unfortunately, many railroad workers were exposed to asbestos as well. If you or a loved one ever worked for a railroad company and have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer, mesothelioma, or asbestosis, please contact one of our mesothelioma attorneys today for a completely free consultation, as you may be entitled to benefits protected by FELA.
In December 2010, Congress passed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act. The act provides health care, financial compensation, and medical monitoring to workers who assisted with clean-up after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City.
