Culver City Asbestos Attorney

Culver City is a Los Angeles County community steeped in culture, with a long film tradition as well as a thriving food and nightlife scene. Over the years, the city has steadily grown its industry, albeit this growth has come at a price.

Some of Culver City’s development relied on asbestos-containing materials, which can cause fatal diseases to workers and residents nearby who are exposed to toxic asbestos fibers.

Why Is Asbestos Exposure Harmful to Culver City Residents?

Asbestos is no longer allowed for use at industrial jobsites, and this legal ban was made because of clear evidence showing the dangers of asbestos to humans. Asbestos is durable and flame-resistant, just two of the many beneficial attributes that made this mineral desirable for building projects.

That said, asbestos can also release tiny fibers into the air when the asbestos-containing materials are disturbed. Should this happen, anyone nearby who was exposed may swallow the microscopic asbestos fibers, at which point they can enter the lining of the lungs.

Once asbestos enters the body, research suggests the fibers may never leave. In this respect, the durable nature that made asbestos desirable for building is also what makes asbestos lethal for humans. However, it can also take decades for exposure to asbestos to turn into a mesothelioma diagnosis.

This long latency period, in turn, makes diagnosing the disease difficult. Sadly, the difficulty in treating this disease is one reason why mesothelioma is so fatal. Patients diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma have a 1 in 10 chance of surviving past five years.

For this reason, it is essential to seek the help of a Culver City mesothelioma lawyer if you have lost a loved one to this deadly disease or are a recently diagnosed patient.
