Santa Ana Asbestos Lawyer

Asbestos is a substance made up of six naturally occurring minerals that form soft, flexible fibers. Asbestos has many different practical uses and at one time, it was commonly used in residential and commercial buildings. While asbestos is not as commonly found today as it once was, it is still present. Recently, asbestos was used in many buildings at Santa Ana College. Due to the dangers it poses to people’s health, there are many bans on the use of asbestos in new products. However, there are still older products and buildings that contain asbestos. When people are exposed to the substance, they can develop many illnesses, including mesothelioma, an aggressive and rare form of cancer. If you or a loved one has suffered from exposure, our Santa Ana asbestos lawyer can provide the legal help you need.

Why is Asbestos So Dangerous?

While asbestos is useful in many different applications, the substance is very harmful to human health. Once asbestos is ingested or inhaled, it becomes trapped inside the body and has no way to escape. Over time, the fibers can cause inflammation and scarring, particularly in the lungs. While many people can become exposed to asbestos, approximately two to ten percent of people develop mesothelioma, which is an extremely aggressive form of cancer.

California’s Laws on Asbestos Exposure

The Airborne Toxic Control Measures (ATCM) is a complete set of laws intended to protect people in California from the abundance of asbestos that is naturally found in Santa Ana and throughout the state. These laws control surfacing applications, as well as the quarrying, grading, surface mining, and construction of asbestos. Surfacing applications include the sale and production of certain materials, such as sand and gravel, in asbestos sites.

Who is Liable for Asbestos Exposure?

Property owners have a legal duty to make sure anyone who visits their property is not exposed to asbestos. Manufacturers have a legal duty to make sure their products can be safely used, which means avoiding the use of asbestos or warning consumers when a product contains the substance. Manufacturers and property owners are just two possible parties who may be liable for asbestos exposure. Our Santa Ana asbestos attorney will fully review the facts of your case and conduct an investigation to determine who is at fault for your injuries.
