Information concerning the health hazards of asbestos began appearing in medical and scientific literature in the early 1900s. By the late 1930s, respected medical journals already contained articles describing how asbestos could cause asbestosis and cancer, indicating that the diseases took 15 years or more to develop (latency period); that the diseases were often progressive; and that asbestos disease could be fatal.
In addition to the growing body of medical literature about the dangers of asbestos published throughout the early to mid-twentieth century, many asbestos companies had their own corporate memos, notes, letters, and scientific articles about the health dangers of asbestos exposure.
Despite this large body of knowledge, asbestos companies failed to adequately warn those who would come into contact with their products about the health hazards of such exposure.
This failure to adequately warn and protect those who could be exposed or come into contact with the asbestos emitted when the asbestos products were installed and/or removed is the basis for the negligence and strict liability lawsuits against these companies.
Asbestos exposure can occur from drywall joint compound, insulation, roofing products, floor tile, ceiling tile, automobile brakes and brake linings among many others.
