Asbestos is a deadly mineral that has been used in thousands of products. When microscopic asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested, they can cause a number of diseases, including mesothelioma and lung cancer. Of the diseases caused by asbestos, mesothelioma is the most aggressive, attacking the internal lining of the lungs and abdomen. Mesothelioma typically does not develop until decades after the asbestos exposure occurred. Florida, a popular retirement destination, is home to a mature population. Many of its older residents first exhibiting mesothelioma symptoms in their 50s or later were likely exposed to asbestos from jobs they held decades ago. Mesothelioma typically has a latency period of 20 or more years.

Construction jobs have traditionally factored heavily in Floridas growing economy over the decades, and the construction industry is among those industries with the highest mesothelioma rates.1 At thousands of job sites across the U.S., including sites in and around the state of Florida, day laborers and other workers have been exposed to asbestos as part of their daily routine, placing their health, their lives, and even their families lives in potential danger.
