Did exposure to fibro asbestos cement cause mesothelioma? Our attorneys can help.
A young woman who remembers playing with bits of fibro brought home by her carpenter father when she was a young child has just learned that she has mesothelioma.
Fibro, the shortened form of "Fibrous Cement" or "Fibrous Asbestos Cement" (FAC), is a building material made of compressed fibers cemented into rigid sheets.
She is one of a younger generation of victims of second-hand exposure to asbestos, where the children of those who worked with fibro and brought home asbestos fibers on their work clothing.
She remembers her father storing sheets of fibro under their home, and she and her brother and sister playing hide-and-seek under there.
Many people who worked with fibro--or who brought home the asbestos fibers on their work clothes and whose family members were exposed--have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
