Florida’s reputation for sunshine and ease is countered by the fact that it ranks second in the nation in deaths linked to asbestos exposure. Between 1999 and 2013 a reported 14,248 Florida residents died from malignant mesothelioma, asbestosis or asbestos-related lung cancer, and the reasons for this are clear — until asbestos was identified as a carcinogen, the state was home to five asbestos processing plants, as well as many other asbestos-contaminated occupations and environments.
The toxic settings that endangered countless Floridians’ lives included oil refineries and shipyards, power plants and auto mechanic shops. Construction sites, factories and serving in the military service all posed real dangers, while the state’s population of mesothelioma victims is continually expanded by a large number of retirees who choose its warmth for their golden years, only to be diagnosed with the fatal disease once they’ve relocated.
When Florida residents are diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma, they can turn to the law firm of Rebecca S. Vinocur for legal help guided by compassion and empathy.
