Clients often ask, “Why is asbestos so dangerous?” Asbestos is an indestructible fiber that is so minute, it is easily breathed into your lungs and becomes embedded there. That indestructible fiber is what ultimately causes serious asbestos diseases.

We have represented countless families who have asbestos diseases. Watch this video by experienced Buffalo asbestos exposure attorney Michael A. Ponterio to learn why asbestos is so dangerous. If you believe you were exposed to asbestos and have been injured, please call us.  We understand why asbestos is so dangerous and can help recover compensation for your injuries.
