The Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO), an organization dedicated to serving as the voice of asbestos victims, has praised the passage of a bill sponsored by Senator Patty Murray (D-WA). 

The Ban Asbestos in America Act of 2007 was passed by the U.S. Senate. The Act is an effort to ban all production and use of asbestos in America, launch public education campaigns to raise awareness about its dangers, and expand research and treatment of diseases caused by asbestos.

The Senate should be commended for passing this monumental act. Hopefully the House will follow suit and pass the legislation, which will require a full ban on asbestos.

The occurrence of asbestos-related diseases, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis, is growing out of control. Studies estimate that during the next decade, 100,000 victims in the United States will die of an asbestos related disease – equaling 30 deaths per day.

Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) was founded by asbestos victims and their families in 2004. ADAO seeks to give asbestos victims a united voice to help ensure that their rights are fairly represented and protected, and raise public awareness about the dangers of asbestos exposure and the often-deadly asbestos related diseases.

ADAO is funded through voluntary contributions and staffed by volunteers. For more information visit www.asbestosdiseaseawareness.org. Our firm is currently handling a number of mesothelioma cases. Mike Andrews, who is the lead lawyer on those cases, can be contacted at (334) 269-2343.

Respectful, understanding, efficient and compassionate

Beasley Allen is one of the most professional organizations I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They are respectful, understanding, efficient, and above all compassionate. They take the best care of their clients in every way possible. They keep us informed and aware of things involved in their clients cases. Their counsel is stellar in the industry. I would highly recommend them to others in their time of need and I have done so.
