Des Moines Mesothelioma Lawyer

Des Moines, the capital and the largest city in the state of Iowa, is situated in Polk County. In the past, its economy was mainly driven by railroad and coal mining industries. As the city expanded, more industries came into existence, which include power generation, chemical manufacturing, wholesale and retail trading, and technology. All these industries heavily used and relied on asbestos for fire resistance, heat resistance, and insulation purposes. As a result, thousands of Des Moines workers suffered asbestos exposure on a daily basis. A number of them have developed life-threatening asbestos-related ailments including malignant mesothelioma.
