Learn About Mesothelioma And Asbestos Exposure
Roughly 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year in the United States. Mesothelioma is a rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos use significantly increased after World War II, exposing thousands of workers and their families to this dangerous material. Even though asbestos began being removed from products in the mid-1970s, asbestos-contaminated talc was substituted in many of those same products, further endangering workers and their families.
Individuals can suffer from serious complications after being exposed to asbestos, from just a one-time exposure to years of exposure. Asbestos exposure can cause mesothelioma, lung cancer, ovarian cancer and asbestosis, all of which can take years or decades off a person’s life.
You have rights if you were harmed by asbestos exposure. We will help you seek the compensation you deserve.
Who Was Exposed To Asbestos?
From the 1940s until the 1990s, workers in various industries had a high risk of asbestos exposure. Workers who were commonly exposed to asbestos include (this is by no means an exhaustive list):
- Refinery workers
- Pulp and paper mill workers
- Military personnel
- Construction workers
- Automotive mechanics
How do you know when you were exposed? Our lawyers will get to know you and investigate when you may have been exposed to asbestos to see if you have a claim.
Mesothelioma symptoms do not show up right away after asbestos exposure. In fact, it can take decades for mesothelioma to be diagnosed. This can make it difficult to determine exactly when you were exposed and who can be held liable. The good news is that we are here to help you every step of the way.
