Exposure To Asbestos
In some cases, our clients know exactly where and how they were exposed to asbestos. Most asbestos exposure cases are work-related. Workers in factories, plants and the military may have been exposed to large quantities of asbestos during the course of their work.
Mechanics, electricians and construction workers often dealt with products containing asbestos, which was used in ceiling and floor tiles, insulation, drywall and many other industrial and residential products due to its heat- and fire-resistant properties. Workers in chemical plants, power plants, shipyards and other industrial sites were regularly exposed to asbestos prior to the exposure limit put in place in 1972.
Compensation For Workplace Illnesses And Injuries
Mesothelioma often presents mild symptoms in the early stages. The unfortunate result is that the cancer may be allowed to progress without proper treatment. If untreated, it can be fatal. If you have been exposed to asbestos or have developed mesothelioma and suspect that asbestos may have been the cause, our personal injury lawyer can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
