Inhalation of asbestos fibers can cause mesothelioma or asbestos lung cancer. Workers from practically all trades were exposed to asbestos from many trades in the workplace. More than 5,000 common products contain asbestos. Most of us have been exposed to asbestos throughout our lives in small quantities. Workers at highest risk for asbestos exposure are those who have jobs involving prolonged exposure to large quantities of asbestos and asbestos Products.

Asbestos has been used to create thousands of industrial and commercial products over the years, putting the lives of workers who use and create these products in jeopardy. While many uses for asbestos were banned in the mid-1970’s, the risk from exposure continues today due to mesothelioma’s long latency (inactive) period of anywhere between 15-40 years. Today, asbestos continues to be a threat to workers exposed through their occupations and in buildings that were erected prior to the ban.

Asbestos fibers are so toxic, that industrial and trade worker’s families may be exposed to mesothelioma through particles that cling to the worker’s clothing, shoes, skin and hair. This type of “second-hand” exposure.

Asbestos has played, and in some instances still plays, a key role in the textile, construction, military, refinery, railroad, automotive and shipbuilding industries, affecting thousands of workers throughout the world. Most mesothelioma patients were exposed to asbestos fibers on the job or in the workplace in what is known as occupational exposure.

If you or someone you know has been injured by asbestos products you consult with an experienced asbestos mesothelioma lawyer.
