Exposure to asbestos has caused many workers to contract fatal mesothelioma, sometimes even years after exposure. The harmful mineral was widely used up until the mid-1970’s as a fire-retardant insulation and still poses a high risk to industry workers who were directly exposed to it.
Workers were exposed to asbestos as it floated around in the air as small particles in construction and building sites. Those who worked frequently around asbestos have a greater chance of contracting mesothelioma. The following industries pose the highest risk:
Those who have worked directly with asbestos may have indirectly caused other people to be exposed to the mineral as well. Asbestos can attach to clothing and be carried around unknowingly by an unassuming individual.
If you have been exposed to asbestos through your job or work environment, you may be entitled to compensation. The mesothelioma attorneys at Phillips Law Group will fight to maximize compensation on your behalf.
