Do You Need An Asbestos Attorney?

Some of these asbestos products remain in old structures and are usually harmless — as long as they’re not disturbed. Workers usually were exposed to the harmful natural mineral while on the job, but others, including their family members, also faced secondary exposures at home and environmental exposures in communities that mined or processed asbestos.
Occupations that are at high risk for exposure in older buildings include firefighters, contractors, demolition workers, electricians and plumbers.
Potential Factors Include
- Working at an asbestos mine or asbestos processing plant
- Working in a high-risk occupational setting, such as the construction or automotive industries
- Serving on military ships or facilities built with products containing asbestos
- Living in a residential area near an asbestos mine
- Disturbing asbestos products during a home renovation without proper safety measures
