Asbestos Cancer

Asbestos Cancer Attorneys in New York City Who Know How to Maximize Compensation for Clients

Asbestos exposure is linked to mesothelioma, a deadly cancer of the lungs. Workers exposed to asbestos decades ago - even as far back as the 1940s - are now beginning to show mesothelioma symptoms because of the long latency period of the disease. Typically people who worked in trades or did manual labor are at risk. But it's not just the worker who is at risk of asbestos cancer. A spouse or children of the worker may have been exposed when the worker came home with asbestos dust on his clothes.

If you worked in an industry or environment where asbestos was present for even as little as a month or two, you may be at risk of developing mesothelioma. Industries and environments where asbestos was present include construction sites, demolition sites, shipyards, paper mills, heating and cooling repair, automotive repair, and roofing.

Asbestos is no longer extensively used, but was once a common product. Asbestos exposure in the workplace was not unusual. When asbestos particles become airborne due to deterioration or damage, the people working or living in the environment are at risk of becoming sick.

The following are trades or occupations where there is a high risk of asbestos exposure:

  • Appliance shop workers
  • Railroad workers
  • Mechanics
  • Insulators
  • Ship builders
  • Construction workers
  • Mining
  • Pipefitters
