Who Was Responsible For Your Asbestos Exposure?
Asbestos exposure decades ago can lead to a mesothelioma diagnosis today. Although some people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma may immediately know where their exposure occurred, others may not. In some cases, 40 or 50 years may have passed between the time of exposure and the diagnosis.
Individuals are encouraged to seek legal help even when the source of exposure is unknown:
- Workplace exposure: Many people were exposed to asbestos at work. Individuals who worked in shipbuilding, paper mills, oil refineries, chemical plants, and textile mills may have been exposed.
- Family exposure: Individuals who were exposed at work could have brought asbestos particles home, inadvertently exposing family members this dangerous mineral.
- Other sources of exposure: Individuals may have been exposed by certain household products. Individuals may have been exposed by living close to a worksite where asbestos products were used – or living in an area where asbestos occurs naturally. There are other potential sources of asbestos exposure.
