Asbestos Exposure From Work to Home: No Amount Is Safe
Each year, approximately 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma. The cause of this rare cancer of the lining of the lungs, abdomen or heart is asbestos exposure. Even small doses and short-term work around it can lead to the disease.
Household and secondary exposure can also cause the disease. It is a myth that only men who worked in certain industries are at risk.
Because the disease can take decades to develop, even up to 70 years, determining where and when exposure occurred is often a challenge. Legal recourse is available, however, once you determine which companies recklessly, negligently or knowingly exposed you to asbestos.
In our white paper, we provide some background information on why asbestos was initially viewed as a miracle and the products and processes that continue to use it. You will also learn about:
- Mesothelioma treatment options
- Which Kentucky industries and plants had exposure risks
- Household and secondary contact that may cause the disease
- When to get legal advice
A diagnosis of mesothelioma often brings many more questions than answers. Read ” Asbestos Fibers From Kentucky Workplace to the Home: Is Any Exposure Safe?” for a Kentucky-specific resource.
