Did high-risk jobs for asbestos exposure cause mesothelioma? You have a right to seek lawsuit compensation.
Many jobs exposed workers to asbestos dust and fibers, leading to mesothelioma cancer.
According to the government, working in jobs with asbestos is the major risk factor for mesothelioma.
A history of asbestos exposure in people's jobs is reported in about 70 percent to 80 percent of all cases.
Asbestos has been widely used in many industrial products, including cement, brake linings, roof shingles, flooring products, textiles, and insulation.
If tiny asbestos particles become airborne, especially during the jobs related to the manufacturing process, they may be inhaled or swallowed, and can cause serious health issues.
In addition to mesothelioma, exposure to asbestos in jobs increases the risk of lung cancer, asbestosis (a noncancerous, chronic lung ailment), and other cancers, such as those of the larynx and kidney.
Many workers have come forward to say their jobs led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
