Over 75 U.S. Occupational Groups Exposed to High Concentrations of Asbestos

Exposure to high concentrations of asbestos occurred preponderantly in the workplace. The use of asbestos in various industries was prevalent before the mid 1980s, the dangers of asbestos were carefully covered up by companies. Between the 1920s and the 1980s, people who worked in construction, maintenance, heavy industry and military were in contact with extremely high concentrations of asbestos. Years later many of these victims have developed serious cancers and diseases, along with their family members whom also got sick, from the asbestos fibers they were bringing home on their clothes and hair, from their work areas where they were handling asbestos containing products.

Veterans, military and navy personnel, suffering from lung cancer, other cancers and pulmonary diseases are entitled to compensation.

Veterans & Asbestos Exposure

In order for us to file an asbestos trust fund claim, you must meet one of the following requirements:

  • You received a medical diagnosis in the last 3 years, such as lung cancer, asbestosis, mesothelioma or another asbestos related cancer, following an environmental or occupational exposure to asbestos.
  • You were employed and worked in one of the high risk asbestos exposure occupations and asbestos fibers have been detected in your lungs. Even if you have not yet developed an asbestos-related condition, the risk is very high and unfortunately, your health will most probably be severely affected in the future. We can file an asbestos claim with the trust funds after a proper diagnosis and you can obtain compensation. Additionally, the sum will substantially increase if you are diagnosed with lung cancer or a type of mesothelioma.

Family Members With Secondary Asbestos Exposure Are Also Eligible for Financial Compensation

The majority of people who are now struggling with a cancerous or asbestos disease have been exposed to high levels of asbestos in the workplace. However, their families were not safe either, as most companies did not require employees to change their clothes after the work shift ended. Thus, significant amounts of toxic asbestos fibers would be carried home, where family members unknowingly inhaled them. Secondary exposure accounts for approximately 8% of all diagnosed asbestos-related cancer cases annually.

If you suffer from mesothelioma or lung cancer and have a loved one who worked directly with asbestos, your disease is very likely to be the result of secondary exposure. Our attorneys can provide you with quality legal assistance and will do all in their power to help you recover fair compensation for your injury.
