More than 12 occupational groups may be at high risk of gastrointestinal cancer

A study published in 1997 discovered a high prevalence of gastrointestinal/stomach cancer within 12 different groups of workers whose job entailed daily workplace asbestos exposure.

Sheet metal workers, mechanical workers, as well as production supervisors and managers are only some of the employees whose wellbeing may be at risk.

Ingested asbestos fibers can accumulate over years in various regions of the gastrointestinal tract, such as the stomach or small intestine, and will eventually lead to the development of malignant tumors such as gastrointestinal cancer.

Pursuing gastrointestinal/stomach cancer cases may prove to be an extremely challenging process due to the lack of sufficient medical evidence supporting a clear correlation between the cancer and exposure to asbestos. However, our lawyers are willing to help you obtain the financial compensation you are entitled to. We are specialized in asbestos cases and practiced law for over 20 years now, and have represented thousands of clients in their asbestos claims with a high rate of success.
