Knowing If You Have a Legal Case
Hundreds of thousands of people have been exposed to asbestos, most often through their occupations. Before its official national ban in the United States, asbestos was frequently used in construction materials across the U.S., exposing many workers and their families to its dangerous fibers. Many of those who were in charge of manufacturing and construction knew about the dangers of asbestos and concealed them from workers, leaving workers blindly exposed to this hazardous substance. However, those who were wrongfully exposed to asbestos may be able to take legal action against those responsible.

Signs You Should Take Legal Action
Although some people were exposed to asbestos without any wrongdoing involved, many individuals were exposed without knowing that they were in danger. Some signs that you may have a legal case against those responsible for your asbestos exposure include:
- You worked in the construction, demolition, or manufacturing industries or you were in the military
- You have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related condition
- Your employer knew about the dangers of asbestos and concealed them from you and other workers
- You were exposed to asbestos in your home and were not told about the presence of asbestos by your landlord / the home’s former owner
Living with an asbestos-related condition can be difficult and financially draining, but you do not have to face this situation alone.
