5 Occupations Susceptible to Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is an extremely aggressive form of cancer, and its only known cause is exposure to asbestos. Currently, mesothelioma has no known cure, though researchers are daily searching for more effective treatments. The use of asbestos was formally banned in the United States in 1979 because of its dangerous side effects, but thousands of people were exposed to asbestos before its official ban, and are now suffering the consequences.

Asbestos was commonly used by construction workers because it is a strong and fire-resistant substance. For this reason, many construction workers were and are at risk of suffering from exposure. If you or someone you know was exposed to asbestos at work and is now dealing with an asbestos-related condition, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Contact the experienced mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-781-3955 to discuss your situation.

Dangerous Jobs

If you are or were a construction worker or an emergency responder in previous decades, you may be susceptible to mesothelioma, particularly if your occupation involved the use of this dangerous substance. Five occupations that may have encountered asbestos or asbestos-containing materials include:

  • Piping / plumbers
  • Drywallers
  • Floor installers
  • Demolition teams
  • Firefighters / rescue teams

These are only five of the jobs that may have exposed workers to asbestos poisoning, possibly leading to mesothelioma or other serious complications.
