Could I Have Been Exposed to Asbestos?

Asbestos was widely used in a variety of products for many years. It has properties that make it incredibly strong and resistant to temperature change. Its most common use in the United States was as insulation in buildings, until it was deemed unsafe in 1970s. Asbestos fibers can be inhaled, then becoming lodged in the lungs and leading to a number of severe health problems. The most grave of these conditions is mesothelioma, a form of cancer.

If you have had contact with any of the following built before 1975, you may have been exposed to asbestos:

  • Roofing materials
  • Insulation products and fire-proofing
  • Boilers and heaters
  • Electrical wire conduits
  • Containers for corrosive chemicals
  • Cement pipe
  • Certain textiles, including curtains
  • Pipe coverings
  • Coating/sealant
  • Parts of electric motors
  • Plasters, putties, or caulks

Despite the widespread knowledge of the dangers of asbestos, many products made since the 1970s still contain these harmful fibers. Some of these are:

  • Certain roofing products
  • Vinyl materials, including tile
  • Brake pads
  • Certain automobile parts
  • Some imported building materials like corrugated sheeting and cement pipe
