Institutes: Asbestos Exposure
People that worked in and lived around Institutes that contained asbestos containing products may be at risk for developing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers in their lifetime.
Workers that helped build or tear down old Institutes that contained toxic asbestos products that exposed them to toxic asbestos dust and fibers are at a higher risk.
If you have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma or an Asbestos related cancer you may be eligible to receive compensation from responsible asbestos companies and manufacturers for your asbestos exposure.
Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers can lay dormant in people for 10-50 years. Asbestos exposure is responsible for approximately 10,000 deaths each year in the United States.
If you or a family member has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma or an Asbestos-related disease, we are here to help you file a claim.
Institutes and Asbestos Exposure
- Mesothelioma cases are found in 9 out of every 1 million people.
- 1 in every 125 males over 55 will be diagnosed with an asbestos related cancer in their lifetime.
- 1 in 3 U. S. Veterans will develop an asbestos related disease in their lifetime.
- In the last 40 years more than 6,000 asbestos companies have been named in Mesothelioma and Asbestos claims.
- There have been more than 600,000 Mesothelioma and asbestos-related claims with an estimated value of 275 billion.
Workers diagnosed with Mesothelioma have complained that they were not given any warning, training or respiratory protective gear when handling, installing, loading, repairing, or removing asbestos-containing products.
Asbestos is most dangerous when inhaled or ingested. Most workers were daily exposed to toxic asbestos dust and fibers where they inhaled and ingested them without any protection in their workplace.
More than 20 million American workers have been exposed to asbestos with the heaviest usage in the U. S. during 1930-1980.
