At-Risk Occupations

Anyone can be exposed to asbestos. However, people who worked with and around the dangerous substance are at the highest risk of exposure. If you or a loved one works or worked around asbestos and now suffers from mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, it is important to consult with an experienced asbestos litigation attorney.

Were You Exposed to Asbestos at Work?

In most cases, mesothelioma can be linked to asbestos exposure at work. At-risk occupations for asbestos include:

  • Construction workers

  • Auto mechanics

Remember, you didn’t have to work in one of these fields to be exposed to asbestos. If your loved one worked in an at-risk occupation, you could have been exposed by coming into contact with his or her clothing. However you were exposed, our attorneys are here to help you seek the compensation you need and deserve.
