Which worksites are at risk for asbestos exposure?

Nuclear PowerAccording to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), 10,000 Americans die each year as a result of asbestos-related injury or disease – that’s 30 deaths each day. Asbestos-related diseases can take up to 50 years to develop, meaning that the illnesses patients are suffering from now could be the result of asbestos exposure from any time in the 1950s to 1970s, when asbestos use was rampant. In 1989, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned all new uses of asbestos; however risk of asbestos exposure is still a concern today among workers in industrial areas like Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Consulting an asbestos lawyer is the first step if you believe you have been exposed to asbestos at a worksite.

Asbestos Exposure in the Workplace

Exposure to asbestos at worksites is still common among many trades – including car mechanics, construction workers, and other trades. Pennsylvania ranks in the top five in the nation for the states with the greatest number of asbestosis and mesothelioma cases. The highest rates of asbestos-related disease nationwide were in Los Angeles, California; Cook County, Illinois; Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania; King County, Washington; and Harris County, Texas.

Asbestos-related lawsuits began appearing in the 1930s. Despite manufacturers having evidence of the dangers of asbestos exposure before the 1930s, they engaged in deception and cover-ups to protect themselves financially, disregarding the negative impact their choices had on the lives of workers and consumers. Asbestos can still be found in many materials to this day and workers continue to be exposed to this lethal carcinogen.

If you have been exposed to asbestos for a prolonged period of time or have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related illness, we at Shein Law encourage you to contact our Pennsylvania or New Jersey offices online or call 1-877-SHEINLAW (743-4652) to speak with an asbestos lawyer today.
