How can I find out whether I have been exposed to asbestos?
The first thing to look at is your work history. Past asbestos exposure may be rather unclear if you never held a position that clearly came into direct contact with asbestos, like a contractor who installed asbestos insulation or a construction worker who built ships for the military. If this is the case, you will need to determine whether any of your work-related duties may have led you to encounter asbestos or asbestos-containing materials.
Once it has been determined whether any of your employers may have contributed to your dangerous exposure to asbestos fibers, we can investigate further in order to pinpoint exactly when and where that exposure may have occurred. For instance, we would want to look into precisely what building materials you worked with if you were a construction worker. Then, we may be able to move forward with your case and take legal action against the responsible party.
If you believe that you or your loved one was exposed to asbestos on the job – especially if you have developed asbestosis or mesothelioma – you should consider working with a lawyer to pursue legal action.
