Asbestos

Mesothelioma Lawyers Handling Claims in Minnesota

Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that was commonly used as a fire retardant in insulation and building materials. Asbestos has many beneficial and unique properties that made it an ideal material for use in manufacture. Unfortunately, it was discovered that asbestos leads to many adverse health effects when inhaled or ingested. These damaging conditions include mesothelioma and asbestosis.

Asbestos FibersMany Minnesota citizens have been exposed to asbestos in their homes and workplaces. Because mesothelioma is so commonly seen in workers who have been exposed to asbestos, it is often considered an occupational illness.

The professions most likely to have been exposed to asbestos include:

  • Automobile manufacturers
  • Construction workers
  • Textile manufacturers
  • Wrecking crews
  • Plumbers
  • Electricians
  • Teachers
  • Shipbuilders
  • Chemical/power plant workers
  • Railroad workers

Because the latency period for mesothelioma is so prolonged, you may work in a job that is exposed to asbestos for 50 years and not have symptoms of mesothelioma. Sadly, the damage done by asbestos fibers is generally irreversible.

If you have been exposed to asbestos, it is important to ensure that you notice symptoms of mesothelioma early. Early diagnosis is the key to prolonged survival.
