Occupations at Risk for Asbestos Exposure

For many mesothelioma patients, an investigation reveals multiple exposures during their working life. We work fast to identify likely work sites or products with known asbestos links, and then to narrow it down to specific companies and employers that sold, manufactured or used those products.

Factory workers, miners, auto mechanics and a wide range of other innocent people were also unwittingly exposed, including nearby residents who breathed air laden with asbestos fibers.

And sadly, many spouses and children of contaminated workers developed these ravaging diseases from second-hand asbestos exposure.

We Can Relate to Your Ordeal

Our principal attorney, Jay Throneberry, has personal experience with the heartache of mesothelioma. His father-in-law worked for years in a factory and died in 2004 from the asbestos-related cancer. Since then, Throneberry Law Group has been dedicated to serving other victims and their family members.

No firm will work harder to secure your rightful compensation for the medical care, the lost earnings and the pain and suffering. Call us at 888-506-1131 for a free consultation. We will travel anywhere in the U.S. to meet with clients and advocate for them.

Our research has lead us to some of the occupations most commonly associated with mesothelioma and asbestos disease include:
