Missouri Mesothelioma Attorneys
Fighting To Protect Victims of Asbestos Exposure across the Missouri
Being exposed to asbestos can cause a myriad of health problems; most notably mesothelioma, a very rare—but very deadly—type of cancer. But mesothelioma isn’t the only danger: asbestos exposure has also been linked severe respiratory diseases such as asbestosis and lung cancer.
And, sadly, for many years, it surrounded us: used in ships, in manufacturing brake pads and other automotive parts, in our buildings, homes, and rooftops, etc. Once that evidence emerged about how dangerous asbestos was, it was hidden for many years, allowing many workers and their families to continue to be exposed to the dangers. And while, today, many forms of asbestos have been banned, others are still around, still placing public health in danger.

A variety of occupational exposures can lead to asbestos-related problems, including engineering, air conditioning/HVAC, auto mechanics, firefighting, military, mining, oil fields and refineries, painting, construction, plastering, power & chemical plants, teaching, U.S. Navy/shipbuilding and manufacturing, welding, and others.
While many everyday citizens are exposed to asbestos on a daily basis, it is typically those who work with it on a regular basis that are exposed via inhaling asbestos fibers—as well as those who regularly come into contact with these individuals, such as family members (via secondary exposure). These fibers typically get trapped in the lungs and cause inflammation and breathing problems— and can manifest 20 to 50 years after exposure.
Veterans in particular are at risk of health complications related to asbestos exposure due to the frequency of its presence in many areas of the armed forces until around the 1970s.
