Who’s at risk?
Construction, railroad, automotive, and shipbuilding industry workers are more likely to have had exposure to Asbestos. Asbestos can be found in any industrial or residential building built or refurbished before the year 2000. Long-standing second-hand exposure to family members, such as the spouses and children of those who carry asbestos home with them from the workplace are also at risk. Living in a home that was built with asbestos, especially if renovations are improperly handled, can expose victims to significant amounts of asbestos that lead to serious and permanent injuries to health.
