Occupations Associated With Mesothelioma

Dallas Mesothelioma & Asbestos-Exposure Attorneys

Many people were exposed to the hazards of toxic asbestos during the early years of their career—more than 20 or 30 years ago. What workers didn't know was that their chosen occupation put them at risk for developing cancer.

As Dallas asbestos litigation attorneys, the lawyers of Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, advocate for the interests of people suffering from mesothelioma caused by occupational hazards or other methods of asbestos exposure. We help clients obtain compensation that is necessary to alleviate the financial strain associated with mesothelioma diagnosis and treatment.

Asbestos in the Workplace: Am I at Risk?

Because the symptoms of mesothelioma are generalized and similar to many other more common health conditions, knowledge of your work history could play a critical role in diagnosing mesothelioma. Asbestos was a cost-effective, natural-occurring mineral that was used in commercial products for various industries throughout the 20th century, particularly in the years surrounding World War II. Asbestos still remains in some new products today. However, its use is heavily regulated.

Occupations that may have involved a high level of asbestos exposure during this time include:

  • Carpenters
  • Electricians
  • Bricklayers
  • Miners
  • Insulation workers
  • Factory workers
  • Shipyard workers
  • Other tradesmen
  • Asbestos textile workers
  • Construction workers
  • Building demolition workers
  • People working in oil refineries
  • Members of the Navy and other branches of the military
  • Mechanics in the automobile manufacturing industry

Although the risk for asbestos exposure is not as significant today as it was decades ago, many workers may be exposed to asbestos today in various contexts, such as construction workers performing building renovations, building demolition workers, and other workers. Additionally, the devastating destruction of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001 may have exposed millions of New Yorkers to asbestos-contaminated air.

Is Your Former Occupation Associated with Mesothelioma?

While not everyone who was exposed to asbestos is at risk for developing mesothelioma, because it is the only known cause of mesothelioma, it is a critical issue that should be discussed with your doctor—even if you are not experiencing symptoms.
