Learning Some Sources of Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos exposure can cause a number of serious health issues, such as mesothelioma. As any good mesothelioma lawyer can tell you, there are many ways a person can be exposed to this nasty and extremely dangerous substance. Any ingestion or inhalation of it from any source can result in later development of mesothelioma, a slow growing cancer that affects the protective lining of certain internal organs (most often the lungs). The following are a few different ways a person can be exposed to asbestos that many people are unaware of. If you are under any of these threats, you might want to consider wearing protective clothing and a respirator.

Often, a person who remodels homes or other structures will come into contact with asbestos. This is because asbestos-containing materials were commonly used in construction prior to 1980. In remodeling structures, many of these asbestos-containing materials are torn apart during demolition, releasing asbestos fibers into the air. For example, old heating ducts are often coated with asbestos paper, which was commonly used as an insulator. The process of removing these ducts is very dangerous without proper protective equipment, and Baron and Budd, P.C. deal with many clients who have been exposed to asbestos through HVAC and other kinds of renovation-related processes.

Another example is flooring related asbestos exposure. For example, for many years certain types of flooring in in some homes and businesses were finished with flooring materials that contained asbestos. While this flooring generally poses no threat while it remains in the house, it is the removal (as common during replacement) of the flooring that causes material damage that releases deadly asbestos into the air where it can be inhaled.

There are many ways a person can be exposed to asbestos, though most commonly exposure happens on the job. Certain industries – such as construction, plumbing, and aviation – are known to be higher risk for asbestos exposure due to the common use of the material in those fields.

Because mesothelioma symptoms can take 20 years or more to present, it is often difficult for a patient to know when he or she was exposed, unless there is history of employment within one of the high-risk fields. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, a mesothelioma lawyer from Baron and Budd, P.C. can possibly help you determine where the initial exposure took place. Depending on the answer, you may be a good candidate for a mesothelioma lawsuit. Compensation from such a lawsuit can help greatly with the financial burden of undergoing treatment for your disease.
