Which Workers Are Most At Risk For Developing Mesothelioma?
Through its wide use in the 20th century, many people in Wisconsin were exposed to asbestos. Those with only minor exposure may not have experienced any negative health effects. Others, especially those who work in certain high-risk industries, may have developed mesothelioma.
If you or a loved one is suffering from mesothelioma or another health condition related to the exposure of asbestos, the attorneys at Alpert & Fellows, will protect your rights. We provide knowledgeable and compassionate representation to victims of asbestos exposure in Sheboygan, Green Bay, Manitowoc and throughout Wisconsin.
With more than 70 years of combined legal experience, our lawyers understand what it takes to recover compensation for your illness. We will diligently work to help you and your family move forward from this difficult time.
Today, the government heavily regulated the use of asbestos. However, contrary to popular belief, asbestos is not a banned substance. As certain industries continue to use asbestos, some workers will be at a higher risk of developing mesothelioma.
Some of the highest risk occupations include:
- Construction workers
- Power plant employees
- Industrial workers
- Factory employees
- Shipyard workers
Our attorneys are committed to helping workers file for damages for medical, lost wages and the pain and suffering caused by mesothelioma. Whether it is submitting a claim against an asbestos trust or filing a lawsuit, our attorneys will do whatever is necessary to pursue justice on your behalf.
