Asbestosis / Mesothelioma Claims
Seattle Personal Injury Attorney
Asbestos is a naturally occurring substance that is flame resistant. It has been used by people for hundreds of years, but until the late 1980s, it was not known that it was toxic and could cause the occupational diseases of asbestosis and mesothelioma.
Certain types of workers were most at risk for on-the-job injury and toxic exposure . Family members who lived with them were also at risk because the worker could bring home asbestos fibers on their clothing.
If you, or a family member you lived with, worked in the following types of jobs prior to 1990, you may be at risk for asbestos exposure and you should contact The Law Office of Joanne R. Werner to learn more about financial compensation that may be available to help you.
