Who is Affected by Asbestos?

Harmful Effects Of Asbestos Affect Many People

The people we have represented in asbestos litigation over the past several decades have come from all walks of life. Almost anyone who worked in an industrial setting certainly had exposure to asbestos-containing materials in one form or another. Clearly, the concentration of certain occupations in our region — including Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio — has influenced the cases we have handled, but many who become ill due to asbestos could never have expected it would happen to them.

Our experienced attorneys at Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., have the skill and ability to investigate where and when asbestos exposure occurred and what manufacturer or supplier may be liable. No matter how much information you have, if you suspect asbestos may have caused deadly illness in your family, please contact us for a free consultation.

Direct, Frequent Exposure On The Job Is Only ONE Possible Cause

While people who have worked in industrial settings with a great deal of asbestos exposure are at the greatest risk to develop serious health problems, their relatives and people completely unrelated to these industries may also develop asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma and lung cancer. There have been numerous cases of spouses and children of workers who have contracted asbestos-related diseases as a result of being exposed to the asbestos dust brought home on the work clothing of their husbands, fathers, mothers or other family members.

Many times a husband, wife, parent or child contracts mesothelioma or lung cancer never having personally worked with asbestos products. Their exposure to asbestos dust occurred when others used the asbestos product near them, or by shaking out and washing clothes covered with asbestos dust.

Our clients have included people who worked as art teachers, dental technicians and homemakers, all of which were exposed to asbestos in small and unseen quantities.
