As you can see from the products listed above, certain professions such as construction, roofing, mechanics and shipbuilding carry a higher risk of asbestos exposure than others. Common asbestos-related diseases these workers may be in danger of developing include lung cancer and mesothelioma, a cancer in which malignant tumors form in the lining of internal organs, most commonly the lungs.

What You Need To Know

It is important to know that if you are a victim of an asbestos-related disease, you may have legal rights. Under federal and state laws, victims of asbestos infections have the right to file legal claims to seek compensation for their losses and suffering.
