Mesothelioma Exposure

Kansas and Missouri Mesothelioma Lawyer

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. It affects the lining of the lungs, stomach and other internal organs. The vast majority of mesothelioma cases occur in individuals who were exposed to asbestos before 1989, the year in which its usage was widely banned in the United States.

  • Shipyard / shipbuilding
  • Railroad workers
  • Mining
  • Insulation

  • Construction
