Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in Alaska is important because it means we are familiar with Alaska job sites where asbestos exposure occurred.
Asbestos is a deadly mineral that has been used in thousands of products in multiple industries including manufacturing, steel working, shipbuilding and more. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested they increase a person’s risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma.
A number of work sites throughout Alaska have been linked to asbestos exposure. Among the more common uses for asbestos in Alaska was insulation. Since Alaska is associated with extreme temperatures, nearly all buildings required a great deal of insulation to conserve heat and prevent temperature transfer. Not only would asbestos be included in foam insulation, but also it would also be used in floor and ceiling tiles.
The seafood processing industry in Alaska also heavily used asbestos. Storage of raw seafood requires several layers of refrigeration, and asbestos was used in the insulation material for these refrigeration units. While shipbuilding was not a major industry in Alaska, shipyards were used to maintain naval and fishing vessels which most likely also contained asbestos. Asbestos material was used in all aspects of shipbuilding, and those who serviced older vessels are especially at risk of asbestos exposure.
Our experienced attorneys have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures and they are ready to help you and your family as well.
