Mesothelioma Lawsuits for Construction Workers

Construction workers who built structures during the years when asbestos-containing materials were at their height are most at risk for mesothelioma. This is because of the long latency period associated with the disease; workers who had asbestos exposure 10, 20, or even 50 years ago are now experiencing mesothelioma symptoms.

If you or a loved one is experiencing mesothelioma symptoms as a result of asbestos exposure in the construction industry, you may be eligible to file a mesothelioma lawsuit. Please fill out the form below to speak with an asbestos attorney about a potential case.
