Who Is At Serious Risk For Asbestos-Related Illnesses?

There are, however, specific professions that have shown an increased risk of exposure, including:

  • Plumbers
  • Carpenters
  • Electricians
  • Shipyard workers/longshoremen
  • Power plant workers
  • Automotive workers
  • Pipe fitters
  • Boiler mechanics
  • Roofers
  • Masons
  • Railroad workers
  • Demolition workers

Common defendants in asbestos exposure lawsuits include:

  • Business owners/employers
  • Manufacturers of products that contain asbestos
