Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma, but many people don’t know how they were exposed to the substance. Knowing your asbestos exposure history is essential to securing mesothelioma compensation, and we can help you discover where you were exposed.

Learn Your Asbestos Exposure History

Occupational asbestos exposure is the most common link to mesothelioma, but it’s not the only way you can develop this life-altering cancer. Some patients develop the disease due to secondhand exposure, most likely from a loved one who worked with asbestos.

However, remembering 20, 30 or even 40 years back to learn how your mesothelioma formed is difficult. Many people also don’t know which jobs or locations involved asbestos.

We at Mesothelioma Guide have an easy-to-use tool to help connect your disease to instances of asbestos exposure. Search your city and state for all our known asbestos exposure locations to get a head start on securing mesothelioma compensation.
