Illinois Mesothelioma Lawyers

Over the last century, Illinois has had a rich economic growth across industries such as: coal, agriculture, manufacturing, petroleum and more. Unfortunately, as Illinois mesothelioma lawyers know, this has also exposed thousands of Illinois residents to harmful effects of asbestos exposure.

Even though this material has proven effective as a fireproofing and heat resistant insulator, inhaling fibers from friable asbestos can cause mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer. Sadly, this asbestos risk also impacts the lives of loved ones and families of workers, since those exposed can track asbestos home with them, causing secondary exposure.

If you or a loved one has been recently diagnosed with an asbestos-related health condition, it’s important you contact the legal team at Mesowatch today.

Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma in Illinois

Illinois asbestos laws have had to be enacted within recent years simply because asbestos-exposure was so prevalent in the past before the high risk asbestos industries in Illinois were closely regulated. As a result, many former and current workers are being diagnosed with terminal illnesses like mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis in Illinois.

Current asbestos laws recognize the need for regulations and compensation in the state because asbestos played a large role in the economic growth of both Illinois and the country as a whole. Heavy machinery and materials that frequently came into contact with high heat (or those that were meant to be impervious to high heat) commonly contained asbestos, which is a powerful heat resistor. However, as we now know, this insulation carries a price and in Illinois, exposure to asbestos has caused thousands of illnesses with deadly prognoses.

If you or a loved one are one of the thousands of people who has suffered from asbestos exposure in Illinois and has been given an asbestos-related diagnosis, call Mesowatch.
It can be difficult to know where and how to take the first step after an asbestos-related diagnosis, but there are Illinois asbestos laws in place to help you. You just need the guidance and experience of someone you can trust, and that’s Mesowatch. We know how difficult this experience is for you and we can help.

Industries Associated with Asbestos in Illinois

Occupational asbestos exposure in Illinois was common among workers in the state’s petroleum and coal mining industries. Illinois workers in these industries were often around insulated machinery, specialized work surfaces, and more which contained or made use of asbestos as an insulating agent or building material.

It’s very important to keep in mind that Illinois asbestos occupational exposure wasn’t only experienced by those in direct contact with the toxic substance. Secondary asbestos exposure can occur when someone directly exposed to asbestos accidentally passes the toxic mineral fibers to others. In cases of occupational exposure to asbestos in Illinois, fibers were often trapped and shaken free from hair, clothing, equipment bags, or any type of material that captures fibers.

In addition to the petroleum industry, the asbestos industry in Illinois saw exposure by workers in the agriculture and manufacturing sectors. This sadly means that thousands of Illinois employees and innocent bystanders were exposed to harmful asbestos. Mesowatch and our legal team wants to help all Illinois asbestos occupational exposure victims.

If you or a loved one was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer, or another asbestos-related condition, please contact Mesowatch today. We are available any time to help you through this difficult time.


Asbestos High Risk Occupations in the State of Illinois

The asbestos industry in Illinois thrived during the 20th century. Due to the number of manufacturing processes and the popularity of specialized equipment using asbestos materials means occupational exposure to asbestos in Illinois was common. The reason asbestos was utilized so frequently in Illinois is because the hazardous material was very effective for fireproofing and improving heat resistance.

For example, petroleum processing facilities can often be extremely dangerous and hazardous. The amount of energy and heat that can be generated poses many risks for workers, especially due to the risk of working with combustible materials. That’s why nearly every part of petroleum processing relied on asbestos, from refining crude oil to actually transporting it.

Illinois asbestos occupational exposure has affected thousands of people, and it will continue to do so. For anyone whose life has been affected by asbestos exposure as a result of a mesothelioma diagnosis, Mesowatch can help. A free confidential, case evaluation to see if you qualify for a Illinois asbestos lawsuit is only a phone call or email away.
