Asbestos and Mesothelioma in Michigan

In the past, the asbestos industry in Michigan operated with impunity, largely because there did not always exist regulations and attention on the dangers of asbestos exposure. Now, laws are in place to help the thousands of people who have been exposed to asbestos either in the home or through their occupation, and now face a mesothelioma, lung cancer, or asbestosis diagnosis.

Asbestos played an integral role in the steel and automobile industry around of which the economy of Michigan is based. Both of these industries use equipment that is subject to very high levels of heat and required a strong insulator to protect both the machinery and workers.

Asbestos is an abundant natural resource which is well-known for its heat resistant properties. In fact, it was even used in personal protective gear and sewn into clothing worn by employees. These asbestos containing items protected workers from heat, but caused harm by exposing them to the risk of fatal diseases decades later caused by inhaling or swallowing the asbestos.

If you or a loved has recently been diagnosed with an asbestos-related health condition and you were one of the thousands of Michigan residents subject to exposure to asbestos in Michigan, contact Mesowatch for immediate legal assistance today.

We can help those dealing with asbestos exposure and resulting mesothelioma in Michigan follow the most important steps, and guide you through taking advantage of Michigan asbestos laws to help you seek justice from the parties responsible for your asbestos exposure. Mesowatch will work with you as a legal team to make sure you get the most compensation the law allows.

Industries Associated with Asbestos in Michigan

Michigan asbestos occupational exposure is generally seen in the automotive and steel industries. Those who work in these industries are often around heavy machinery, work surfaces, equipment components and the like that must be insulated against heavy heat from blast furnaces, smelters and friction. In the past, asbestos was the best known insulator and so was widely used just about everywhere from heavy industry to home building as insulation.

The danger of occupational asbestos exposure in Michigan isn’t just present with workers who come in direct contact, either. Secondary exposure is a real problem. This means that people who have suffered occupational exposure to asbestos in Michigan can bring the fibers home with them when they leave the worksite, carried on clothes, in hair, in equipment and tool bags, and other ways. When they carry these fibers, those with whom they come into contact can then be exposed to asbestos and many years later suffer from mesothelioma or lung cancer.

The steel and automotive industries are also not the only dangers for Michigan asbestos occupational exposure. Before the late 20th century, the material was used in military sites, commercial and industrial sites including brewing companies, chemical plants, oil refineries, power plants and even in homes and schools as insulation.

What this means is that thousands of people have likely been exposed to this deadly material. Mesowatch and our legal team are here to help anyone in Michigan who has been exposed to asbestos and developed an illness as a result.

If you or a loved one are facing mesothelioma, asbestosis or even lung cancer from asbestos exposure, call us any time to talk about your case and start on the road to obtaining justice for your pain and suffering.
