Asbestos Exposure & Mesothelioma in Michigan

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used in thousands of products throughout the 20th century due to its strength and heat-resistant properties.

However, asbestos has since been linked to dangerous health conditions like: 

After being inhaled or ingested, asbestos fibers can become lodged in the lining of certain organs and irritate healthy tissues and cells. Over time, the tissues and cells that have been affected by asbestos may mutate and become cancerous.

Mesothelioma can be difficult to diagnose because its symptoms are so similar to those of other illnesses. Symptoms also may not appear for 20-50 years after the initial exposure.

Sokolove Law has registered nurses on staff who can help you understand your mesothelioma diagnosis and treatment options.

We are dedicated to helping those impacted by mesothelioma and asbestos in Michigan pursue justice and compensation.

Contact us today to learn how mesothelioma lawyers in Michigan may be able to help you and your family navigate an asbestos lawsuit.

An asbestos attorney in Michigan can help determine if you may have been at risk of exposure at any of these sites.

Michigan Jobs at Risk of Asbestos Exposure

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), most asbestos exposures happen at work.

Since asbestos is more likely to be found at certain job sites or in certain materials, some occupations can put workers at an increased risk of developing mesothelioma.

Jobs at risk of asbestos exposure include:

  • Auto or aircraft mechanics
  • Boilermakers
  • Cabinet makers
  • Carpenters
  • Construction workers
  • Custodial and maintenance workers
  • Drywall installers
  • Electricians
  • Factory workers
  • Firefighters
  • Insulators
  • Miners
  • Painters
  • Plumbers
  • Shipyard workers
  • U.S. military service members

Even people who have not directly worked around asbestos can be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Often, this is due to secondhand exposure to asbestos.

Secondhand exposure happens when someone who works around asbestos or asbestos products unknowingly brings the fibers home on their clothes or in their hair, potentially exposing their entire household.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, our team may be able to pursue compensation on your behalf. Contact us today to learn more.

Over 99% of mesothelioma lawsuits result in settlements, which means many of our clients never have to step foot in court to receive compensation. 

Asbestos Trust Funds

When the dangers of asbestos were made public, thousands began to file lawsuits against the companies that had knowingly exposed them to this toxic mineral.

Many companies attempted to declare bankruptcy to avoid paying, but the U.S. government ordered these companies to establish asbestos trust funds for victims of asbestos exposure.

$30 Billion

Asbestos trust fund claims don't require you to go to court, and you may be able to access compensation from multiple trust funds if you were exposed to a variety of asbestos-containing products.

VA Claims for Mesothelioma

If you or your loved one developed mesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure during military service, you may be able to file a claim for VA benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
