The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We have made it our goal to play the supporting role in anyone dealing with a mesothelioma diagnosis. This week we have found a report that focuses on a specific subdivision of those at risk for mesothelioma; construction workers. The report lists out where asbestos hazards might be found in a home constructed during the decades previously mentioned. The list should serve as a point of reference for those who worked in the construction field. Contact the center at 866-714-6466 if any of the following products or locations in the home sound like something you may have come in contact with.”

The Center says, "In a typical month about 20% of all the diagnosed victims of mesothelioma we talk to either worked in residential or commercial construction. Others were often involved in maintenance at a manufacturing or industrial workplace. In almost all cases we are talking about exposure that occurred of many decades.

It's incredibly vital for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma who worked in construction, or maintenance to call us at 866-714-6466, so we can give these individuals instant access to the nation's top mesothelioma lawyers.
