Connecticut Asbestos Exposure

Connecticut

While Connecticut is one of the smaller states in the U.S., there are a number of jobsite locations where asbestos exposure may have occurred. In fact, numbers indicate that there may be as many as 600 locations within the boundaries of the state of Connecticut where workers could have been exposed to asbestos while on the job. The majority of asbestos jobsites are industrial in nature but asbestos exposure was also possible at Connecticut schools, military buildings, submarine bases and smaller factories.

Asbestos was used in home and industrial construction materials, piping, insulations, and even industrial cloth. Asbestos is extremely fire-retardant and was a popular fire-proofing material used in Connecticut and across the United States in general.

If you worked at any of these companies and/or jobsites in Connecticut, there is a possibility that you may have been exposed to harmful asbestos which is known to cause mesothelioma.

Asbestos Disease in Connecticut

Death rates associated with asbestos disease in Connecticut are roughly on par with those across the United States. In the roughly 20 years since the true hazards of asbestos exposure became publicly known, there have been roughly 500 deaths attributed to asbestos disease. Mesothelioma is the most common cause of death associated with asbestos exposure.

While mesothelioma cancer is the most common cause of death to be linked directly to asbestos exposure, other health complications, including asbestosis and small cell lung cancer also have some causal relationship with asbestos according to clinical studies.
