Mesothelioma + Asbestos in California


California’s official state mineral is serpentine, a source of chrysotile asbestos. Asbestos is typically found in areas with volcanic mountains and earthquakes, and California is known for both. Early people groups who populated the area lived lightly on the land and did not disturb the serpentine rock, but with today’s rampant population growth and demand for housing, communities such as El Dorado Hills, located east of Sacramento, have seen a big rise in construction activity and as a result more asbestos fibers in the air. If you believe your home may contain asbestos, you could be at risk for asbestos-related diseases and should contact a mesothelioma lawyer.

Other locations in the state are a natural home to asbestos deposits. They include the three major mountain ranges north of the Los Angeles Basin and the Mojave Desert, 50 miles south of Las Vegas, Nevada.

California Industries and Occupations at Risk

There are several industries and occupations located in California where employees, their families and nearby residents may have been exposed to asbestos, including:

  • 20 major shipyards
  • Marine repair facilities
  • 25 oil refineries
  • 11 power plants and energy generation facilities
  • Mining and smelting operations

The San Diego Naval Base, as well as other naval shipyards and marine repair facilities in operation through the early 1990s, have used asbestos insulation in the ships. Consequently, U. S. veterans who served on sea-going vessels are more likely to develop asbestos diseases, making mesothelioma navy cases more common than cases from other branches of the military.

Asbestos-Related Deaths in California

From the years 1979 until 1999, most of the deaths in the state of California due to asbestos cancer were centered on residents of Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties. They made up over 25% of the total. 20% more were from Contra Costa, Alameda, San Mateo and San Francisco counties in the Bay Area.

Mesothelioma was the cause of over half of the asbestos-related fatalities in the state, but asbestosis is more commonly the cause than mesothelioma. People living in urban areas were more likely to contract mesothelioma, while people in rural areas had a greater chance of getting asbestosis. Those who believe they are at risk for mesothelioma should seek medical attention form California mesothelioma clinics.

California Cities Where Asbestos Exposure Occurred

Provided below is a list of cities in the state of California where asbestos jobsites are known to have been located. If you worked at any of these companies and/or jobsites in California, there is a possibility that you may have been exposed to harmful asbestos which is known to cause mesothelioma. Click on any link to view a complete list of jobsites in that city.

Asbestos Exposure at California Jobsites

If someone you know has ever worked at one of the Jobsites listed below, they may have been exposed to high levels of asbestos. Asbestos exposure at any one of these Jobsites could put them at risk for developing one of the following asbestos related diseases: malignant mesothelioma (a terminal cancer), asbestos related lung cancer, asbestosis or pleural mesothelioma.
