Connecticut Mesothelioma and Asbestos Exposure


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.

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.

Asbestos and Submarines in Connecticut

The more common asbestos jobsites in Connecticut include Electric Boat Co, the CT Submarine Base, and New London Submarine Base where shipyard workers were the largest population affected by asbestos exposure.

Mesothelioma Treatment in Connecticut

Connecticut is home to some of the leading physicians who specialize in treating mesothelioma. In fact, the Yale Comprehensive Cancer Center features some of the world's top experts in thoracic and cardiothoracic oncology.

Connecticut Asbestos Laws

The state of Connecticut does not have any language in its Civil Law governing the amount damages payable to victims of asbestos exposure, but Connecticut, like most states, has established timelines for processing a claim against an asbestos manufacturer. Those seeking more information about how to obtain legal compensation for Connecticut asbestos injuries should fill out this brief form on this page.
