Asbestos Exposure in Detroit, MI

The city of Detroit, with an estimated population of 713,700, is the largest city in Michigan and serves as the seat of Wayne County. Founded in 1701 and incorporated in 1806, Detroit is one of the oldest settlements in the Midwest. Situated along the Detroit River, Detroit is a major port city, and is also recognized as the world's traditional automotive center and a significant source of popular music legacies, earning it the nicknames, “the Motor City” and “Motown”. Detroit is most notably home to America's 'Big Three' automobile companies: General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler. Other major industries include advertising, law, finance, chemicals, casino gaming, and computer software. Medical research centers and service providers such as the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, Detroit Medical Center and Henry Ford Hospital are major employers in the city.

Automobile manufacturing continues to be a primary force in the Detroit economy. In the late 20th century, however, dependence on the auto industry decreased—the city lost 39 percent of its manufacturing jobs in the 1980s—while the services sector increased. The Detroit automakers and local manufacturing have made significant restructurings in response to market competition. For 2010, the domestic automakers reported significant profits indicating the beginning of rebound along with an economic recovery for the Detroit area.

Detroit’s history of manufacturing, particularly within the automobile industry, makes asbestos exposure an ongoing concern for workers and loved ones. Those exposed to asbestos may be at risk for a type of asbestos cancer, such as mesothelioma. If you were exposed to asbestos in Detroit, Michigan, you may benefit from seeking the advice of an asbestos attorney.
