How To Determine A Timeline For Your Asbestos Exposure

Identifying the Cause of Asbestos Exposure

In diagnosing mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases, doctors consider your work history and other potential points of exposure. They will consider the following questions:

  • Were you exposed to asbestos at work? Millions of Americans working at chemical plants, oil refineries, shipyards and other job sites were exposed to asbestos due to the negligence of their employers.
  • Were you exposed to asbestos in the Navy? If you served in the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Marines or Merchant Marines, you may have been exposed to asbestos while serving on a seafaring vessel.
  • Were you exposed to asbestos at home? Many consumer goods, including electrical products, were constructed with asbestos. Also, people who worked around asbestos would come home with particles on their clothing, exposing other people in the home to the danger of exposure.
