Asbestos FAQs

Where is asbestos commonly found?

Asbestos was commonly used in buildings and vehicles in the 20th century. As the United States entered the Second World War, many shipbuilders, construction workers, and American service members were exposed to asbestos as a part of their jobs. Asbestos was commonly used in pipes, boilers, and tiling for several decades after the war. Many Wisconsinites were exposed during this period, and may have exposed their family members to this dangerous material through fibers on their clothing and belongings.

If you’ve developed mesothelioma, asbestosis, or another serious health condition because of asbestos exposure, you may be eligible to take legal action available against the party responsible for your asbestos exposure. These cases can be difficult for an individual or family to pursue without strong legal representation to back them up.

Fibers that become lodged in the lining of the lungs and other organs can result in asbestosis. In the most serious cases, a person can develop mesothelioma, a life-threatening cancer, because of asbestos exposure.
