For decades, people were exposed to excessive levels of asbestos around the United States at thousands of job sites, on military ships, in schools and in many other areas. As a result, these people are at a higher risk of developing mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.
People living near these sites were also exposed to the asbestos fibers that were released into the air. And family members were exposed to asbestos from the fibers brought home in others' clothing.
Trust funds have been set up to pay compensation to people who have developed mesothelioma or other asbestos-related diseases. If you or a loved one has been exposed to asbestos and have mesothelioma, you may be eligible to file a mesothelioma claim and receive compensation.
The pages below contain information on asbestos exposure sites in each state as well as local doctor and cancer treatment center information, local mesothelioma facts, mesothelioma resources and information on how to file a claim.
