WHO IS AT RISK?
Some jobs put workers at a higher risk of contracting mesothelioma than others. It can take more than 20 years for symptoms of mesothelioma to develop, which means that many diagnoses occur years, even decades after the initial exposure.
In Wisconsin, workers at these sites were and are at risk:
- Military bases
- Shipbuilders sites
- Construction sites
- Automotive plants
- Power companies and other energy sector sites
In fact, there are hundreds, if not thousands of sites throughout the state that have been identified as ‘known asbestos exposure sites’, in cities such as:
- Beaver Dam
- Eau Claire
- Fond Du Lac
- Fort Atkinson
- Green Bay
- La Crosse
- New London
- Oak Creek
- Oconto Falls
- Port Edwards
- Port Washington
Family members of these workers are also at risk because asbestos fibers can cling to clothing and be brought into the home where the fibers become airborne and are inhaled by family members.
MESOTHELIOMA CLAIMS & ACCOUNTABILITY
In the mid-1970s, documents were uncovered exposing the fact that many companies were aware of the dangers associated with asbestos but hid the truth from the public, putting corporate profits ahead of public safety. Today, an estimated $30 billion dollars in trust money has been set aside to help mesothelioma victims.
