If you live or have lived in Mobile Alabama over the past 50 years and have worked in industries such as manufacturing, mining, power plants, oil fineries, or the shipbuilding or retrofitting industries, chances are you have been exposed to asbestos products in the workplace. Since the 1930’s, asbestos manufacturers and companies concealed the dangers of asbestos exposure and kept it from the general public and its workers. The US government waited until the 1970’s to take action and in 1989, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finally banned all new uses of asbestos.
According to the CDC’s most recent study, from 1999-2015, 524 Alabama residents died where malignant mesothelioma was mentioned on the death certificate as the underlying or contributing cause of death. Many of these cases were residents of Mobile and the surrounding areas where exposure to this deadly toxin led to serious health problems such as asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.
