Asbestos exposure has prompted many illnesses in Minnesota

If you were to be involved in an accident at work or in a car while traveling on a Minnesota highway, you might suffer injuries with immediately apparent symptoms. Such injuries may warrant a trip to the hospital and extended time at home in the following weeks (or months) to recover. What if you are injured by asbestos exposure, however? Your initial contact with the item containing this dangerous substance might have taken place years ago, though you may have only recently become aware of your symptoms.

That's understandable, seeing as many illnesses related to exposure to asbestos are slow developing conditions. However, if you have worked in an area that places you at high risk -- such as on the railroad, in construction, at a shipyard or in an old building of some sort -- you may want to seek medical examination to determine if your poor health condition could, in fact, be related to asbestos. In work situations, employers are obligated to inform their workers of any asbestos-related hazards on the job.

Employers must also provide appropriate training and any available equipment that can help keep workers as safe as possible. In the past four decades, litigation evidence has been compiled that includes information on companies throughout the state and surrounding regions that manufacture, supply or install products containing asbestos. Many of these products exist in schools, factories and libraries and other industries, perhaps one or more locations that you have frequented or worked in at some point in your life.

Mesothelioma and asbestosis are two of the most frequently reported illnesses related to asbestos exposure in Minnesota and throughout the country. At present, both of these diseases are incurable. Sieben Polk, P.A., has successfully represented many asbestos injury victims and their families in seeking recovery for losses associated with incidents of exposure. We are fully prepared to help you investigate and document facts that can then be used to aggressively pursue legal accountability against any and all parties deemed responsible for your injury.
