Most often, exposure occurs in the workplace. Exposure can also occur through secondary exposure to family members of workers that may have brought asbestos into the home on their clothing from their workplace. In most cases, workers and their families were exposed unknowingly to the dangers of asbestos.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, holding the party responsible with for your illness can help take care of your family. Often individuals who were exposed to asbestos are unaware until a mesothelioma diagnosis.
It is important to know that mesothelioma is not the only illness caused by asbestos exposure. While Pleural mesothelioma is the most common illness after asbestos exposure, asbestosis and a handful of other health complications can be caused by asbestos exposure.
An Arkansas mesothelioma attorney may be able to help you and your family by holding the parties responsible for their role in your asbestos exposure and resulting mesothelioma and health complications.

Arkansas Asbestos Lawyers helping lung cancer victims
Most individuals who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma are older than 55 years old due to long incubation periods. Sometimes people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos 20 to 40 years before being diagnosed. Our Arkansas asbestos attorneys help victims of exposure to asbestos.
Experts predict that the United States will see the highest numbers of mesothelioma diagnoses between 2015 and 2020 but Arkansas may be behind the national predictions. While regulations to limit asbestos exposure went into effect in the 1980s, Arkansas workers may have been exposed to asbestos after that point due to lagging regulations.
In Arkansas, we have a high number of oil, power plant and railway jobs, all industries where exposure to asbestos was common until higher regulations were put in place. While other states implemented asbestos regulations much earlier to protect workers, many Arkansans were exposed to asbestos much later than other states’ workers.
Arkansas’ Pollution Control and Ecology Commission Regulation 21 that places restrictions on how asbestos can be used wasn’t established until May 30, 1997. This means that many more Arkansans may be diagnosed with mesothelioma in the coming years.
