For many residents of Louisiana who have lived in the state for a substantial period of time, there is a good possibility that they have been exposed to the use of asbestos in the workplace. Unfortunately, frequent or prolonged exposure to asbestos can result in a number of serious health conditions, including mesothelioma, as well as other associated cancers and diseases. Not only can it help to understand the nature of asbestos exposure in Louisiana for victims, but it can also help to obtain the assistance of an experienced attorney.The Rate of Asbestos Exposure in Louisiana
Between the years of 1999 to 2015, 769 Louisiana residents died as a result of mesothelioma. As a result, Louisiana has an above-average rate of mesothelioma deaths resulting in approximately 10 individuals out of a million annually dying from the condition. Despite these high rates, there are no known natural asbestos deposits in the area.Louisiana Locations Where Asbestos Exposure Occurred
There are a number of industries in Louisiana where workers were exposed to asbestos, which includes the following:
The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality is tasked with administering asbestos regulations as well as making certain that federal regulations are followed. Rules throughout the state require notification before any work is performed with asbestos, including renovations. This work in Louisiana can only be performed by trained and professionals.
It is also important to understand that the victims of asbestos exposure in Louisiana only have one year in which to initiate a lawsuit. If you were exposed to asbestos and developed an associated condition, it is imperative that you act quickly in pursuing compensation.Speak with an Experienced Mesothelioma Attorney
