Detroit Mesothelioma Lawyer

Detroit, the largest city in the state of Michigan, is known as the “Motor City.” The city has a population of 713700. Detroit has provided jobs to numerous people in various industries since its establishment in the early 1700s. But, until the EPA implemented asbestos regulations in the 1980s, all those industries used asbestos extensively as an additive in numerous products. For this reason, many former Detroit workers suffered direct exposure to hazardous asbestos fibers. Many of these workers have already developed mesothelioma, asbestosis or other devastating asbestos-related conditions.

If you’ve developed malignant mesothelioma or other injuries caused by direct or secondhand asbestos exposure, you have a chance to get a large amount of money in compensation. A dedicated Detroit mesothelioma lawyer can help you know your legal options and take appropriate action.

Detroit and Occupational Asbestos Exposure

Detroit is a city known for its automobile industry. Though the industry provided jobs to numerous residents, a costly risk was involved in it. Until the 1980s, asbestos was an ingredient in several automobile parts. For this reason, many former automobile industry workers in Detroit developed malignant mesothelioma or other asbestos-related injuries.

In addition to automobile worksites, there were many industries that heavily used asbestos in their products, machinery and buildings due to the excellent heat- and fire-resistant properties of the deadly mineral. Almost all steel mills, paper mills, plants, construction sites, and oil refineries in Detroit relied on asbestos due to its low cost and useful physical properties. Many oil buildings in Detroit, including several hospitals, schools and libraries, still have asbestos-containing materials (ACMs).

The Packard Automotive Plant

Packard Plant is a former automobile manufacturing plant where luxury cars were manufactured by the Packard Motor Car Co and later by Studebaker-Packard Corp. Though it is not active now, officials found asbestos-containing materials littered all through the plant. Though officials attempted to destroy the Packard Plant in the 1990s, it remained after losing a suit. Then it became a dumping ground for many Detroit residents. Thousands of employees had suffered asbestos exposure while the plant was functional. Still it remains a health risk for the public.
