Asbestos Exposure in Delaware

DuPont_Chestnut_DelawareThere are several sites across Delaware in which asbestos use was common. Delaware is home to DuPont Chemical, which has been acknowledged to be among the worst corporate pollutants in the world, putting thousands of workers at risk for mesothelioma and lung cancer due to asbestos in their plant.

Chemical plants across the state used asbestos in factory boiler rooms, workspaces and production lines before it was finally regulated in the 1970’s due to known health risks. Workers at these sites (listed below) are at greater risk of developing mesothelioma and lung cancer.  Unfortunately, many of the families of workers at the sites listed below also have an increased risk of developing cancer because of the asbestos fibers that were carried home on the body and clothing of those workers.

Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Delaware
