Asbestos Exposure in Maryland

Shipyard-MarlyandMaryland’s location along the Atlantic Ocean is home to several ship yards and construction companies. Anyone who worked in one of these shipyards is at a high risk of exposure.

Many Maryland residents worked for power plants, chemical plants, and construction companies performing labor jobs that may have put them at high risk for exposure to asbestos. People who worked in large plants are at a high risk of mesothelioma and lung caner because of the asbestos used in various equipment.

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.
