Asbestos Exposure in New Jersey

TextileMillMany of New Jersey’s prominent industries, including chemical development, textile manufacturing, shipping and railroad development exposed workers to large quantities of toxic asbestos. Several power plants and manufacturing plants across the state employed over 400,000 workers that were placed at risk.

Unfortunately, many of the families of these workers 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.

Filing an asbestos claim if you live in New Jersey
