Asbestos in Connecticut
For decades, Connecticut buildings and products have used asbestos. Because of this, many Connecticut residents have been exposed to asbestos and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma cancer.
The symptoms of mesothelioma often take decades to appear, so Connecticut workers are at risk even if they were exposed to asbestos decades ago. Examples of Connecticut asbestos exposure sites include:
- Connecticut factories
- Powerplants in Connecticut
- Refineries or Chemical Plants in Connecticut
