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