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