New Jersey Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos in New Jersey

For decades, New Jersey buildings and products have used asbestos. Because of this, many New Jersey residents have been exposed to asbestos and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma cancer.

The symptoms of mesothelioma often take decades to appear, so New Jersey workers are at risk even if they were exposed to asbestos decades ago. Examples of New Jersey asbestos exposure sites include:

  • New Jersey factories
  • Powerplants in New Jersey
  • Refineries or Chemical Plants in New Jersey
