Virginia Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos in Virginia

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

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

  • Virginia factories
  • Powerplants in Virginia
  • Refineries or Chemical Plants in Virginia
