West Virginia Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos in West Virginia

For decades, West Virginia buildings and products have used asbestos. Because of this, many West 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 West Virginia workers are at risk even if they were exposed to asbestos decades ago. Examples of West Virginia asbestos exposure sites include:

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