Mesothelioma Lawyers San Diego

San Diego has ranked high over the years in the number of cancer-related deaths due to mesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos exposure.

  • According to federal government statistics, between 230 and 371 mesothelioma-related deaths occurred in San Diego County from 1979 to 2001.
  • San Diego ranked second in California and eighth in the nation in deaths related to asbestos exposure.
  • Exposure in California as a whole accounted for 1,562 cases from 2001 to 2005.

Because San Diego was a hub of activity for the United States Navy, many people were unknowingly exposed to asbestos fibers at ship repair facilities and naval bases.

Not Just Obvious Sources

Some workers, such as insulators, shipyard employees or boilermakers had jobs that obviously involved working with asbestos. However, many victims whom we have represented have not known how or when they were exposed to asbestos fibers until our lawyers completed an extensive investigation into their work history and likely exposure.
