Maryland Mesothelioma Lawyer

Maryland is a coastal state, and that has made it a popular tourist destination as well as an important commercial center: The Baltimore port is the eighth largest in the nation, and that made it both a transportation hub and home to a major shipbuilding industry. The state is also home to several large military bases. Though all of these contributed to the state’s reputation as an economic powerhouse, they also contributed to a large number of asbestos-related illnesses and deaths that have plagued the state’s residents. Maryland ranks 21st in the nation for mesothelioma and asbestosis deaths with 856 people succumbing to malignant mesothelioma in the years between 1999 and 2013 and another 223 known to have died of asbestosis.

Asbestos is a mineral that was widely used as a component in a wide range of applications right up until the time that it was discovered to be carcinogenic. Valued for both its strength and its insulating capabilities, it was used in shipyards and steel mills, in construction and in the state’s many factories. In addition, Maryland has a significant number of areas where asbestos occurs naturally, and some of those areas had working asbestos mines. All of these industrial job sites and many more put those who worked there and who used their products at substantial risk for asbestos-related diseases.
