Delaware is home to a number of corporate and industrial headquarters due to its very low rates for corporate taxation and as such it is also a State in which asbestos related cases are common. One of the markedly different things about asbestos exposure claims in this State is the fact that more than three quarters of those brought to court are from individuals out of State. Delaware’s unique legal system allows for this practice where many other States do not. This makes the statistics for “asbestos related exposure” seem very inflated. The actual locations of potential exposures are fairly low in Delaware comparably; however there are a few danger zones citizens should take note of most of which stem from chemical pollution and Air Force bases.

The most notable of these “polluters” is DuPont Chemical Company whose track record is nothing short of ghastly in terms of environmental friendliness. The Dover U.S. Air Force Base has also been in connection with risky levels of asbestos reported by veterans and service members whom had worked on site.

Below is a comprehensive list of other entities, operating in Delaware, that have had known cases of Pleural Mesothelioma, Peritoneal Mesothelioma, Pericardial Mesothelioma, or Testicular Mesothelioma. Workers who were employed at any of these companies may have been subjected to life threatening levels of Asbestos.
