Mesothelioma Stats & Asbestos Exposure in Illinois

 

Illinois has had a lot of legal cases regarding asbestos related disease however, this is mostly due to very favorable decisions imposed by courtrooms for those bringing suit. In terms of actual exposure to asbestos Illinois ranks on the higher side of known diagnoses in the country. Most of these cases are attributed to oil refineries, power plants, and naval bases. Asbestos was also used (as in most states) as material in insulation for several of the State’s older buildings and there has even been reported use of it in the manufacturing process for water pipes.
