Michigan Mesothelioma Attorney Michigan has been the center of manufacturing automobiles and their assembly from the beginning. Asbestos was largely used in the automotive industry for brake pads, exhaust systems, gaskets and many other products before the health hazards of asbestos came into the picture. Workers involved in auto parts manufacturing and assembling often inhaled the fine asbestos fibers. Michigan also has numerous chemical plants, power plants and refineries. Each of these industries was dependent on asbestos as a fire-retardant and heat shield, exposing workers to the danger of developing mesothelioma within a year. Michigan has set a three-year statute of limitations for a mesothelioma victim to file a lawsuit after the cause of action accrues. The cause of action increases on the date the plaintiff knew or should have known of the asbestos-related disease. Thus we strongly request if anyone is diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease or an heir, if that person is now no more, to contact a mesothelioma attorney as immediately to determine the appropriateness of an asbestos-related lawsuit.

Laborers in the auto industry of yesteryear were exposed to asbestos. For decades automobile manufacturers widely used asbestos to minimize the possibility of automobile fires. Even they admit that asbestos was used in clutches, firewalls brakes and several other parts, but they denied its toxicity. In fact, many automobile manufacturers went to court to defend the use of this hazardous mineral. Other industries of Michigan exposing workers to asbestos constitute refineries, power plants and chemical plants. Asbestos was used in industrial plants mainly because of its fire and heat- resistant properties and also because of its high resistance to chemical degradation. Employees at chemical plants are likely to come in contact with asbestos on work surfaces, wrapped around pipes, or even in their protective gear, including face masks and gloves. Asbestos exposure was certainly unavoidable in power plants built prior to 1980, mainly those powered by fossil fuels. It was used to cover boilers, pipes, generators and other machinery.
