Navigating Occupational Exposure

Asbestos-related diseases primarily affect individuals exposed to concentrated asbestos levels in industrial settings over prolonged periods. High-risk occupations include asbestos mining, manufacturing (insulation, piping, ceiling/flooring materials), shipbuilding, welding, plumbing, pipe fitting, steam fitting, railroads, building demolition, and construction. Occupational exposure was significantly reduced after federal and state governments implemented rigorous asbestos regulations in the 1970s. However, workers are still navigating asbestos-related compensation claims, and Roven Camp’s attorneys provide top-notch legal support in Houston.

Common Asbestos Cases in Texas

Individuals who have suffered asbestos-related diseases due to exposure in various occupational settings make up the majority of asbestos cases in Texas. Some prevalent health concerns resulting from prolonged asbestos exposure include:

  • Mesothelioma: a rare and aggressive cancer that primarily affects the thin lining of the lungs, chest, abdomen, or heart, often linked to asbestos exposure
  • Lung cancer: a malignant tumor that originates in the lungs, frequently associated with smoking but also linked to exposure to carcinogens like asbestos
  • Asbestosis: a chronic lung disease caused by prolonged inhalation of asbestos fibers, leading to scarring of the lung tissue and impaired respiratory function

Asbestos cases often target responsible parties such as employers, product manufacturers, or property owners; they can even cover family members who have suffered secondary exposure. Roven Camp can help you seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and emotional distress.

What Are the Legal Considerations for Asbestos Cases in Texas?

Texas allows employers to opt out of the traditional workers' compensation system. In cases where employers are non-subscribers to workers' compensation, injured workers have the right to pursue legal action directly against their employers.

Because the state of Texas imposes a statute of limitations on filing asbestos claims, victims must initiate legal proceedings within a specified time frame from the date of diagnosis or discovery of asbestos-related illness.
