Redding Asbestos Attorney

Redding is the Sacramento Valley’s fourth-largest city, with a population exceeding 90,000 residents. As the county seat of Shasta County, this California city has grown into a thriving area built up by significant economic growth based on early 20th century copper and iron mining.

In the decades since, Redding has continued to spur growth through a number of industrial developments and construction efforts. Sadly, too many of these efforts relied on asbestos-containing materials, exposing Redding residents to the dangers of asbestos.

Why Is Asbestos Exposure Harmful?

Asbestos exposure causes mesothelioma, asbestosis and asbestos-related lung cancer. All of these diseases can be fatal and often are. Workers who are employed at industrial and construction jobsites are most at risk of asbestos exposure.

The reason for this is that asbestos was widely used during the 20th century for building projects because of the durable nature of asbestos. However, asbestos becomes toxic to humans when inhaled or swallowed. Sadly, this happens all too easily when asbestos-containing materials are disturbed and release microscopic fibers into the air at an asbestos jobsite.

Research shows that asbestos may never leave the body was it is inhaled or ingested, and it is at this point that asbestos may end up mutating the body’s internal cavity cells into cancerous mesothelioma cells.

However, it takes decades in most cases for this process to complete. Medical professionals have a difficult time diagnosing mesothelioma as a result, which contributes to the deadliness of the disease.

California’s Department of Public Health issued a report detailing that an estimated 350 California workers are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year. The Department goes on to estimate that 200 of those workers will eventually lose their fight against mesothelioma.
