Michigan Industries with Exposure to Asbestos Products

Understanding the Risks: Michigan Industries with Asbestos Exposure

Michigan, known for its industrial prowess, has a history deeply intertwined with industries that have exposed workers to asbestos. Understanding these industries is crucial for raising awareness and ensuring that those affected receive the legal assistance they need.

Key Michigan Industries at Risk

1. Automotive Industry

Michigan, home to the Big Three automakers, has a significant history in the automotive industry. Many auto parts, including brake pads, clutches, and gaskets, historically contained asbestos due to its heat-resistant properties. Workers in manufacturing plants and repair shops were often exposed to asbestos fibers, increasing their risk of developing lung cancer and mesothelioma.

2. Construction Industry

The construction boom in Michigan throughout the 20th century saw extensive use of asbestos in building materials. Insulation, roofing shingles, cement, and floor tiles often contained asbestos. Construction workers, electricians, and plumbers who worked in these environments were at high risk of inhaling asbestos fibers.

3. Shipbuilding and Maritime Industry

With access to the Great Lakes, Michigan’s shipbuilding industry utilized asbestos for its fireproofing capabilities. Shipyard workers, including those involved in building and repairing ships, faced significant asbestos exposure. The confined spaces and lack of ventilation in ships exacerbated the risk, leading to long-term health issues.

4. Steel Mills and Foundries

Michigan’s steel mills and foundries used asbestos for its durability and heat resistance in machinery and protective gear. Workers in these industries handled asbestos-containing materials daily, leading to prolonged exposure and an elevated risk of developing asbestos-related diseases.

5. Chemical Plants

Asbestos was commonly used in chemical plants for its resistance to heat and chemicals. Workers in these plants, particularly those involved in maintenance and repair, were exposed to asbestos insulation and other asbestos-containing materials.

Legal Support for Asbestos Exposure Victims

If you or a loved one has worked in any of these Michigan industries and developed lung cancer or mesothelioma, it is crucial to seek legal assistance. A specialized lung cancer and mesothelioma lawyer can help you navigate the complexities of asbestos litigation, ensuring you receive the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, and suffering.

Asbestos & Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Looking for a mesothelioma lawyer? Contact an attorney right now to discuss your mesothelioma or asbestos-related legal claim.

Despite decades of knowing asbestos exposure dangers, companies withheld, downplayed, and ignored the issue. Not until a series of lawsuits in the early 1970s were companies forced to admit their awareness and responsibility. Those first mesothelioma lawsuits paved the way for modern asbestos litigation. It’s a journey toward compensating those injured by asbestos that the Goldberg, Persky & White law firm has been a part of since the beginning.

Finding a Mesothelioma Lawyer to handle your lawsuit

Finding an asbestos law firm with the experience and knowledge to represent you can be challenging. Much like finding mesothelioma medical specialists, it’s important that you find a law firm experienced specifically in asbestos litigation.

We have been involved in asbestos lawsuits since the 1970s, when cases were first coming to trial. Because of GPW’s involvement in asbestos litigation from the beginning, we have a clear understanding of what is required to succeed in asbestos and mesothelioma lawsuits.


As pioneers in asbestos litigation, many of the documents and depositions used around the country by all asbestos lawyers were first obtained by us. Built over three decades of researching and trying cases, our large arsenal of corporate documents, depositions, and medical articles allow our asbestos attorneys to hit the ground running once we accept your case.


The asbestos attorneys at GPW have represented thousands of mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestos disease victims.
