Those who live in Hawaii may have received a mesothelioma diagnosis if they worked in certain areas before the 1980s.

Having a skilled Aiea mesothelioma lawyer from Frost Law Firm, PC at your side will help you find out where your asbestos exposure occurred. We will fight for you to receive maximum compensation.
Where Could Asbestos Exposure Have Occurred in Aiea?
Aiea, Oahu has a population of about 9,338 people. Compared to other areas in Hawaii, it’s one of the smaller populations. However, Aiea had two places where residents and workers could have been exposed to asbestos:
- California and Hawaiian Sugar Company
- Honolulu Plantation Company
Before the dangers of asbestos were well-known, asbestos was used heavily in infrastructure and manufacturing. Asbestos-containing materials appeared in pipes, ships, ceiling and floor tiles, and many more items. Its heat resistance and resilience made it a popular choice for building, but the effects of using these materials didn’t present until many years later as an aggressive form of cancer without a cure.
Those who worked for these companies may have been exposed to asbestos. While there isn’t a safe amount to be exposed to, being exposed over a longer period of time increases the chances of having an asbestos-related disease. One of those could be developing mesothelioma. Family members of those who worked for these companies could have been harmed as well, as asbestos fibers can rest on a person’s clothes. When those fibers are disturbed and in the air, anyone can inhale them.
Aiea residents can receive fair compensation for this debilitating disease. Our firm is ready to help.
