Construction Workers & Exposure To Asbestos

Exposure To Asbestos During Construction Work

Advocating For Mesothelioma Victims Nationwide

Prior to the discovery that asbestos was actually quite dangerous, it was widely used in construction materials because of its unique heat resistance, fireproof and insulation properties. Although most companies eliminated the use of asbestos in their construction materials upon learning about its toxic nature, the damage was done and hundreds of thousands of American workers were exposed to this dangerous material.

Mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer that is caused only by the inhalation of asbestos fibers. Meso develops approximately 20-50 years after exposure, making it difficult to trace the exact origin of the exposure. However, at the Throneberry Law Group, we are experienced in tracking down the information needed to represent patients who are newly diagnosed with mesothelioma after inhaling asbestos fibers years ago through remodeling, demolition and construction work.

Our goal is to help you make the connection to high quality medical care necessary to aggressively treat mesothelioma, and provide you with the legal representation you need to obtain funds for expensive medical care. Call us now for a no-cost consultation if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Connecting Remodeling And Construction Jobs With Mesothelioma And Asbestos Diseases

 

We work hard to identify the specific products that people diagnosed with mesothelioma may have came into contact with while working in the remodeling or construction industry. We will use that information to bring suit against companies that supplied, manufactured or used asbestos products and against companies that failed to provide their workers with adequate protection from hazardous asbestos.

Many construction materials were laden with asbestos, including:

  • Wallboard, plaster and joint compounds
  • Brick mortar
  • Roof shingles
  • Attic insulation
  • Plumbing pipes and valves
  • Ceiling tiles and flooring materials
  • Electrical wiring
  • Paints, stains and solvents

Our attorneys represent dozens of different types of clients within the construction industry, including painters, welders, plumbers, carpenters, electricians and roofers. We also represent family members who may have developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos second hand.

Many of the above products were actually not dangerous to people until older buildings, homes and apartment complexes were torn down or renovated and asbestos fibers were released into the surrounding air. This exposed both construction crews working on the site as well as innocent bystanders to high levels of asbestos.
