Mesothelioma and the Companies That Brought About Your Illness

You should know that companies that produced products containing asbestos knew as far as back as 1918 of the dangers of asbestos, yet they did nothing to protect their employees or the general public.

You should also know that if you or your loved one has suffered from mesothelioma and you are unsure of how you were exposed to asbestos, our firm will hire investigators to track down who is responsible so that we might hold those companies accountable.

You should also know that the workers that suffer from mesothelioma have been in such wide fields as construction, boilermakers, pipefitters, electricians, oil field workers, factory workers, mechanics, steelworkers, insulators, school employees and mill workers.

Currently, there are funds that have been set up with respect to ABB Lummus, AP Green, Armstrong Contracting, Armstrong World Industries, ARTRA, ASARCO, Babcock & Wilcox, Bondex, Burns and Roe, Celotex, Combustion Engineering, Congoleum,  DII Aberton, DII Harbison Walker, Eagle-Picher, Federal Mogul – Ferodo, Federal Mogul-Flexitallic, Federal Mogul-Turner & Newall, Flintkote, Garlock G-I Holdings, Hercules Chemical, H.K.

Grace. 

Some additional jobs that carry a high risk of exposure to asbestos, particularly applicable to this area, would be mining, automotive shipping and mechanics, automotive manufacturing and maintenance, automotive brake and clutch repair, boilermakers, bricklayers, carpenters, cement workers, people in the construction and demolition industry, dental assistants, dry wallers, electricians, HVAC insulators, iron and steel workers, masonry workers, millwrights, pipefitters, plumbers, refinery workers, roofers, steamfitters, steel mill workers, teachers and welders.
