Maintenance workers, asbestos exposure and your legal rights

| Feb 16, 2018 | Workplace Illness |

As a maintenance worker, you know how important it is to tackle any task that comes your way. In this field, you soon realize that no two days are the same.

Unfortunately, there is always a chance that a maintenance worker could breathe in asbestos fibers, as these are often found in ceilings, wiring, piping and other spaces in which these professionals spend a good portion of time.

Although the use of asbestos was phased out almost entirely by the early 1980s, there’s something to remember: This material still remains in many buildings throughout the country.

So, as a maintenance worker, there’s always a possibility of being exposed to asbestos.

At our law firm, we have many years of experience helping people who have developed mesothelioma as the result of asbestos. We’ve come to find that this material is often included in ceiling tiles, fireproof coatings, electrical wiring, furnace pipes, wallboard, window putty and floor coverings.

If you’re diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may begin to wonder if you’ll be able to track your exposure to asbestos. While this sounds like a difficult task (and it can be), we have the knowledge and experience necessary to provide the assistance you require.

Depending on your current health situation and findings in your past, you may be in position to seek compensation. For example, your employer may have been aware of asbestos in the building; however, they didn’t take any steps in getting rid of the dangerous material.

With asbestos exposure, it’s not likely that you’ll face any immediate health concerns. Instead, it can be many years before you realize something is wrong.
