Auto Mechanics, Asbestos Exposure And Mesothelioma

Lying on his back on a coaster, a shower of debris falls on the mechanic’s face and hair as he pulls the old brake lining loose. Then, as he grinds away at the brake drum, a thick dust fills the hot airspace. Rolling out from under the car, he stands and pats a cloud of fine particles from his work shirt.

Former auto mechanics in general and brake mechanics in particular are at significant risk for mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer because brake components and other automotive repair products were manufactured for decades with asbestos.

If a family member diagnosed with asbestos disease ever worked as a car mechanic or fixed his own brakes, the law firm of The Gori Law Firm can help make the connection. We have recovered compensation in thousands of asbestos cases nationwide.

Experienced Lawyers Who Can Help

Until quite recently, asbestos was still used in the manufacture of brake shoes and other automotive components. Although the dangers were well established, asbestos was both economical and effective for dissipating the friction from braking.

While manufacturers have finally transitioned to nonasbestos materials, there are still potentially hundreds or thousands of mechanics who will develop asbestos disease: (A) Mechanics who were exposed 20 to 50 years ago are just now experiencing symptoms of cancer and (B) thousands of mechanics servicing old asbestos-containing brakes could still be exposed.

Asbestos is the only cause of mesothelioma, asbestosis and certain types of lung cancer. In the past, it was used industrywide in:

  • Disc brake pads
  • Drum brake linings
  • Clutch facings
  • Brake blocks
  • Transmissions
  • Gaskets
  • Other friction materials and parts

Our attorneys can mount claims against manufacturers of asbestos-containing brake components, including Bendix, Abex, Carlisle, Maremont, Grizzly, Owens Corning, Johns-Manville, Bosch, Raybestos, RPM and others. We also investigate potential lawsuits against auto repair and brake shop chains that employed brake mechanics and wholesalers and retailers of automotive parts.

NOTE: If your spouse or parent performed brake work on his own cars, but never worked as a mechanic, you may still have grounds for a claim.
