Electricians And Asbestos Exposure

Advice About Mesothelioma And Asbestos Lung Disease

Former electricians and electrical engineers are high-risk candidates for asbestos disease from exposure to asbestos on the job. The toxic substance was once commonly contained not only in the wiring itself, but in materials in the walls and ceilings and tight spaces where electricians work. And while asbestos has been discontinued in wiring and construction materials, electrical trade workers are still at risk in renovations of older structures.

Mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer have very long latency periods — the typical person who is diagnosed today was first exposed to asbestos 20 to 50 years ago.

If you or a family member is battling asbestos disease, The Gori Law Firm is here to help. Our attorneys have recovered compensation for thousands of clients in asbestos litigation in Illinois and throughout the United States.

Products Containing Asbestos

For much of the 20th century, asbestos was routinely used in electrical wiring for its insulation and fireproofing qualities. Electricians also unknowingly encountered asbestos when they cut through walls or handled ceiling tiles. Dozens of known asbestos-containing products could have exposed electrical trade workers:

  • Wiring insulation and electrical cloth tape
  • Electrical conduit and electrical panels
  • Wallboard, plaster and spackle
  • Acoustic ceiling tiles
  • Fireproof coatings

We have advocated for many electricians, electrician apprentices, utility linemen, electrical engineers and other workers who are now suffering from painful, debilitating and terminal asbestos diseases. Our role is to help clients identify past employers who knowingly or negligently put them in harm’s way and manufacturers of electrical products and construction materials that contained deadly asbestos.
