Welders And Ironworkers: Asbestos Exposure And Legal Help

Not so long ago, the very products that were meant to protect welders actually posed a severe risk to their long-term health. Welding blankets, aprons and gloves often were made with asbestos because the material protected workers from the sparks and heat.

Retirees who performed welding work in the 1960s, ’70s and early ’80s are at substantially higher risk of developing mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer because of prolonged or repeated exposure to asbestos from various sources on the job.

The attorneys of The Gori Law Firm have recovered compensation for thousands of clients in asbestos litigation in Illinois and throughout the United States. We invite you to contact us if a family member has been diagnosed with asbestos disease.

Lawyers For Asbestos And Mesothelioma Cases

Welders, ironworkers, sheet metal workers, machinists and mechanics, including those in the shipbuilding industries, potentially faced asbestos in many forms:

  • Welding rods often contained asbestos because it is an excellent insulator against heat and electricity.
  • Welding blankets, used to shield the welder from hot metal sparks and the heat, were often woven with asbestos fibers. If the blanket became worn or torn, the asbestos would become airborne and inhaled by all in the vicinity.
  • Welding gloves were commonly infused with asbestos, presenting the same dangers.
  • Welders often used grinders to smooth the welded joint, creating asbestos dust that became airborne or settled on clothing.
  • Welders commonly disturbed asbestos coatings in the process of bonding one surface to another or in welds involving pumps and valves that contained asbestos packing.

We have represented welders exposed in civilian industrial jobs as well as Navy veterans and nonmilitary personnel who performed welding work in shipyards. We have also represented family members of welders and ironworkers exposed to asbestos from workers’ dusty clothing. Our attorneys are skilled at identifying all job sites or military duty stations where our clients would have been most heavily exposed to asbestos.
