Limbach Construction

Workers exposed to asbestos

Providing mechanical systems solutions and building infrastructure services with a focus on the design, maintenance, and installation of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, Limbach Construction was founded in 1901 by a family with the same name. Currently, the company operates ten strategic business units across the country, in states such as Michigan, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey. In 2020, Limbach Holdings, Inc. – the name under which the business is active today – had over $568 million in revenue. Nevertheless, during the last century, the company exposed workers to asbestos, which places numerous former construction workers at high risk of developing terrible diseases now. If you were employed at Limbach Construction between the 1920s and the 1980s and have a disease related to asbestos exposure, we advise you to reach out to our legal team, as you are most likely entitled to compensation.

Claim Evaluation

Limbach Construction employees exposed to asbestos

The company has experts in a wide range of construction services, from mechanical to fire protection, which means that it exposed a lot of former workers to asbestos during the last century. Mechanics who were in charge of heating, air conditioning, and ventilation systems would come in contact with asbestos by cutting, sanding, breaking, and disturbing old ductwork, as these processes inevitably released toxic particles into the atmosphere. Subsequently, workers inhaled and ingested some of these asbestos fibers. Furthermore, when these employees would open compartments and panels to perform these tasks, they could easily disturb the asbestos dust that had settled in that space.

These are some of the occupational groups Limbach Construction exposed to asbestos during the heyday of the mineral, directly or indirectly:

When it comes to boiler workers, they were one of the occupations most frequently exposed to asbestos and now carry the highest risk for developing a disease as a consequence of asbestos inhalation or ingestion. The danger in the case of boiler workers came from regular operation and attendance of the machinery. To understand how ardent the issue of boiler workers and asbestos exposure is, let this fact sink in: between 1986 and 1995, medical professionals diagnosed nearly 100 cases of mesothelioma in boiler workers in Australia. Mesothelioma is the rarest malignant disease caused by asbestos exposure.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Limbach Construction workers

If you lived in the same house as a Limbach Construction worker during the last century, you were most likely a victim of secondary asbestos exposure. However, this does not mean that you will develop a disease but should make you cautious about your health. Secondary asbestos exposure would occur among the family members of asbestos workers because these employees would not change their clothes at the end of the day and, thereby, would bring asbestos dust into the house. When laundering their work clothes or hugging the Limbach Construction worker, their family members would inhale some of the asbestos fibers on their clothes.
