World Wide Construction Services

Workers exposed to asbestos

As a part of the nonresidential building construction industry, the company is located in San Pedro, California. Starting with only 6 employees and having approximately $1 million in sales at first, the business has significantly grown during the last century, becoming one of the leading companies specializing in nonresidential construction. However, because working in constructions implied asbestos exposure during the last century, World Wide Construction Services was, unfortunately, no exception, as the company also exposed its workers to the dangerous mineral. If you were employed at this company, we advise you to pay close attention to your health, as you are at risk of developing a serious disease. In the regrettable event that you have already received a diagnosis that is related to asbestos exposure, we encourage you to contact our legal team, as you are most likely entitled to financial compensation from your former employer.

Claim Evaluation

World Wide Construction Services employees exposed to asbestos

In a 2018 appraisal of the health and safety performance of construction workers, asbestos inhalation ranked the highest among fatal injuries taking place on construction sites, which speaks volumes about the terrible legacy the mineral has left behind. Because there were so many construction workers handling asbestos products at the same time in a relatively small area, toxic dust would cling to clothes, hair, and tools, also traveling home with the employees and putting their family members at risk.

Masons would mix raw asbestos into compounds to create bricks, stones, or blocks and subsequently cut or demolish the bricks, which clouded the air with asbestos. According to a 2020 study, removing asbestos materials such as bricks can release a concentration of asbestos dust that is over a thousand times higher than average. Furthermore, a 2018 survey ranked masons and bricklayers as the construction trades with the highest risk of deadly injuries and exposure to hazardous substances and materials.

The following are the construction trades whose risk of asbestos exposure was very high during the last century:

When it came to roofers, asbestos shingles were a serious exposure source. These construction employees would often spray asphalt cutbacks that contained asbestos or asphalt emulsions on the finished roofs or tore up old roof flashings in order to install new ones. In 2021, a report found that asbestos fibers could remain trapped in moss while asbestos cement roofs became old. Lastly, tile setters were also at high risk of occupational asbestos exposure, as they would mix and spread asbestos grout and disturb toxic fibers when removing or renovating the flooring of a building. Asbestos vinyl flooring contains up to 25% chrysotile asbestos.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the families of World Wide Construction Services workers

During the last century, secondary exposure was very common among the families of workers who had to handle the mineral on the job. Because they would often come back home covered in toxic dust, their wives and children would unavoidably inhale asbestos upon greeting the workers and also when laundering their garments. Over the years, asbestos fibers would accumulate in the bodies of family members, especially in their lungs, where they would gradually cause inflammation and tissue scarring. Unlucky family members came to struggle with lung cancer or mesothelioma if the asbestos fibers in their lungs triggered the development of one of these diseases.
