As an insulator, you used to work in one of the most dangerous environments regarding asbestos exposure. Insulators worked directly with asbestos-containing products and risked inhaling asbestos fibers when wrapping materials were applied and by doing that the particles of this toxic mineral could have been disturbed, or when worn down and damaged, insulation required removal.
The second process was more dangerous due to the friable state the asbestos was found in, crumbling easier when the insulator touched the aged materials and continued to breathe in the asbestos dust-filled atmosphere.
The people that were unknowingly working in the dangerous environments that insulation projects entailed have fallen numerous times in the hands of diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis, diseases that are diagnosed in later years when their health can't be restored.

The companies that exposed insulators to asbestos are the following:
Diseases contracted after asbestos exposure in insulators
If you are diagnosed with a cancerous disease, you or a family member will deal with our staff over the phone and via emails ONLY, no need to travel at all. If you pass away before or during the process, surviving family members will receive the amount awarded by the claims.
If you receive the diagnosis of a noncancerous disease, we will need to do more testing (X-rays, breathing and blood tests) done at our medical facility in Birmingham, Alabama, where you will be accurately diagnosed.
Similarly to asbestos products manufacturers, the job of insulators involved a great health risk, as they would handle friable asbestos on a regular basis. Until the late 1970s, nearly all types of insulation produced in the U.S. contained asbestos, from block and pipe insulation to attic insulation. To properly install it, insulators had to cut and stretch the product to fit over the equipment which needed to be fireproofed. Asbestos tape or adhesive would subsequently be applied over insulation to ensure its position. Nevertheless, attic insulation implied an even greater danger due to its friable nature.
How can we help insulators who were exposed to asbestos?
If you or a loved one worked as an insulator, let us help by giving you the legal assistance necessary in obtaining the compensation you deserve for being exposed to asbestos fibers. We will file claims with the asbestos trust funds of the companies that put your lives in danger and also with the VA, if you worked as an insulator in the military.
