Exposed to asbestos at their workplace

For remodelers, the risk of asbestos exposure is always present as they have to deal with structures built before the 1980s with materials that were made with this toxic mineral.

Claim Evaluation

Exposure hazards could stem easily from renovation activities as the asbestos contained in the deteriorated materials get disturbed fairly easily. This happens when worn out shingles get replaced, paint is scraped off the walls, sawing wallboard or fiberboard, re-tilling floors, and ceilings or chipping off mastic and caulk. By doing this, asbestos fibers become airborne and contaminate the environment, putting the workers in danger of inhaling them.

Interacting with deteriorated or damaged materials and building products, remodelers risk asbestos exposure on a constant basis. This leads to the development of diseases like mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer, diseases with very limited options of treatment.
