Remodelers

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.

How can we help remodelers who were exposed to asbestos?

Remodelers continue to be subjected to asbestos exposure to this very day as the majority of buildings and structures built before the 1980’s still contain materials made with asbestos. The exposure led to the development of illnesses like asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma, illnesses that show symptoms after long periods of incubation, once the body is already weakened by age.

Getting screened for the presence of asbestos fibers is of utmost importance for the people that have worked as remodelers. Contact us so we can make sure you get the correct diagnosis and find out the available options for treatment.

Regarding the reparations you deserve for being unknowingly exposed to the dangers of asbestos, our experienced team of lawyers will gather all the information required to file claims with the asbestos trust funds of the companies responsible.
