Sheet metal workers

Exposed to asbestos at their workplace

People working with sheet metal were required to spend the majority of their time on construction sites infested with asbestos due to its heavy use in manufacturing construction materials.

Metal sheets needed to be installed by the workers and, in order to do that, they had to drill into asbestos-containing cement releasing millions of microscopic particles into the atmosphere. The structures, on which metal sheets were applied to, contained building materials contaminated with this toxic mineral as it was heavily used for its low costs and heat-resistant properties.

The exposure didn’t stop at the working site as asbestos dust was brought home on the clothes of the workers putting their families at risk of developing asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and other respiratory illnesses as well.

How can we help sheet metal workers who were exposed to asbestos?

There was an extremely high risk of asbestos exposure for the people working in the sheet metal industry as materials contaminated with this mineral were all around the construction sites these workers frequented. For many of these people, this led to their health being affected by diseases like mesothelioma, asbestosis and other types of cancer.

If you contact us we can help you get screened in the fastest time possible in order for you to receive the proper diagnosis and treatment. Regarding the reparations you deserve, we will file claims with the trust funds of the companies that put you and your family in harm’s way. Furthermore, if you are a veteran who was exposed to asbestos as a sheet metal worker in the U.S. Military, we will also seek financial compensation from the VA.
