The tile setters risked exposure to asbestos by handling asbestos products and materials directly or being on a construction site where asbestos dust was produced by other workers in their proximity. Every time the worker cut the tiles, prepared the walls by sanding them or removing deteriorated materials, he risked inhaling the dangerous particles released from the asbestos dust.
Diseases contracted after asbestos exposure in tile setters
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.
The majority of the products that were handled by tile setters on a regular basis before the 1980s contained asbestos including vinyl sheet, asphalt floor tiles, adhesives, mastic, and acoustical panels. Asbestos fibers were released into the air by drilling, cutting, sawing and sanding these products, as well as by vacuuming and sweeping. Old building materials entailed a significantly higher danger since fibers were more likely to come off from brittle products.
How can we help tile setters who were exposed to asbestos?
The sooner you get in contact with us, the sooner you can get examined, because an early diagnosis means a higher chance of getting treated.
For more than 20 years we helped people in your line of business to get compensated for being exposed to asbestos. By filing claims with the asbestos trust funds of the companies that put you and your family in harm’s way, we will get you the reparations you deserve. If you are a veteran who was exposed to asbestos during your service in the U.S. Military, our legal team will also file a claim with the VA so that you can benefit from the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.
