Cement masons may seek compensation for an asbestos illness. Please complete the form below for a free case review.
Many cement masons experienced direct contact with asbestos because the materials they used in their jobs were made with the deadly mineral.
A cement mason may help to prepare a surface to be poured with concrete, then help pour and level the surface. The cement mason smooths and finishes surfaces of poured concrete floors, walls and sidewalks.
Cement masons use hand tools such as floats, trowels, and screeds. Harmful exposures during that work include cement dust, silica, asphalt, and asbestos.
Plasterers and cement masons still have elevated risks for certain diseases, especially lung and stomach cancer. Therefore, union members currently living should be screened for asbestos-related diseases and educated about the future risks for these diseases.
Many cement masons have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
