Crane operators were exposed to asbestos dust while changing brakes and clutches. If you were hurt, contact our lawyers via the form below.
A man who died at age 69 worked in close proximity to asbestos for much of his life, from his childhood spent working in his parents' garage in North Carolina to a job in Baltimore as a crane operator.
He also launched his own equipment rental business, which brought him into close contact with a pair of motor graders and a pair of track-type tractors.
He claimed the annual brake and clutch changes he performed on those machines produced dust which added to the asbestos in his chest, eventually inducing his fatal condition of mesothelioma.
The dangers of exposure to asbestos are all too familiar to the mesothelioma attorneys in the Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. Asbestos Litigation unit here in the United States.
We are a leading plaintiffs' law firm that has represented people affected by mesothelioma for over 20 years. Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure or secondary exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.
