If working in crawl spaces caused asbestos cancer or asbestosis, our lawyers can help
Recently, a man who worked in boiler rooms and crawl spaces, where he was exposed to asbestos in insulation and on pipes and ducts, contacted us about his asbestos-related cancer.
He was unaware while doing that dangerous work that airborne fibers and other particles of asbestos are a major lung irritant capable of causing the serious and frequently fatal disease known as asbestosis among chronically exposed workers.
Asbestos is an especially potent hazard in such confined areas as building crawl spaces, tunnels, and storage areas which have dirt floors and where asbestos has been installed as furnace pipe insulation and steel girder insulation.
Many people who worked in confined areas such as crawl spaces have come forward to say their job environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
