We help diesel mechanics seek compensation for their asbestos illnesses.
You may have reached this website page because you are concerned about being exposed to asbestos in your job as a diesel mechanic or technician.
Diesel service technicians and mechanics are employed in almost every industry, particularly those that use trucks, buses, and equipment to haul, deliver, and transport materials, goods, and people.
The largest employer is the truck transportation industry, followed by by automotive repair and maintenance facilities.
The rest are typically employed throughout construction, manufacturing, retail and wholesale trade, and automotive leasing.
Nearly every area of the country employs diesel service technicians and mechanics, although most work is found in towns and cities where trucking companies, bus lines, and other fleet owners have large operations.
Tragically, diesel engines have historically used asbestos-containing gaskets. This has led to concerns of how the harmful fibers and dust will affect the mechanics who have been exposed.
Many diesel mechanics have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
If this has been your experience, our asbestos lawyers may be able to help you receive compensation for your health problems.
For over two decades, Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. has handled some of the most legally complicated and groundbreaking asbestos litigation in the country, winning many millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements along the way.
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.
