Our asbestos lawyers have helped many foundry workers receive settlement compensation.
Foundry workers are at a particularly high risk for developing an asbestos related disease.
This is because asbestos has been used in foundries on pipe laggings, boiler coverings, as insulation in fan housings, in gloves, aprons and curtains, as insulation in cupolas, and in ladles and insulation in sand molds.
Many foundry workers were exposed to asbestos in the course of various job duties, including cleaning out cupolas by chipping out asbestos residue, mixing refractory cement, and working around ladles and mill rooms where asbestos-containing refractory products were used.
This, in turn, imperiled the health of those foundry workers.
If this has been your experience, we may be able to help.
For over two decades, Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. has handled some of the most legally complicated and groundbreaking asbestos litigation in the country. 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.
