Mechanics & Asbestos: Some friction-based products, such as brakes and clutches, contain asbestos.
Even the industry trade association, the Friction Materials Standards Institute, accepted that mechanics could get cancer from the dust and needed to employ dust controls and respirators, in a work practices guide published in 1978.
The dangers of asbestos are all too familiar to the mesothelioma attorneys in the Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. Asbestos Litigation unit.
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.
