Are you a glass blower with lung disease or cancer from asbestos exposure? Seek lawsuit compensation.
In recent news on the dangers of asbestos, the widow of a glass blower who died from lung disease related to asbestos exposure filed a lawsuit to seek settlement money to pay for his medical bills.
Her husband had worked at Owens Glass plant as a glass blower, from the early '50s to the late '80s.
In his job as a glass blower, he was exposed to asbestos dust and other harmful dusts as the result of the manufacture and installation of asbestos-containing products.
For example, the man likely used glass blower mitts that contained asbestos.
Glassblower mitts are used by glass blowers to protect their hands when they are working with molten glass.
The are no longer made with asbestos but the effects of using the older mitts has taken its toll on the health of many workers.
Many of these glass blowers labored unprotected; their employers failed to give them the proper protective masks required for asbestos-related work.
Many glass blowers have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
