Are you an ironworker with asbestos health problems? Our lawyers may be able to help secure you settlement compensation.
We now know that ironworkers are at a high risk for developing asbestos related diseases due to their direct contact with the deadly mineral.
An ironworker is a person who works to erect, assemble and install fabricated structural steel in industrial, commercial and some residential construction. This includes work on buildings or factories, stadiums, bridges, or ships.
Ironworkers are also tasked with demolishing buildings. They may also conduct repairs and work with construction equipment such as cranes.
Unfortunately, many ironworkers have been directly exposed to asbestos. The iron beams they worked with were often sprayed with an asbestos-containing material in order to render them heat and fire resistant.
Many ironworkers 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.
