Did your work as a metal lather cause an asbestos illness? We can help you gain compensation.
The plaster frequently used to cover the metal lathing was called "cement asbestos."
Metal lathers were responsible for sanding it down, which released asbestos fibers into the air. They were also exposed when their work entailed removing the cement to replace a wall covering.
Still other ways metal lathers were exposed to asbestos include through the asbestos insulation on piping systems and through the shingles and times that were made with asbestos.
Sadly, as the asbestos lawyers in the Weitz & Luxenberg Asbestos Litigation unit have seen through their work, this is a common example of people who were exposed to carcinogens simply because the powers that be failed to have in place routine safety measures.
Weitz & Luxenberg is a leading plaintiffs' law firm that has represented people affected by mesothelioma for over 20 years. Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.
