Painters have a right to file a lawsuit if they have been harmed by asbestos.
We now know that painters are among those workers who are at risk for exposure to asbestos-containing materials on the job.
We recently heard from a man who was employed as a painter for an air force base and said he had been exposed to asbestos.
After investigating, we found that he had in fact been exposed to numerous products that contained asbestos, including drywall and joint compound.
Our research revealed that the companies that manufactured and sold those asbestos-containing materials knew that what they were selling was harmful to the public.
Many painters have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
