Pipelayers May Seek Compensation for Their Asbestos Injury. Please Complete the Form Below for a Free Lawsuit Review.
Across the United States, there are hundreds of miles of natural gas pipelines in-service that contain asbestos in their external coating. Many of the pipelayers responsible for that work were unaware at the time that working with asbestos-containing products could cause them injury in the form of diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer and asbestosis.
Pipelayers lay clay, concrete, plastic, or cast-iron pipe for drains, sewers, water mains, and oil or gas lines. Before laying the pipe, pipelayers prepare and grade the trenches either manually or with machines. After laying the pipe, they weld, glue, cement, or otherwise join the pieces together.
Many pipelayers have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
