Sheet Metal Workers: An occupation with high risk for asbestos diseases. Get a free lawsuit review below if you have been harmed.
Sheet metal workers install and maintain ducts used for ventilating, air conditioning, and heating systems. They also are involved with roofing, siding, gutters, and downspouts. In their work, they may have been exposed to asbestos insulation or asbestos–containing tiles used in roofing.
Tragically, many employers who knew of the health risks associated with asbestos did not create a safe working environment for their employees.
Many sheet metal workers, and others in high-risk trades, were completely unaware of the dangers of asbestos, which is now a known carcinogen and can lead to diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
Sadly, this situation, where exposure to asbestos was easily preventable, is all too familiar to the mesothelioma attorneys in the Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. Asbestos Litigation unit.
We are a leading plaintiffs' law firm that has represented people affected by mesothelioma for over 20 years. Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.
