Millwrights and asbestos exposure: Gain compensation for your health problems.
Millwrights who worked in environments where they were exposed even indirectly to airborne asbestos-containing dust are at risk for diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
Those asbestos-associated diseases are common in the construction trades because of the previously widespread use of asbestos-containing insulation materials.
Workers in metal-related trades, employed at construction sites and power facilities, but who do not routinely handle such materials as part of their work, may also be at risk for significant asbestos exposure.
These workers include millwright and machinery erectors.
A millwright performs a variety of tasks including welding, carpentry, and precision mechanical work.
Millwrights also install, provide maintenance and repair many types of machines and equipment. This places them at risk for asbestos exposure.
Our firm has come across many stories where men and women toiled unprotected from asbestos, later developing mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis as a result of that exposure.
For over two decades, Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. has handled some of the most legally complicated and groundbreaking asbestos litigation in the country. Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure or secondary exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.
