Exposure to asbestos dust generally leads to serious illnesses many years later
Many hard working individuals such as shipfitters, pipefitters and demolition workers have developed serious illnesses such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis from exposure to asbestos dust.
Sadly, many of these diligent people were not informed that they were being exposed to asbestos dust either by their employers or asbestos manufacturers. Their illnesses developed many years after their exposure to asbestos dust. Shockingly, in some cases, the loved ones of these hard working people also developed asbestos illnesses from inhaling asbestos fibers that clung to the clothes of those who worked with asbestos.
From shipfitters, pipefitters and demolition workers, to those toiling on railroads and in construction, Weitz & Luxenberg has many clients whose needless and entirely avoidable exposure to asbestos dust ultimately led to them developing asbestos-related diseases.
