Ammunition Factory Workers May Seek Lawsuit Compensation For a Mesothelioma Diagnosis.
In recent news about the dangers of asbestos exposure, a man who worked at an ammunitions factory contracted mesothelioma.
Ammunition Plants historically have contained large amounts of asbestos materials.
He had a long history of working with and around asbestos, which began when he left school at 15 and worked as an apprentice chemical plumber at the ammunition factory.
Before his death, he recalled working with pipes coated in asbestos lagging and said his face would often be very close to it when being removed. He also cut asbestos gaskets in the workshop.
He said he also came in contact with asbestos while doing plumbing for City buildings.
His wife of 20 years said her husband felt his time at the ammunition factory contributed to his ill health and said a successful lawsuit compensation claim was made.
Many ammunition factory workers have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
