Engineers: Did asbestos dust in a factory cause mesothelioma? Our asbestos lawyers can help you seek justice.
The widow of a man who died of mesothelioma cancer is moving forward with legal proceedings against those responsible for negligently exposing her husband to the carcinogen asbestos. He had reportedly lived near an asbestos factory where his father was an engineer.
It is believed her husband was the victim of exposure to asbestos dusts and fibers from the asbestos factory. He died from mesothelioma three years ago.He visited the factory a few times as a child with his father, who worked there as a telephone engineer.
He also attended school within a mile of the factory and asbestos dust was constantly within the grounds and classroom.
Of his tragic death, his widow reportedly said: "I urgently need witnesses to come forward who can confirm what conditions were like in the area around the factory and inside. Anyone who has lost a loved one to mesothelioma will know that it is excruciating, and also has no cure."
Many tools used in factory work contained asbestos. Even protective gear was a source of asbestos exposure: Fireproof aprons and gloves were lined with asbestos material which could release fibers if the outer layer were torn or worn through.
