Are you a fireman with mesothelioma cancer? Contact our lawyers to learn about financial compensation.
Many people are unaware that a fireman is at risk for asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, lung cancer and other lung ailments.
Asbestos in fires may become airborne when it is released from damaged insulation or other building components.
Unfortunately, a fireman risks mesothelioma by breathing in asbestos dust.
Insulation often contains asbestos, especially in older buildings and homes throughout the United States.
When a fire breaks out or a structure collapses, the asbestos–containing insulation may become damaged, releasing asbestos dust.
If the insulation was in need of repair before the fire, it is even more likely that asbestos will become airborne.
These factors imperil the lives of any fireman who arrives at the scene and is exposed.
Many firemen have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
