In recent news about the dangers of exposure to asbestos, a mechanic is taking legal action for his mesothelioma cancer diagnosis, which he believes may have been caused by an asbestos roof and other asbestos-containing materials at his former jobs.
The 60-year-old mechanic reportedly contracted malignant mesothelioma – the industrial lung disease – early last year.
His New York-based attorneys have highlighted the fact that the disease can take up to 50 years to develop and point to his occupation and associated job sites as sources of exposure to asbestos.
The man began working on engines back in 1965 and it is claimed that he spent much of the time working in the general machine shop and engine shop, which had an asbestos-lined roof and insulation on the walls.
His lawyers said their client was also assigned to the construction of a submarine, which involved working in confined circumstances in proximity to other workers, including men mixing and applying asbestos insulation.
They claim their client was not provided with respiratory protection nor warned as to the dangers of exposure to asbestos dust.
