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.
Many workers have come forward to say their jobs led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
