Representation for Boilermakers & Boiler Mechanics in Manhattan, Brooklyn & More
If you have worked as a boilermaker or boiler mechanic, you may be at an increased risk for mesothelioma and other asbestos-related illnesses. Boilers generate heat and, for a majority of the 20th century, asbestos was used to refract the heat around these devices. Asbestos exposure for those who have worked on or around boilers is not only possible, it is highly probable.
Boilermakers and boiler mechanics who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestosis are entitled to seek compensation for both economic and noneconomic damages. New York boilermaker asbestos exposure attorney Joseph Williams is prepared to take theses cases and fight for justice, helping victims get the compensation they are entitled to.

HAZARDS FACED BY BOILERMAKERS
Boilers and their component parts were insulted with asbestos for decades. When a boiler requires maintenance, cutting through this insulation allows asbestos dust and fibers to be released into the air. Even the aprons and gloves used to protect boilermakers and mechanics may be insulted with asbestos, allowing protective gear to expose a worker to harmful toxins as well.
Once exposed, it may take several years for mesothelioma or asbestosis to develop. Sadly, this means that exposed workers are often older and more physically vulnerable when these illnesses manifest, which can further complicate effective treatment.
