New York Bricklayer Asbestos Exposure Lawyer
Bricklayers, like others in the skilled building trades, are at an increased risk of mesothelioma caused by the exposure to asbestos. Many bricklayers have worked directly with or around asbestos containing materials while installing fireplaces or working with fire-retardant brick. Asbestos exposure is also possible when working with or around kilns or furnaces, particularly those that were built decades ago.
Asbestos is often found in:
- CEMENT ROOFS
- SEWER PIPES
- WALL CLADDING
- ELECTRICAL INSULATION
Bricklayers and masons who worked in the building trades beginning in the 1950s and through the ‘80s may have been directly exposed to asbestos in new building materials. In the 1980s, it was common practice to spray asbestos insulation in brick buildings, significantly increasing the risk of inhalation of asbestos dust and fibers.
