Asbestos Attorney Serving New York & the Surrounding Boroughs
Asbestos was a staple in the building trades for nearly half of the 20th century. This mineral was used as both a heat reducer and flame retardant in insulation, pipes, laminates, plaster, and a number of other building materials in the United States through the early 1980s. Anyone working in the building trades during this time is at a very high risk for asbestos-related illnesses such as mesothelioma.
Carpenters may have been exposed to asbestos during its heyday by working directly with products such as caulking, joint compounds, and fire doors. Asbestos exposure may have also occurred while working in unventilated areas with other tradesmen who were using asbestos products. Modern carpenters face exposure when working on things including wall boards and ceiling tiles that were installed between the 1940s and 1980s. In both cases, a dedicated attorney will be necessary if you are diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness.

Mesothelioma and asbestosis may not occur until long after asbestos exposure. In fact, it is not uncommon for these deadly illnesses to take 20 years or more before showing symptoms. This means that carpenters who were exposed to asbestos as long ago as the 1960s may only just now be facing a diagnosis.
No matter how long these illnesses take to manifest, carpenters who are diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness deserve a competent attorney who can help see that compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and similar damages is awarded. New York mesothelioma attorney Joseph P. Williams is prepared to stand side by side with asbestos victims and fight for their rights to see that justice is served.
