Mesothelioma Lawyer Serving Queens, the Bronx & Greater New York
Tradesmen who have previously or are currently working as pipefitters may have been exposed to asbestos at several times while performing normal job duties. Installing and repairing pipe systems in older New York buildings can disturb asbestos fibers in pipe insulation, valves and gaskets, and related materials. In addition, cutting through wall panels, cement, and even removing old ceiling tiles to expose pipe systems can lead to asbestos exposure and place you at risk for serious and deadly diseases.
People who worked as pipefitters in the mid-20th century worked directly with asbestos-containing materials on a daily basis. From pumps and valves to packing and insulation, asbestos was common in several building materials until the early 1980s. Pipefitters who have been diagnosed with asbestosis or mesothelioma deserve a committed New York asbestos exposure attorney who will fight tooth and nail to secure proper compensation.

MESOTHELIOMA ILLNESS LATENCY PERIOD
The latency period between initial asbestos exposure and mesothelioma has been known to exceed 50 years. While this is rare, it shows that pipefitters who have not worked in the industry since the 1960s may still only now be facing a diagnosis. The average latency period for mesothelioma is 20 years, but some people will begin to develop symptoms as soon as ten years after exposure.
Developing symptoms of mesothelioma ten years or 50 years after exposure to asbestos is beside the point. The bottom line is that victims of asbestos exposure deserve justice. Joseph Williams is a compassionate attorney with the tenacity necessary to take your case as far as needed to help secure the compensation you deserve.
