Find Out Who is Responsible for Exposing You to Asbestos
Whether they were performing repairs or maintenance in older buildings, or were part of a crew that built or maintained plumbing systems prior to the banning of asbestos in the early ‘80s, plumbers in New York have long been at risk for asbestos exposure. Asbestos was commonly used to insulate pipes, ducts, and tanks throughout much of the 20th century.
Asbestos is commonly found in the following:
- JOINT COMPOUNDS
- PIPE BLOCKS
- WELDING RODS
Even today if you are required to drill, sand, or cut through a product containing asbestos you are at an increased risk for developing an asbestos-related illness later in life. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestosis, you will want an aggressive New York asbestos exposure attorney on your side as soon as possible to help you get the compensation you deserve.

UNDERSTANDING YOUR RISKS
Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of mesothelioma and asbestosis. These deadly and aggressive diseases result from the inhalation of microscopic asbestos particles and dust which are often too small to be seen by the human eye. Many plumbers working in older buildings may wear protective gear when dealing with asbestos, but even masks and coverings are no guarantee against exposure.
When you are exposed to asbestos and develop an illness, you and your family may be entitled to significant compensation. However, because it can take years for asbestos exposure to result in mesothelioma or asbestosis, many plumbers are unaware of their right to seek compensation through legal action.
