Aggressive Legal Representation for Victims of Mesothelioma
Tile setting is an art. A vast majority of tile setters are skilled tradesmen who have undergone apprenticeships or schooling to refine their craft, but training alone is not always sufficient to prepare a tile setter for potential health risks, like asbestos exposure.
If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos related illness, please contact The Williams Law Firm, P.C. or call (855) 971-0343today to schedule a free consultation with our renowned New York tile setter asbestos exposure attorney.
HISTORY OF ASBESTOS & TILE SETTING IN THE U.S.
Nearly all floor and ceiling tiles manufactured prior to the 1980s contain asbestos. Asbestos can also be found in a number of vinyl sheet, asphalt, and rubber tiles, as well as in adhesives, glue, and mastic used to adhere tiles for nearly half of the 20thcentury.
Tile setters who worked in the industry between 1940 and 1980 are at an increased risk for asbestos-related illnesses such as mesothelioma and asbestosis. However, because tile setters currently working in the industry may also be required to remove, cut, or otherwise disturb asbestos containing materials, the threat for exposure is just as real today.
Mesothelioma is a rare but deadly form of cancer that can only be caused by exposure to asbestos particles. Any drilling, sanding, cutting, or other disturbance of asbestos results in the release of particles that can be inhaled or even attach to clothing and hair, increasing risks long after work is done.
Symptoms of mesothelioma include:
- CHEST PAIN
- DIFFICULTY BREATHING
- FLUID BUILDUP
If you have worked as a tile setter and been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related illness, you may be entitled to seek compensation for damages such as medical expenses and pain and suffering. However, without the help of a dedicated New York mesothelioma attorney, you may never see a cent of what you are due.
