Were You Exposed to Asbestos in the Telecommunications Industry?

Legally Reviewed by Joseph P. Williams on May 2, 2024

Asbestos exposure remains a significant health risk in many industries, including telecommunications. Workers in this field may find themselves inadvertently exposed to asbestos through the installation, repair, or maintenance of older infrastructure containing this hazardous material. Unfortunately, asbestos exposure can lead to life-altering health conditions, including asbestosis and mesothelioma. 

If you were exposed to asbestos as a telecommunications worker and later developed mesothelioma or another serious health complication, you may have grounds to file a claim for the losses you have suffered. At The Williams Law Firm, P.C., our lead attorney, Joe Williams, has over three decades of experience advocating for the rights and interests of those exposed to asbestos. He understands your unique challenges and can even meet you in your home to begin work on your case. When you retain his services, you can rest assured your case is in the capable hands of a trusted legal professional. 

How Are Telecommunications Workers Exposed to Asbestos?

While many individuals do not associate phone company workers with exposure to hazardous materials like asbestos, many individuals in the telecommunications industry are exposed to asbestos fibers on a daily basis. Whether you were an installer, equipment engineer, line technician, construction worker, job supervisor, or account representative, all telecommunication workers may have encountered materials containing asbestos while at work. 

A few materials you may have been exposed to on the job include the following:

  • Asbestos-braided and covered cables
  • Cable hole covers
  • Cable bags
  • Ebony power boards
  • Acoustical plaster
  • Insulation
  • Floor and ceiling tiles
  • Wallboards and joint compounds
  • Textured ceilings and other decorative materials
  • Fibrous components in older telephones, including washers and textiles

This is not a complete list, and there may have been other asbestos-containing products and building materials you may have been exposed to at work. An experienced mesothelioma attorney can review every detail of your case to determine the cause of your exposure and who can be held accountable for your losses.
