You're a construction worker and you've spent your working life on construction sites — big and small — and were exposed to asbestos in many ways You've now been diagnosed with mesothelioma

Hi I'm Joe Williams I'm a mesothelioma trial attorney in New York City and I want to talk to you about some of the exposures that construction workers face on the job site Now construction worker is sort of a broad term to describe many different types of trades and many different types of work So over the years, my clients who were construction workers have talked to me about all the ways they believe they were exposed to asbestos

And there are many ways that construction workers breathed in asbestos dust A construction worker can be doing any job on a job site A construction worker may be laying asbestos-containing floor tile – cutting the tile, sanding it, creating dust that they breathe A construction worker could be installing sheet rock and installing the joint compound between the seams of sheet rock, letting it dry, sanding it down, applying multiple coats, letting it dry, sanding it down — all creating dust from the asbestos that was in the joint compound A construction worker could install a drop ceiling and cut the individual ceiling tiles, creating asbestos dust because the ceiling tiles had a component with asbestos in them

Construction workers can even do roofing work; on pitched roofs installing shingles on the roofs — some of which contained asbestos On flat roofs, rolling out asbestos felt or asbestos base sheet which contained asbestos; using asbestos containing mastics and flashing materials on flat roofs All these can be exposures to asbestos that construction workers can face Construction workers also can be exposed to asbestos dust created by other trades A construction worker could be a classic bystander — someone standing by for some other trade's work and breathing in the dust from the other trade's work that is happening in their vicinity

Well these are all exposures that a construction worker could face on a job site And I'm sure you have many questions about how construction workers were exposed to asbestos Well we can answer your questions I'm Joe Williams I invite you to call my office at the number listed below
