Injuries resulting from construction work are common and many injuries among construction workers are caused by exposure to hazardous materials. One hazardous material, asbestos, has been used in construction products for years. Exposure to asbestos can lead to devastating diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
Construction workers utilized a broad range of materials, and for over seven decades, many building products contained a lethal substance — asbestos. Asbestos was thought to be the perfect construction material and was frequently added to other products to make them lighter, stronger, fireproof and thermally stable.
As a result, a variety of different roles on construction sites were exposed to asbestos on the job, including:

This is because of the long latency period associated with the disease; workers who had asbestos exposure 10, 20, or even 50 years ago are now experiencing mesothelioma symptoms.
If you or a loved one is experiencing mesothelioma symptoms as a result of asbestos exposure in the construction industry, you may be eligible to file a mesothelioma lawsuit. Please fill out the form below to speak with an asbestos attorney about a potential case.
