Contractors and Asbestos Exposure

In the construction business, many homes and businesses are regularly demolished and rebuilt. A contractor “contracts” different parts of a remodel to different companies, such as tile installers, drywall installers, painters, and plumbers. Although most renovations are problem-free, some contractors have realized that they have been exposed to dangerous asbestos products in renovation projects. The use of asbestos in products was formally banned in the United States in 1979, but many homes that are being renovated today contained products that were installed prior to this ban. For this reason, those who renovate or tear down buildings that were built prior to 1980 may be at an increased risk of suffering from asbestos exposure.

If you or someone you know worked as a contractor during a building renovation and is now suffering from an asbestos-related illness, contact the experienced mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Hart today at 800-781-3955 to discuss your situation with us.

Dangers of Asbestos

Asbestos exposure has the potential to cause life-threatening conditions, and sometimes these conditions do not appear until decades after the initial exposure took place. Some of the most dangerous conditions that asbestos exposure can cause include:

  • Lung scarring
  • Lung cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Asbestosis

All of these conditions can cause permanent damage or even death, so it is important to seek medical help immediately if you are exhibiting any symptoms of these conditions.
