Demolition Workers’ Dangers

Demolition workers face dangers on the job every day, but they may face a silent killer and not even know it. Buildings that were constructed prior to 1980 were likely constructed with asbestos or asbestos-based products. Known for being fire-resistant and extremely strong, asbestos was used in millions of construction products before it was banned in 1979. Unfortunately, thousands of people had been exposed to the dangerous fibers of asbestos at that point, and demolition workers may still be in danger today.

If you or someone you know has suffered from asbestos exposure, it is important to explore your legal rights as a victim of exposure. Contact the experienced and dedicated mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Hart today at 800-781-3955 to learn about your legal options.

Dangers of Asbestos Exposure

When asbestos fibers are unbroken, they are not dangerous. However, it is often during the demolition or remodeling process of construction that these fibers are broken and become easy to inhale. Some of the most dangerous effects of asbestos exposure include:

  • Lung scarring
  • Asbestosis
  • Mesothelioma
  • Death

Unfortunately, many people were wholly unaware of the dangers of exposure to asbestos, as companies neglected to tell people of its deadliness. As a result, many people have suffered debilitating illnesses and death, causing trauma for both themselves and their loved ones.
