Smithsonian Worker Diagnosed with Asbestosis

Richard Pullman has worked at the Smithsonian for 27 years as a lighting specialist. His job entailed cutting into walls and installing and updating artifacts and exhibits. A year ago, there was a safety briefing on asbestos awareness. In this meeting, the safety coordinator revealed to Pullman for the first time that there is asbestos in the walls of the Smithsonian. Pullman has been working around asbestos unknowingly and unprotected for 27 years.

Shortly after Pullman found out about the asbestos, he went to a lung doctor and was diagnosed with asbestosis. However, the Smithsonian disputes the danger associated with the asbestos in the museum. According to them, air tests have revealed that there are no dangerous levels of asbestos. The asbestos does not pose a danger if it is left undisturbed. However, cutting into it and releasing it into the air with saw dust as Pullman did makes it very dangerous.

If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos, contact the Maryland mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-781-3955.
