Plumbers may be at risk of developing mesothelioma

Insulation that is used to protect water pipes in thousands of homes and comercial properties can be very dangerous for plumbers when they are fixing or repairing the pipes.

Mineral asbestos was a popular substance to use in making insulation for pipes because of its stong resistance to corrosion and temperature extremes. Eventally, however, the public learned about the dangers of asbestos exposure, which has not been used in insulation since the 1980's. Plumbers are in a dangerous situation when fixing pipes because their work usually causes the pipe to be bent or cut. This then disturbs the asbestos, and the mineral can then be airborne and inhaled. Before the dangers of asbestos were known many plumbers would work in small, cramped spaces and did not have adequate protective gear. Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer, and other asbestos-related diseases are primarily caused from inhaling airborne particles.


If you or someone you love has been exposed to asbestos while on the job, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact the mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-781-3955.
