We Help Metal Workers Exposed To Asbestos

Today's safety standards for the metalworks industry are far different from what they were before the 1980s. Then, the metal works industry used many products that contained dangerous asbestos, including insulation, lagging and protective clothing. Every day, metal workers risked exposure to asbestos fibers, which can cause mesothelioma and lung cancer.

You have the option to seek compensation if you were exposed to asbestos through your metalworking job. Our law firm, Gori Julian & Associates, P.C., can help.

We have over 100 years' experience representing Illinois metalworkers who contracted asbestos-related illnesses. We can help you hold the party responsible for your asbestos exposure responsible for its negligence. Then, we can help you obtain financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Which Metalworking Professions Faced Asbestos Exposure?

Because metalworkers spend so much of their time handling materials composed of asbestos, they face an increased hazard of developing asbestos-related illnesses. Numerous jobs in the metalworking industry require contact with asbestos-laden products. Just a few of these occupations include:

  • Welders
  • Iron workers
  • Steel mill workers
  • Blacksmiths
  • Factory workers
  • Smelters

Even if you do not currently work in the metalworking industry, you may have come into contact with asbestos fibers at a previous job. You may need to seek medical treatment to determine whether you developed an asbestos-related illness and then discuss your legal options with a lawyer.
