Construction is a dangerous field even at the best of times. Accidents are preventable, however, and many laws and regulations have been enacted over the years to limit foreseeable accidents. What does one do, however, when the accident isn’t visible?

Asbestos is a very dangerous material. Many studies have proven the medical link between asbestos and a rare form of cancer known as mesothelioma. Unfortunately, asbestos includes some very convenient properties: It is strong and very resistant to electrical and chemical damage. For these reasons it has been used in the construction industry in a variety of places. These may include:

•Acoustical panels, ceilings, and finishes; including popcorn ceilings

•As an insulation material, for boilers or ducts

•In cement pipes, sheets, and sidings

•Texture coatings, gaskets, floor leveling compounds, vinyl sheets, loose fill insulation, also sometimes known as vermiculite

•Elevator brake shows, insulating cement, some kinds of putty and caulking materials

Manufacturers fought legally to avoid taking responsibility for their mistakes by creating class action settlements, which would limit their responsibility to all present and future victims. The law firm of Baron and Budd fought a number of legal battles culminating in the Amchem Products v. Windsor and Ortiz v. Fibreboard Corp. The Supreme Court ruled that such settlements were unfair.

If you are employed in the construction industry, there is a chance that you may have been exposed to asbestos in some way. Studies suggest that even minimal exposure is enough to cause mesothelioma. Since this disease generally takes more than 15 years to manifest, it is important to do what you can right from the start. Speak to an experienced mesothelioma attorney today to begin seeking compensation for your losses. An attorney will be able to pinpoint who is exactly at fault and will work with you to receive compensation. These attorneys are not paid unless they receive compensation for their clients, so victims of asbestos exposure do not have to worry about costs upfront.

The firm of Baron and Budd, P.C. was at the forefront of this fight. This law firm has represented victims of asbestosis and mesothelioma for more than 30 years.
