NEW YORK, June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are urging a roofer or insulator with mesothelioma to call us at 800-714-0303 to ensure they have the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys working on their financial compensation claim; family members calling on behalf of a loved one too ill to act on their own are also encouraged. When people hear the word 'mesothelioma' they typically think of a Navy Veteran, shipyard worker, or power plant worker. In reality, a roofer and especially an insulator could have been heavily exposed to asbestos.
"Because a mesothelioma financial compensation claim for roofers or insulators can get complicated, by the fact there could be a limited number of defendants to pay the claims, we are urging workers in this category to aim high when it comes to hiring the most skilled and capable attorneys to assist.
"If a roofer or insulator with mesothelioma would like to receive the best possible financial compensation they will need to hire some of the nation's highest caliber full-time mesothelioma attorneys as we would like to discuss anytime." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
Prior to 1980, most US residential and commercial roofing products contained asbestos as did insulation. A roofer's greatest exposure to asbestos most likely occurred during a roof tear off for replacement. For a roofer to do a roof tear off, typically the weather conditions would have to be dry, which is the perfect circumstances for asbestos fibers to become airborne.
Unfortunately for insulators, they would install insulation in dry conditions and in enclosed areas more often than any other worker. Of all work groups, insulators had similar exposure to asbestos as did shipyard workers an Navy Veterans (US Navy Veterans are the number one group of workers exposed to asbestos). While seldom mentioned, insulators should have an annual chest x-ray if they were involved in commercial or industrial insulation jobs prior to 1980.
Vital tip on hiring a lawyer for a roofer or insulator who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma from the Mesothelioma Victims Center:
- "If the lawyer or law firm you are talking to cannot cite a recent example of a roofer, construction worker, or an insulator receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in compensation, please call us at 800-714-0303.
- "At a minimum-we want to make certain you are talking directly to some of the nation's most experienced mesothelioma attorneys who have this type of experience." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The State of Minnesota has an excellent website devoted to roofing or siding products that could contain asbestos: http://www.health.state.mn.us/divs/eh/asbestos/homeowner/roofside.html
According to the CDC, the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.
However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives a roofer or insulator with mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.
High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, manufacturing/factory workers, pulp or paper mill workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, miners, construction workers, insulators, rail road worker, roofers, or firemen. As a rule, these types of workers were exposed to asbestos in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. US Navy Veterans make up about one-third of all US Citizens who are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
