Between the years 1940 and 1980 asbestos was used in the manufacturing of houses and many other types of buildings. Many carpenters who worked in the construction, renovation or demolition of those buildings have been exposed to harmful asbestos particles. If you or a loved one has been exposed to asbestos and is suffering from mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, it is important to consult with an experienced asbestos litigation attorney.
At Wallace & Graham, P.A., we have obtained numerous verdicts and settlements for carpenters exposed to asbestos and their family members. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, our asbestos claim lawyers represent clients across the nation. Call 855-280-6685 for a free consultation.
You may have worked in construction or carpentry decades ago and are only now being affected by exposure to asbestos particles. Many materials carpenters worked with and still work with today contain asbestos, including:
When these building materials are broken or sawed into, the asbestos-bearing parts break up and release toxic asbestos dust into the air. When these particles lodge in the lungs, they can do significant damage, often leading to mesothelioma.
If you or a loved one worked as a carpenter and is now suffering from the effects of asbestos exposure, we can help. Our top priority is diagnosis and medical benefits for clients to begin life-extending treatment as soon as possible. Our attorneys also pursue injury and wrongful death damages for loss of income, the victim’s pain and suffering, and survivors’ loss of companionship and support.
