Millwrights are specialized laborers who install and repair large machines and equipment such as boilers, turbines and generators. In the past and even today, many millwrights are at risk of asbestos exposure. If you or someone close to you is a millwright and has mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, it is important to consult with an experienced asbestos litigation attorney.
At Wallace & Graham, P.A., we represent millwrights and other people who have been exposed to asbestos and are now suffering from the effects of exposure. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, our mesothelioma lawyers represent clients across the nation. Call 855-280-6685 for a free consultation.
Because millwrights often work on repairing and removing outdated equipment, they often have to handle equipment that was made in the asbestos era — products containing asbestos insulation, such as gaskets, water pumps, chemical pumps and turbines.
In the course of their work, millwrights often have to trim asbestos-containing components to a certain size. Cutting asbestos products grinds them down to a fine dust that can be inhaled. Asbestos inhalation can lead to mesothelioma, a rare but deadly form of cancer.
If you or a loved one worked as a millwright 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.
