Equipment Companies: Mesothelioma

Asbestos Companies Asbestos LawsuitsPeople that worked for Equipment Companies may have been exposed to high levels of toxic asbestos from a list of over 3,000 asbestos-containing products. Tradesman that worked at Equipment Companies installing, repairing and replacing products and materials are also at risk of developing an asbestos-related disease in their lifetime.

Asbestos was used heavily in U. S. Building Trades between 1930-1980. Over 27 million workers are at risk for developing Malignant Mesothelioma in their lifetime. Asbestos Trust Funds have paid out nearly 21 billion to more than 600,000 asbestos claimants. There are about 65 active Asbestos Trust Funds with an estimated $32 billion in remaining assets.

Asbestos-containing products were used in the building and construction of office buildings, industrial parks, plants, factories, refineries, mills, and shipyards. U. S workers were exposed to toxic asbestos products on a daily basis in their workplace. Asbestos was used in walls, ceilings, flooring, wiring, drywall, paints, metals, glues, pipes and heating systems.

Asbestos fibers are very tiny as small as .03 microns. The human eye can see particles to about 40 microns. These microscopic particles are very dangerous and when inhaled or ingested and can lay dormant in a human body for 10-50 years. These asbestos particles can weaken the human immune system and may lead to malignant Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers. The average age for a person diagnosed with Mesothelioma is 69.

U. S. Military Veterans and Asbestos Exposure

Veterans Mesothelioma LawsuitsMilitary Veterans have a 1 in 3 chance of developing an asbestos related disease in their lifetime. Veterans have the right to bring lawsuits against negligent asbestos companies for exposing them to toxic asbestos-containing products and materials.

There are 21.5 million current living Veterans according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans who served between 1940 and 1970 have the greatest risk of developing Mesothelioma or an asbestos-related cancer. Navy Veterans who served during World War II and the Korean War have the highest incidence of Asbestos-related diseases.

The U.S. Military used thousands of Asbestos-Containing Products in their ships between the 1920-late 1970’s. 14 in every 1,000 WW II Shipyard Workers died of an asbestos-related disease compared to 18 in every 1,000 combat related deaths.

  • Mesothelioma primarily occurs in Veterans between the ages of 55-75.
  • Asbestos was listed as the top contaminant at 32 U.S. Army base closures during the 1990s.

How Second-Hand Asbestos Exposure Occurs

When asbestos is disturbed, broken apart, cut, decayed, or damaged, it releases tiny asbestos microscopic fibrous particles that can cling to hair and clothing. These asbestos fibers are easily transferred to others where they can accumulate in the lining of lungs that cause mesothelioma lung cancer.

Asbestos is most dangerous when it is;

Abandoned Deteriorated Loose
Aged Disturbed Marred
Blown Off Dried Peeled
Breaks Drilled Pulverized
Brittle Exposed Removed
Broken Falling Apart Replaced
Bucked Flaming Rotted
Burnt Fragmented Sanded
Carried Frayed Sawed
Chiseled Friable Scorched
Chopped Glued Scraped
Cracked Grinded Scratched
Crumbled Ground Shrunk
