Welding Companies: Mesothelioma
People that worked for Welding 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 Welding 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.
Diagnosed With Mesothelioma?
If you have been diagnosed with malignant Mesothelioma or an Asbestos related cancer you may be eligible to receive compensation from responsible asbestos manufacturers and Asbestos Trust Funds for your asbestos exposure.
- Asbestos exposure is responsible for approximately 10,000 deaths each year in the United States.
- 1 in every 125 males over 55 will be diagnosed with an asbestos related cancer in their lifetime.
- More than 20 million American workers have been exposed to asbestos with the heaviest usage in the U. S. during 1930-1980.
- Malignant Mesothelioma is commonly diagnosed in people between the ages of 50 and 75 years old.
- There are 2,500-3,000 malignant Mesothelioma cases diagnosed each year in the United States.
- 1 in 3 U. S. military veterans will develop an asbestos related disease in their lifetime.
- Men are 4 times more likely to be diagnosed with malignant Mesothelioma than females.
- 70-80% of all diagnosed Malignant Mesothelioma cases reported had workplace experience.

List of Industrial Plant Workers Exposed to Asbestos
Industrial workers that labored in boiler rooms, engine rooms, industrial plants, industrial factories, and industrial facilities that were exposed to these asbestos products have a higher risk of developing an asbestos related disease in their lifetime.
Inside Office Workers and Mesothelioma
Industrial workers were not only exposed to asbestos working at outside job sites, plants and factories they were also exposed inside of company offices. Asbestos was used throughout office buildings pre 1980 in pipes, insulation, drywall, paints, wiring, floors, tiles, wallboards, cements, glues, adhesives along with 3,000 other products used on a daily basis. If you have a history of work-related asbestos exposure you should be checked each year by a qualified doctor. Office workers exposed to asbestos includes.

U. S. Military Veterans and Asbestos Exposure
Military 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.
- A recent study showed that as many as 30-40% of Mesothelioma victims is U. S. Veterans.
Malignant Mesothelioma has been medically linked to workplace asbestos exposure.
Median Survival Rate for Mesothelioma Patients by Stage
- Stage 1 – 21 months
- Stage 2 – 19 months
- Stage 3 – 16 months
- Stage 4 – under 12 months
Mesothelioma Symptoms Include:
- Chest pain
- Chronic cough
- Difficulty breathing
- Difficulty swallowing
- Fever or night sweats
- Fluid build-up in lungs
- Heart palpitations
- Heart murmurs
- Irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia)
- Orthopnea (dyspnea when lying down)
- Shortness of breath
- Thickening of Pericardial Layers
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.
