Compensation for Car Mechanics With Mesothelioma Injuries
Brayton Purcell LLP has recovered maximum compensation for victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. Our asbestos lawyers will be your strong advocate, seeking maximum compensation for you.
As brakes and clutches containing asbestos wear down, asbestos fibers become trapped within the brake housing or clutch space. When a mechanic opens up and uses compressed air to blow out the housing to repair the component, these fibers are released into the breathing zone. The car repair shop can become covered with asbestos fibers, posing health hazards to mechanics and the public.
