Until 1978, products used in applying drywall and plaster contained asbestos such as joint compounds, spackling compounds, taping, topping, texturing, and patching compounds. As a result, many construction tradesmen were exposed to this harmful substance. The threat to the health of plasterers and drywallers continues, long after they retired or changed occupations.
If you worked as a drywaller, plasterer or laborer, and you suffer from mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, you may be eligible for compensation. You should speak with a workplace asbestos exposure attorney concerning your rights as soon as possible.
Advocates for Drywallers and Plasterers With Mesothelioma Injuries
For example, Brayton Purcell LLP obtained a jury verdict and an $8.4 million award for Jack Reynolds, a former drywaller. In our product liability suit, we successfully proved that the negligence of Hamilton Materials, Inc., a manufacturer of joint compounds and drywall preparation products, led to Mr. Reynolds contracting mesothelioma.
We also obtained a $5.2 million verdict in a Utah peritonial mesothelioma case for Vickie Warren, who was suffering from a rare case of peritoneal mesothelioma, caused by joint compound against Georgia-Pacific, LLP, Hamilton Materials, Inc., and Union Carbide Corporation.
At Brayton Purcell LLP, we are strong advocates for injured people and the families of wrongful death victims. Our law firm provides vigorous, results-oriented representation for drywallers, plasterers, and laborers who suffer from asbestos-related diseases, seeking maximum compensation in every case.
The Risks of Asbestos in Construction Materials
Though asbestos has been removed from many construction materials, it is still used in some products to this day. The substance has been directly linked to potentially fatal diseases such as mesothelioma and other types of lung cancer. If you contracted mesothelioma or you suffer from asbestosis, Brayton Purcell LLP can represent you, seeking full compensation for your medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses.
