Attorneys For Former Workers At The Superdome Site That Have Been Diagnosed With Mesothelioma Or Have Recently Died
There is solid evidence that many of the people who worked on the construction of the Louisiana Superdome were exposed to asbestos, and many have developed <a href=”http://www.neworleanspersonalinjury.com/2014/11/can-short-term-asbestos-exposure-in-new-orleans-cause-mesothelioma-later-in-life/”>asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma in subsequent decades</a>.
If you were part of the workforce that constructed the Louisiana Superdome in the early 1970s, your risk for developing a disease like mesothelioma may be higher than that of the general population.
Because the Superdome was built prior to a widespread awareness of the risks of asbestos and the enhanced regulations that went into effect in the years after, workers in a variety of disciplines may have been exposed to airborne asbestos fibers.
The problem with asbestos is that it is comprised of microscopic fibers that are light but rigid. Asbestos has been used in thousands of applications over a period of many centuries, and during the construction of the Superdome, asbestos was widely used as an insulator and fireproofing agent. When asbestos tears or breaks, the small fibers break loose and can contaminate even a large space.
The Superdome is full of large spaces, and steel workers, pipe fitters, electricians and other workers may have inadvertently inhaled or swallowed airborne fibers, where they could become lodged in body tissue, and ultimately lead to diseases like mesothelioma.
