Personal Injury Attorney For Appliance Installers Who Were Exposed To Asbestos While Working In Louisiana
If you worked as an appliance installer or appliance repair technician in Louisiana, you should let your doctor know that you may have a history of occupational asbestos exposure.
Because the installation and repair of large and small appliances often included working with asbestos-containing materials or parts manufactured from asbestos, it was common for appliance installers and appliance repair technicians to encounter airborne asbestos fibers in their professional roles.
For those who installed large appliances onsite, some amount of remodeling was often required to fit an appliance into a given space.
Cutting into walls could liberate asbestos, while the adhesives and seals on the appliance often contained asbestos as well.
Ovens, stoves, dryers, and other high-heat appliances often contained asbestos shielding near their heating elements.

While asbestos provides excellent fireproofing capabilities, it is also a hazard to human health, and those who worked with it over a period of years run the risk of developing diseases like asbestosis and mesothelioma, a form of cancer that develops in the lining of the lungs or other organs or body cavities.
Once the asbestos fibers have been inhaled, they are small enough to work themselves deeply into the lungs, where coughing won’t expel them.
Over many years or even decades, these fibers contribute to a range of negative health outcomes, including mesothelioma.
