If you considered yourself a “Mr. or Ms. Fix-It,” there was probably almost nothing you could not tackle with a little help from the local hardware store.
The problem is, up until the early 1980s, asbestos-containing materials could be found in everything from roofing and siding shingles to vermiculite insulation, vinyl flooring, textured paint and patching compounds, pipe insulation, and more. Also, if you did your own car repairs, this also included brake pads, clutches, and gaskets, too.
If you did any type of home repair work, home remodeling or auto repair work in the past, you are potentially at risk of developing an asbestos-related disease. As experienced asbestos injury lawyers, we have handled hundreds of cases involving victims of asbestos exposure from home repair work and/or auto repair work. If you want to know more, call us.
