Foundry Worker Lung Cancer Legal Help – More Inside
Foundry workers are an indispensable part of the economy. Glass is a ubiquitous compound found in almost every facet of modern life. Foundry workers are responsible for pouring molten silica into moulds, creating the beautiful glass appliances we have come to depend on, from windows to TV screens to mobile phones to name but a few. However, asbestos exposure is a common compliant and concern in the lives of foundry workers who already have to work in a stressful, high risk environment. Asbestos is a toxic compound that has been shown to have the potential to cause a number of cancers. Foundry workers often belong to a union that represents them when it comes to wage and labor disputes. However, this isn’t something that helps when a foundry worker is injured as the union will find any way to limit liability or the payout when one of their own gets injured. It is for this reason that you need to work with a foundry asbestos exposure attorney in order to recover substantial and maximum compensation to make you whole again.

Asbestos was first used in the 1900’s and it was prized for its insulating abilities and the fact that it is virtually fireproof. It is estimated that over 30 million tons was utilized in the country in one form of the other, particularly in homes, shipyards, industrial stations and in factories. Asbestos’s toxicity lies in its ability to go become airborne and reach the lungs via inhalation, causing lung scarring which then sets the stage for abnormal cell proliferation, mutations, and finally, the development of aggressive cancers such as mesothelioma.
Some of the symptoms of mesothelioma include:
- Persistent coughing
- Swelling of the stomach
- Trouble breathing
- Trouble swallowing
- Sudden weight loss
- Tissue lumps in the abdomen and chest
Foundry Workers and Asbestos Exposure – How Does It Happen?
Foundry workers are typically exposed to asbestos from pumps, boilers, furnaces, ovens and valves which were typically lined with asbestos in the past. In addition, the protective equipment they donned to protect them from the intense furnace heat was in the past lined with asbestos, particularly the aprons, gloves and curtains. Over the years, this asbestos breaks down into microscopic particles
