Asbestos exposure on construction sites was commonplace in the 1940’s, 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s. Recently, I was able to help a man who was exposed to asbestos during that time. He worked throughout the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area and was diagnosed this year with mesothelioma. As is typical in asbestos mesothelioma cases, the diagnosis was made after a biopsy of his lung and a nodule. He is actually retired in Arizona, but since his exposure as a construction worker in the Sheet Metals Union took place here in Wisconsin, the basis for his lawsuit against manufactures and distributors of asbestos laced products is here and based on their causing his mesothelioma.
