Asbestos use in Rochester
Through the 1970s, asbestos was commonly used in the construction of buildings throughout Rochester and the rest of New York. From homes to schools to office buildings to factories, the dangerous material was used and it can still be found in many buildings around town today. In addition to building materials, asbestos was commonly used in many components of boilers, turbines, engines, valves, pipes, packing, and refrigeration equipment. It was also used in Navy shipyards throughout New York.
Asbestos exposure can lead to mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and other serious diseases. These illnesses do not develop until decades after a person was exposed to asbestos. So Rochester residents who worked with or in the vicinity of this dangerous material years ago are just now being diagnosed with these life-threatening diseases. Even people who experienced secondhand exposure ─ such as family members of those who worked with asbestos ─ may develop mesothelioma.
At Belluck & Fox, our Rochester mesothelioma lawyers have decades of experience holding asbestos companies accountable for the pain they have inflicted on innocent people. Our dedicated attorneys have devoted vast amounts of resources to pinpoint how, when, and where people in Rochester were exposed to asbestos. Now, we fight fiercely for full and fair compensation for those who have been diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases.
