Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) November 7, 2010
The law firm of Lipsitz & Ponterio, LLC announces the launch of its new website entitled Carpenters and Mesothelioma, located at http://www.mesotheliomacarpenter.com. Among most trades, carpenters have one of the highest incidence rates for developing mesothelioma. This user-friendly website offers information regarding a carpenter’s exposure to asbestos during ship building, framing and roughing, as well as through the application and removal of asbestos-containing floor tiles, ceiling tiles, fireproofing and roofing materials, thinset and joint compound.
Carpenters and Mesothelioma serves as a unique tool for carpenters, contractors and other workers who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease. Before warnings were placed on asbestos-containing products in the mid to late 1970's, carpenters who worked in the construction or home remodeling industries were exposed to asbestos through the application and removal of hundreds of building products. When carpenters were not working directly with asbestos, they were quite often in the immediate vicinity of other tradesmen, including electricians, roofers, drywall finishers and plumbers, who also applied and removed asbestos-containing materials. Carpenters also worked shoulder-to-shoulder with fireproofers who sprayed asbestos-containing fireproofing materials on steel decking during new building construction. Lipsitz & Ponterio created Carpenters and Mesothelioma as part of an ongoing effort to provide workers with valuable information regarding exposure to asbestos-containing products. Our goal at Lipsitz & Ponterio is to ensure that information pertaining to asbestos-containing products is easily accessible to carpenters and workers who suffer from mesothelioma and who seek legal redress in New York State.
Lipsitz & Ponterio’s Carpenters and Mesothelioma website was implemented and designed by our in-house marketing team. We encourage you to visit this helpful new site at http://www.mesotheliomacarpenter.com.
