Washington, DC, June 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "After speaking with countless automotive manufacturing workers, we think that one of the grittiest jobs there was in the 1960s and 1970s for US citizens was replacing auto brakes and clutches. This is especially true if talking about a garage or repair facility that specialized in these types of repairs, not only because the grime, grease, or dirt, but because of the asbestos exposure. Every time the repair person removed or installed a new set of disc brakes or clutch, they were breathing in asbestos fibers.
"Workers who worked on an auto assembly line involving auto disc brakes, clutches, or automatic transmissions probably had the same type of exposure—or even worse. In one instance, we talked to a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma whose coworkers at a Michigan auto plant used to use air hoses to blow the asbestos off of their work clothing at the end of their shift."
"We are incredibly passionate about making certain that diagnosed victims of mesothelioma get the best possible compensation and treatment options for this rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. This is especially true if their exposure took place in an auto, or truck manufacturing plant, or as a mechanic working in a clutch, brake, or transmission repair shop.
"The way we make certain the diagnosed victim gets the best compensation is to ensure they have the nation's most skilled lawyers."
