For decades, asbestos was used as a component in automotive and aircraft brakes, clutches, and gaskets. As these materials wore down through normal use, asbestos dust was released and collected in the enclosed spaces around the clutch or in the brake housings. Mechanics changing these old asbestos parts had to clean out these spaces, often with an air hose, and when they did, countless asbestos fibers were released into the air.
Mechanics were unaware of the hazards of working with this dangerous mineral, but the manufacturers of these products knew of the potential harm their asbestos containing products could cause. The manufacturers chose to keep collecting their profits rather than warn of the danger of their cancer-causing products. The asbestos attorneys at Cory Watson have focused their law practice on holding these companies accountable for choosing profits over people.
