Summer Employment -


For more information on asbestos and Durez Plastics, please visit In the following video, our client describes his exposure to asbestos while working as a laborer for three summers at Durez Plastics in North Tonawanda, New York. His job duties included sweeping and cleaning what was known as the varnish and compound rooms. Both of these areas contained pipes and reactors that were heavily insulated with asbestos insulation. Our client developed mesothelioma as a result of his relatively brief, but intense exposure to raw asbestos and asbestos-containing plastic molding compounds. What makes our client's case so significant, is the fact that he only worked for three summers (approximately 12 weeks a year, 8 hour shifts) at Durez. Duration and intensity of exposure are two important factors relative to mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. In the case of our client, intensity of exposure is what ultimately caused his mesothelioma since his exposure could not be traced to anywhere but Durez Plastics. Lipsitz & Ponterio, LLC mesothelioma lawyers will provide free consultation to victims of mesothelioma or lung cancer resulting from exposure to asbestos.
