Georgia mesothelioma lawyer Jonah Flynn was recently retained to represent the interests of the estate of a retired Dupont salesman who spent his career in and out of textile mills. Asbestos was heavily used in the manufacture of certain types of woven products, and much of what was made in textile mills from the 1940s to the 1970s was made with asbestos. This makes textile workers especially at risk of developing mesothelioma.
Asbestos exposure in textile mills occurred when raw asbestos was spun into yarn and then woven into woven products. There was also asbestos material in the textile mills themselves (i.e. asbestos pipe covering and insulation) which also can cause disease. Studies have shown that textile mill workers have significantly greater odds for developing asbestosis and mesothelioma.
