We are pleased to announce the launch of two new websites: Plastics and Mesothelioma, located at www.asbestosplastic.com and Carpenters and Mesothelioma, located at www.mesotheliomacarpenter.com. Lipsitz & Ponterio’s two new websites offer information regarding asbestos exposure in the plastics industry and construction trades.

Plastics and Mesothelioma serves as a niche website for workers who manufactured plastic molding compounds, as well as those who converted plastic molding compounds into hardened plastic products. As recently as the mid-1980’s, asbestos was commonly used as a filler material in plastic molding compounds. This website offers information regarding asbestos exposure during the transportation and delivery of asbestos-containing plastic molding compound, as well as an interactive map and list of plastic molding compound manufacturers and plastic mold shops throughout the United States.

Carpenters and Mesothelioma is a user-friendly website offering valuable legal information for carpenters diagnosed with mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. Among the construction trades, carpenters have one of the highest incidence rates for developing mesothelioma. Before warnings were placed on asbestos-containing products in the late 1970’s, carpenters who worked in construction or home remodeling were exposed to asbestos through the application and removal of hundreds of different building products. This website provides a comprehensive list of building products that contained asbestos and videos featuring carpenters describing their exposure to asbestos through the application and removal of asbestos-containing materials.

Lipsitz & Ponterio created these two websites to provide workers with valuable technical and legal information about exposure to asbestos and the development of asbestos-related diseases. Both Plastics and Mesothelioma and Carpenters and Mesothelioma were designed and implemented by our in-house marketing team. We encourage you to visit these helpful new websites, www.asbestosplastic.com and www.mesotheliomacarpenter.com. If you have any questions regarding our firm or our two new websites, please let us know by filling out the contact form located on each respective website or by calling our office at (716) 849-0701 or toll-free at (866) 238-1452.
