What Should I Know About Asbestos Exposure at Allegheny Ludlum Worksites?

Allegheny Ludlum Corporation is one of the largest manufacturers of specialty steel and other metals and alloys in the U.S. Its principal product line is stainless steel, which makes up about 80 percent of its total sales. It is among the three largest producers of stainless steel and has a considerable presence in the U.S. 

In Brackenridge, PA, the company began with the name Allegheny Ludlum Steel Corporation (ALSC). In the early 1970s, it changed its name to Allegheny Ludlum Industries Inc. (ALI), to reflect its expansion into other specialty metals besides steel (such as titanium, nickel, and silicon-based alloys). It maintains operations in various locations besides Brackenridge.

Due to the nature of the products and operations at Allegheny Ludlum facilities, employees may have been exposed to asbestos during the course of their employment. This is particularly true of steel workers who worked during the earlier days at such job sites

Asbestos Risks for Metal Workers

Metal workers, especially steel workers who have worked at an Allegheny Ludlum, have been exposed to unique asbestos risks. Steel workers may have come into contact with asbestos through:

  • Cutting/sawing materials treated with asbestos
  • Welding metal sheets
  • Working with certain tools 
  • Removing metal items

These types of actions can disturb or release asbestos particles, potentially exposing the worker to high amounts of asbestos. When this is repeated over time, it presents a dangerous situation for the worker (and their families, as the worker may bring some particles home on their clothes).

What Injuries Are Associated with Asbestos Exposure at Allegheny Ludlum?

Exposure to asbestos at job sites like those maintained by Allegheny Ludlum have led to serious, long-term, and permanent injuries. These injuries include mesothelioma and various other forms of cancer

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that affects the mesothelium, a thin tissue that lines most of the body’s organs. It is caused by inhaling particles of asbestos. Mesothelioma is a severe and life-threatening disease.

Symptoms of mesothelioma include: 

  • Cough and other respiratory complications
  • Fever, chills, or night sweats
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fluid around the lungs
  • Muscular weakness

Besides mesothelioma, asbestos can cause other forms of cancer including:

  • Lung cancer
  • Laryngeal cancer of the larynx or “voice box”)
  • Throat cancer
  • Pharyngeal cancer (cancer of the cavity behind the nose/mouth)
  • Various other cancers like stomach, colon, or ovarian cancer

These are serious, life-changing medical conditions that require prompt and ongoing treatment. Left unattended, they can be life threatening. Contact us at (412) 851-6406 if you worked at Allegheny Ludlum and are experiencing any of these symptoms or were diagnosed with a serious disease.

What Does Compensation for Your Asbestos Related Disease Cover?

If you or a loved one has suffered any asbestos-related injuries in connection with employment at Allegheny Ludlum, you may be entitled to significant monetary compensation. This may help cover: 

  • Ongoing medical treatment
  • Costs of hospitalization and surgeries
  • Medical equipment and medications
  • Lost wages or employment opportunities
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of consortium in a marriage

These costs can add up quickly for the injured person and their family. Conventional insurance or workers compensation may not cover all of these expenses. In such cases, filing a lawsuit may be the only way to ensure full coverage of the costs. 

In cases where a person passed away due to asbestos exposure at work, a lawsuit may also cover costs associated with wrongful death
