As working environments continually improve in the construction and allied trades, more workers are aware of the risks of asbestos exposure. Every year in the U.S., there are still 2,500-3,000 mesothelioma diagnoses that affect union workers, spouses, and families. In return, the detrimental effect of asbestos exposure can take decades to unveil. Local 2 strives to raise awareness and research funds to combat the effects and incurable symptoms of Mesothelioma and to find a cure through its annual walk/run, Move for Mesothelioma, now in a virtual format for 2021. Thanks to Local 2 members, friends, family, and giving sponsors, this year’s race fundraised over 1k dollars in community support.
Sponsors for the Insulators Local #2 Move for Mesothelioma, Caroselli Beachler & Coleman, LLC launched its firm in 1972 and focuses on an array of specialized cases from personal injury, workers’ compensation, social security disability, medical malpractice, and asbestos cancer & mesothelioma. Notably, the law firm was one of the first to file a lawsuit against asbestos manufacturers. Throughout the past 45 years of existence, the law firm helps to protect Insulators Local #2 members and other workers navigate the challenges of proving asbestos exposure by examining each unique case.
Craig Coleman, partner at Caroselli Beachler & Coleman, says, “We support numerous activities, including 5k walks sponsored by Local 2, to raise awareness of the harmful effects of asbestos exposure to the hard-working workers, spouses, and their families.”
Insulators Local #2 is proud to have proactive partnerships and uplifting relationships to help all those in need.
