There will be a pulmonary screening for asbestos exposure. There are no out of pocket costs for the screening which should take only 10-15 minutes to complete. The screening will take place at UAW Local 652, 426 Clare Street, Lansing MI, 48917 on Monday May 4, 2020 and Tuesday May 5, 2020 for Local 652 members, and UAW Local 602, 2510 W. Michigan Ave, Lansing, MI, 48917 on Thursday May 7, 2020 and Friday May 8, 2020 for Local 602 members.
Accurate Medical Diagnostic will conduct the asbestos screening. The screening examination will consist of a chest x-ray and interpretation by a B-Reader physician certified to interpret x-rays for asbestos related diseases.
To qualify for this screening the following requirements must be met:
- You cannot have an asbestos case pending with any law firm.
- It must be at least 2 years since you were last screened for an asbestos related disease.
- You must have begun working (or if you served in the Navy) in 1979 or earlier and you must have 5 years of industrial exposure.
- You must call 1-888-839-8479 (Toll Free) to schedule an appointment with Sarah LaQuatra Ext. 1941 or Joe Ryzner Ext. 6974 during the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
There will be a representative from a Cleveland law firm, experienced in handling asbestos related cases, to consult with you in the event you have questions or concerns. Each participant in the screening will be given a written report from a qualified B-Reader physician shortly after the screening to advise you of your results. Members are under no obligation to sign on with any Law Firm and doing so is a member’s individual and personal choice.
If you have tested negative for an asbestos related disease in the past, it is very important that you be re-tested every 2-3 years.
