MO: Useful Services For Our Veterans
There are a number of facilities that have been instituted for veterans of the United States armed forces. An updated list of the help centers in Missouri is located here.
Weitz & Luxenberg is known for spearheading asbestos cases, having won a notable consolidated trial in 1991 involving employees of the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s.
We have had 36 clients in that case and secured $75 million. Another case yielded a $64.65 million award for four asbestos plaintiffs in 1996 (NY, docket # 10893/95), and, in 2002, the firm won a $53 million decision in New York for a brake mechanic suffering with mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). The Asbestos team has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the foundation of the victorious Allied war effort in World War II.
Asbestos is a mineral. It is composed of silicon, oxygen, hydrogen and other metals. Fibers made of asbestos are strong, flexible and flame retardant. Asbestos also insulates very well and won't break down easily. Asbestos has been used in older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. Generally, asbestos fibers are joined with a matter that bonds them together, leading to the creation of asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. Various industrial products are created with ACM, like sealants, cement pipe and insulation.
Large amounts of people worked in the armed services and had contact with asbestos for much of their lives without knowing that this could one day bring about the lethal disease: mesothelioma.
