ASBESTOS NEW YORK
Our Attorneys Have Won More New York Asbestos Verdicts Than Any Other Law Firm
Each year, our firm hears from thousands in New York who have become ill from asbestosis, mesothelioma or lung cancer from asbestos exposure.
We have been helping people in New York who have been harmed by asbestos since 1986, and winning verdicts and settlements on behalf of our asbestos clients.
Although the use of asbestos has decreased in New York since the 1980s, an asbestos construction lawyer at the firm confirms the material is still present in many building products and materials, including:
People are exposed by breathing in very small asbestos fibers. Asbestos fibers can be released into the air when asbestos-containing materials are damaged or disturbed.
Breathing in asbestos fibers over many years may result in serious diseases, such as lung cancer, digestive tract cancer, mesothelioma (a cancer in the lining of the lungs or abdomen), and/or asbestosis (lung scarring).
New York workers who have been exposed to asbestos for many years are most at risk for asbestos-related illnesses.
Construction, insulation, and shipyard workers who have installed, disturbed or removed asbestos without proper protection are especially at risk.
Smokers who are exposed to asbestos have a much greater risk of developing asbestos-related diseases.
Many New York workers have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
If this has been your experience, our asbestos lawyers may be able to help you receive compensation for your health problems.
For over two decades, Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. has handled some of the most legally complicated and groundbreaking asbestos litigation in the country, winning many millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements along the way.
Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure or secondary exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.
