ASBESTOS EXPOSURE

Our comprehensive database can help prove your illness came from asbestos exposure

Weitz & Luxenberg will file claims for residents of the United States and Canada harmed by asbestos exposure from American-made asbestos products. Get a free copy of our sourcebook, "Mesothelioma, Lung Cancer, Asbestos Litigation And Your Rights."

Weitz & Luxenberg has decades of experience in obtaining large verdicts and settlements on behalf of thousands of plaintiffs. In that time, we developed a state-of-the-art Asbestos Exposure Database.

Your memory doesn’t have to be perfect. Our Exposure Database stores information taken from thousands of witnesses about job sites, the working conditions at those sites, names and locations of buildings (including new construction, renovation and demolition sites), co-workers at job sites, the companies that made or distributed asbestos products and the brand and trade names of asbestos products.

Can my doctor tell me if my diagnosis came from being exposed to asbestos?

Virtually everyone who is diagnosed with mesothelioma got sick because of their exposure to asbestos. The only way to contract asbestosis or mesothelioma is from inhaling asbestos dust and fibers over a long period of time. For asbestos-related lung cancer, your doctor will carefully review your job history and perform medical tests to confirm that your asbestos exposure caused you to develop lung cancer. Your smoking history is not a factor in proving that a diagnosis of mesothelioma or asbestosis came from asbestos exposure.

I worked with asbestos all my life and I know I’m sick. I don’t have the money to be tested. Can you help?

Part of our work in evaluating your case is to review all of your medical records. We often send clients for a medical examination and testing performed by a doctor who specializes in pulmonary medicine, and your x-rays will be reviewed by a specially qualified radiologist. These exams and tests are performed at no cost to you.

My husband worked with asbestos and now I’m sick. How did this happen?

“This risk from limited exposure was recognized many decades ago when reports of mesothelioma, from household exposures of spouses and children and neighborhood exposures from proximity to industrial plants, appeared in the medical and scientific literature. We have represented many such asbestos victims and the current findings bear out the extent of the continuing asbestos disaster.” -- Jerry Kristal, Weitz & Luxenberg asbestos trial attorney.

Our asbestos attorneys are committed to helping those diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis because of secondary or limited exposure to asbestos.

In such cases, they were exposed by their husband, father, or other family member. Our clients often tell us that their family members would come home “covered in dust” or had dust inside their cars. Family members breathed in the dangerous asbestos dust brought into their homes when washing work clothes, or even riding in the car. For secondary or limited exposure cases, there can be even more concern about proving your case.

We know you weren’t present at those job sites, but with the testimony of countless witnesses in our Exposure Database, we can help you prove what asbestos products were used at the job sites where your loved one worked.

What do I do now?

Weitz & Luxenberg is a leading plaintiffs' law firm that has represented people affected by mesothelioma for over 20 years. Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.
