You have come to our firm to take a stand on an important issue. Weitz & Luxenberg has been taking that stand in court since 1986 - and obtaining large verdicts and settlements for asbestos-injured workers.
In a recent case, the lawyers of Weitz & Luxenberg secured a multimillion-dollar jury verdict against an auto giant on behalf of a New York City brake reliner who lost his right lung to mesothelioma.
The auto company had known about the dangers of asbestos since the 1930s. Tragically, however, the employer deceived its workers for decades by failing to inform them about the life-threatening nature of asbestos, a known carcinogen.
Our client's illness was entirely avoidable and our top-notch Asbestos Litigation team was able to prove as much.
Sadly, this case is one of thousands that Weitz & Luxenberg asbestos lawyers have brought to court on behalf of those whose lives have been upended by asbestos.
Many construction workers were exposed to asbestos on a daily basis and were unaware of the lethal dangers, said an asbestos construction lawyer at the firm. The daily toll from asbestos dust exposure is 30 deaths in the U.S., and that rate is expected to increase, according to the Environmental Working Group.
Workers who are ill with asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis are hardworking people just like you. People who worked in industries such as motor vehicle production and repair, construction and the textiles industry.
These are people whose families have been robbed of financial security while companies that made, distributed and used asbestos, profited.
Who can fight for these people?
On behalf of those harmed, the asbestos lawyers of Weitz & Luxenberg have filed thousands of cases to help provide financial security, access to medical care and dignity. Weitz & Luxenberg has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for clients.
What if I don't see a multi-million dollar verdict?
The asbestos lawyers at our firm have succeeded in securing millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements. Beyond those million-dollar awards, still tens of thousands of clients have been able to recover lesser sums but nonetheless money that helps pay for substantial portions of medical costs and other related expenses. Our asbestos lawyers have even obtained financial awards from asbestos companies that were bankrupt.
