Are you a longshoreman who has been diagnosed with an asbestos illness? We may be able to help you obtain a settlement.
You may be a longshoreman whose job entailed exposure to asbestos.
Many longshoremen across the country have told us they came in direct contact with asbestos while loading and unloading asbestos products from ships.
The materials they typically were exposed to have included asbestos–containing insulation and fireproofing materials.
This is because in decades past, these workers did not know about the health risks associated with asbestos.
As a result, few precautions were taken to prevent the inhalation of asbestos dust and fibers.
This, in turn, imperiled the health of those longshoremen.
If this has been your experience, we may be able to help.
For over two decades, Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. has handled some of the most legally complicated and groundbreaking asbestos litigation in the country. 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.
