ATTORNEY LAWYER MESOTHELIOMA
Weitz & Luxenberg will represent your best interests and seek the maximum compensation you are entitled to
October 5, 2010 – Every attorney and lawyer working for Weitz & Luxenberg is proud of the firm’s reputation for providing effective mesothelioma legal support for workers diagnosed with job-related asbestos disease.
We are the largest mass tort plaintiffs’ law firm in New York specializing in asbestos-injury litigation.
In the last 25 years, Weitz & Luxenberg has grown into a national legal force recognized coast to coast for obtaining record-setting multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for workers diagnosed with asbestos-caused diseases, including mesothelioma and lung cancer.
Mesothelioma is a preventable cancer
Thousands of retirement-aged workers from such industries as construction, automobile, plumbing and heating systems repair are caught off guard every year when they are told the work they did decades ago has resulted today in a very serious diagnosis of asbestos-related cancer, like mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is known the world over as the signature asbestos-related cancer. According to a mesothelioma cancer attorney with our firm, approximately 3,000 cases of the disease are diagnosed each year in the United States, and nearly each case was preventable.
That’s because mesothelioma is the result of occupational asbestos exposure, commonly caused by the negligence of employers and asbestos product manufacturers who knew of the health dangers of their products, but deliberately chose fast corporate profits over the expense of safe working conditions.
If you worked professionally with asbestos-based products any time in the past, and have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness, you may be eligible for financial compensation under the law.
Strong track record of success
Over the years, thousands of our asbestos-injured clients have received significant financial awards with legal representation from our law firm. Last year, for example, Weitz & Luxenberg obtained a $2.16-million settlement for the family of a New York City construction worker who died of mesothelioma.
In 2008, our lawyers and attorneys obtained $16.25 million in a lawsuit involving the first successful asbestos verdict against a dental supply company responsible for manufacturing asbestos-based dental tape.
And in 2007, Weitz & Luxenberg secured a $37-million verdict in two related cases of asbestos-caused lung cancer.
As these verdicts prove, courts recognize the culpability of employers and product manufacturers who put corporate profits ahead of worker health safety.
