Mesothelioma and lawsuits: We have over 20 years of experience in securing
compensation for clients with cancer from asbestos.
Asbestos is well recognized as a health
hazard and the government regularly attempts to ensure those exposed to it on
the job are protected from contracting mesothelioma, other cancers and asbestosis. Still, those who
were exposed negligently decades ago, have a right to file a lawsuit.
Despite government regulations, an estimated 1.3 million employees in the construction and general
industry face significant asbestos exposure on the job, Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA) reports.
That organization says heaviest exposures occur in the construction industry,
particularly during the removal of asbestos during renovation or demolition.
Employees are also likely to be exposed during the manufacture of asbestos products (such as textiles, friction products, insulation, and other building materials) and
during automotive brake and clutch repair work.
Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. has helped people in those industries whose lives
have been greatly challenged by asbestos
diseases such as mesothelioma.
We have represented numerous families in lawsuits that have helped them
recover money to pay for medical bills, ensure the welfare of their families,
and take to task the negligent companies that have harmed hundreds of thousands
of Americans over time.
