New York Mesothelioma Lawyer
Suing a company responsible for causing asbestos exposure that led to cancer is something anyone in the state of New York can do if he or she has a valid case against that company.
A typical valid case looks like this: decades ago, the company made or distributed a product containing asbestos and the person who developed cancer somehow back then breathed or swallowed tiny dust particles from that product.
There was a time when asbestos products seemingly where everywhere in New York. That’s because asbestos is a cheap mineral with the ability to insulate against extreme high heat. It was used in brake systems, steam piping, fireproof materials, construction wallboard and more.
A great many Empire State residents came into contact with asbestos through their use or handling of those products. In many instances, they had no knowledge that they were being exposed. For example, a brake mechanic might come home from work with his garage uniform covered in asbestos dust. If he rode home aboard a bus, some of that dust might easily have shed from his uniform and floated freely within the confines of the bus interior, settling on the clothes of other passengers – or, worse, being inhaled.
Decades later, both the mechanic and the unfortunate soul who happened to sit next to him on the bus developed cancer.
And not just any cancer, but mesothelioma cancer – the most unstoppably deadly kind.
If you are – or think you are – a victim of asbestos exposure, you should immediately contact a physician to discuss your medical options.
If you are a mesothelioma cancer patient, you should immediately contact an attorney to discuss your legal options.
