Mesothelioma – Wrongful Death Lawyers – Personal Injury

Mesothelioma is a rare, serious and aggressive cancer that normally occurs in the lungs and is conclusively linked to exposure to asbestos fibers. This exposure to asbestos fibers typically occurs in the workplace and is sometimes brought home on a worker’s clothes. Mesothelioma has an extended latency period – symptoms can sometimes take between 20-40 years to appear.
Barry & Loewy LLP represents individuals and their families who are suffering from mesothelioma and other health problems related to asbestos exposure. More information on this website: Https://fordandlaurel.compersonal i njury law

The following occupations present the highest risk for workers exposed to asbestos fibers and asbestos-containing products either direct or indirect handling, installing, removing or demolishing of asbestos insulation:
Construction Workers
Boiler Room Tenders
Maritime Mechanics
Shipyard Workers
Drywall Finishers
Iron Workers
Crane Operators
Factory Workers
Industrial Workers
Power Plant Workers
Paper Mill Workers
Refinery Workers
Steel Workers
Railroad workers

The companies that manufactured, sold and installed asbestos and asbestos products had extensive knowledge of the deadly hazards of asbestos as early as the 1920s. Yet these companies and corporations waited decades before providing warnings to workers and to the general public about the dangers and health hazards associated with exposure to asbestos products. In some cases, warnings were never provided. Ignoring the deadly risks associated with asbestos exposure, companies opted not to use known alternatives and instead continued to recklessly use asbestos through the 1980s. Consequently, workers and their families throughout the United States have unnecessarily and tragically suffered from asbestos exposure.
There is currently no known cure for mesothelioma. As the disease progresses, the cancerous cells harden the pleura and spread. As time passes, breathing, sleeping and eating become more difficult. It becomes increasingly more challenging for the victim to engage in normal activities and enjoy life.
A number of treatments are available to help contain the spread of the disease and reduce the pain associated with it. Chemotherapy, radiation and radical surgery to remove the lung and/or pleura are among the options that may be explored by the treating physician.
Unfortunately, many Americans have unnecessarily and tragically contracted asbestos-related diseases. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma or an asbestos-related disease, the attorneys of our firm will use every resource at their command to make sure you are compensated for this injustice.
If you or a loved one is suffering problems from asbestos exposure, please contact our office today.
