Were you recently diagnosed with cancer related to asbestos exposure? Is a loved one dealing with a disease following a career working in a power plant or shipyard? Do you have questions about mesothelioma?
If you suffer from lung disease or lung cancer caused by asbestos, seek legal help in order to obtain the medical treatment and monetary compensation you and your family need.
Helping Those Suffering From Mesothelioma And Other Asbestos-Related Diseases
At Martin & Jones, our lawyers have been providing compassionate and skilled assistance to gravely ill people who suffer from exposure to asbestos.
It is not necessary for you to work directly with asbestos in order to become ill. Simply working near asbestos subjects you to the risk of mesothelioma — a cancer almost always caused by inhaling asbestos fibers — and other related diseases.
Many people who suffer from diseases related to asbestos may not recall when they were exposed to the deadly fibers. Symptoms often do not appear for years after exposure, causing many to overlook the relationship between their work and their diseases.
Power plant workers: Before the dangers became well-known, many workers were subject to exposure in power plants while working with products containing asbestos.
Shipyard employees: Until the 1970s, asbestos was used extensively on products used to build ships. The combination of exposure and poor ventilation created a very high risk of developing asbestos-related diseases among shipyard workers.
Timing Is Critical When Pursuing An Asbestos-Related Injury Claim
When it comes to asbestos-related injuries such as lung cancer and mesothelioma, timing is critical. Each state has statute of limitations laws that determine how long after the time of diagnosis a person or a family member can pursue an asbestos-related personal injury claim.
When hiring an asbestos attorney, it is important to find an attorney who knows how to successfully pursue these claims. If that attorney already has the evidence, you may be able to obtain a faster resolution. Having represented many individuals with lung cancer and other asbestos-related diseases, we have already gathered evidence on a number of asbestos exposure sites including those of DuPont and Babcock & Wilcox.
