Gain Compensation From Your Exposure

Recovery to pay medical bills

 

When a loved one falls ill from toxic asbestos exposure, and develops a deadly disease, the entire family suffers, and may experience great emotional and financial hardship as a result of outstanding medical expenses and a permanent loss of wages. This is the case for thousands of Americans each year who lose a family member to mesothelioma and other asbestos-related illnesses.

According to the American Cancer Society, each year in the United States around 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed. These new cancer cases cause an immense amount of pain and suffering, and even though asbestos is not as widely used in American industry as it once was, new cancer cases continue to surface because the latency period of toxic asbestos fibers in the lungs causing cancer can be as long as 40 years.

Even today, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that more than 100,000 people die each year from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related disease, resulting from past occupational exposures. Evidence suggests there is no safe level of asbestos exposure.

Family members who have suffered along with the asbestos victim may be entitled to compensation and may have a rightful claim against an employer for negligence and failing to provide a safe work environment for injured employees.

Joe Lyon is a highly-rated Cincinnati Asbestos lawyer representing plaintiffs nationwide in a wide variety of toxic tort, electrician asbestos exposure and mesothelioma claims. Contact an experienced attorney if a family member developed a deadly disease from electrician asbestos exposure.

Asbestos was still used for decades after medical experts discovered the deadly effects on the human body for those regularly exposed. Many of the following types of jobs exposed Ohio workers to toxic asbestos in the last 80 years:

Surviving family members may seek benefits through established asbestos bankruptcy trusts, or through civil asbestos claims aimed at the companies responsible for exposing workers to toxic asbestos fibers for many years.

Asbestos wrongful death lawsuits can recover millions of dollars for families who suffered a great loss, help pay for medical expenses, and help rebuild a life after the wrongful death of a loved one.

If a spouse or family member died due to electrician asbestos exposure in the workplace, you are entitled to take legal action and seek compensation. You should contact an experienced attorney, and should not be intimidated by filing a claim against a corporation.

If any company contributed to the death of a family member, the company should be held accountable. Asbestos settlements can follow a diagnosis of mesothelioma, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer or asbestosis.

Questions about Asbestos

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was first utilized in the early 1900s for its insulating abilities, fireproof properties, and versatility. It has been estimated that over 30 million tons of asbestos was used in the American economy in industrial yards, homes, schools, shipyards, and other workplaces.

The natural breakdown of asbestos products and subsequent sawing or cutting of the asbestos creates dust and fibers that are inhaled and can lead to mesothelioma and other severe forms of lung cancer.

Why is Asbestos Toxic?

When asbestos breaks down over time or with use, the fibers of the material can become airborne, presenting a risk of inhaling or ingesting the toxin. Asbestos is a cancer-causing agent, and those heavily exposed can develop scarring in the lungs and later develop lug cancer and mesothelioma.

What Materials Contain Asbestos?

Asbestos was widely used in piping, insulation, electrical components, machine parts, packaging, flooring, ceiling tiles, roofing, and in many building materials.

Can I File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?

If you were exposed to asbestos at your workplace, and have developed cancer or a related illness, you are likely to qualify for compensation.
