Mesothelioma is a cancer linked to products containing potentially deadly asbestos, which continues to be widely present in numerous industries despite its well-known dangers. An estimated 3,000 Americans unknowingly exposed to asbestos fibers or dust are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year.
Unfortunately, their outlook is bleak; many fail to live beyond 2 years after diagnosis. If you lost a loved one to mesothelioma or you yourself are struggling after a diagnosis, please call (800) 361-0430 as soon as possible to begin building your case. Kalfus & Nachman has extensive experience with asbestos claims, and we approach each one with the sensitivity and diligence it deserves.
Legacy of Neglect
Perhaps the saddest aspect of any mesothelioma illness is that exposure could have been avoided if the liable party had taken responsibility to remove the asbestos safely. A distressingly high number of companies and agencies are aware of the risks associated with exposure to asbestos fibers or dust, yet knowingly chose to procrastinate on removing this toxin from their environment.
This willful neglect of duty slowly affects people in many lines of work, including:
- Manufacturing and fitting asbestos based products such as insulation materials
- Brake and clutch factories
- Shipbuilding and repair
- Construction industries
Also at risk are:
- Individuals who spend time in schools and hospitals where asbestos has not been removed
- Individuals who come into contact with the clothing of an exposed person
- Residents of locales with asbestos based industries
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be able to file a claim for compensation to:
- Cover medical bills and other care-related costs
- Access the best medical treatment, or palliative care
- Compensate for lost wages
- Offer some future security
Of course, nothing can ever reflect the true cost of what you have lost due to this terrible disease, but knowing that your family will not be financially devastated is often of great comfort at such a difficult time.
