Approximately 3,500 people per year suffer from mesothelioma, a form of cancer that attacks the internal linings of the lungs. The principal cause of the disease is asbestos exposure. The majority of individuals who have been exposed to asbestos encountered the asbestos mineral while working, where there were often inadequate safety precautions. Our Allentown asbestos lawyers are here to help.
Asbestos has been used in countless industrial products including ceiling and floor tiles, cement, paper products, roofing shingles, auto brakes and packaging materials. There is a latency period of up to 50 years between the initial asbestos exposure period and the actual diagnosis of cancer. The Allentown mesothelioma lawyers at the Trapani Law Firm are here to represent you and your family so you can focus on your treatment.
At greatest risk are individuals, commonly older gentlemen, who were employed in steel mills, factories, shipyards and other plants. Also, people who worked with brake linings, floor tiles or fireproof mitts may be at risk.
Currently, there is nearly $30 billion in asbestos trust funds, set up for those individuals who have been diagnosed with asbestos related illness, such as mesothelioma. Our Allentown mesothelioma attorneys will help insure fair and just financial compensation.
Sadly, mesothelioma is deadly. The average survival time from the date of diagnoses is approximately one year. Unfortunately, many actions are brought as wrongful death cases on behalf of the surviving family. If you have lost a loved one to mesothelioma, please do not hesitate to call our Allentown asbestos attorneys for a free consultation. We are here to help guide you and your family through the asbestos lawsuit process.
