Exposure to asbestos (a building material frequently used to make products stronger) can cause a number of lasting health issues, especially for workers that spent long periods of time working with or around it.
In particular, exposure to asbestos can cause mesothelioma, a form of cancer that affects the lungs. Mesothelioma has developed over the course of long careers, but can also result from briefer exposures (such as after a summer job). As recently as the 1970s, many industries used asbestos in their processes, exposing their workers to a number of health hazards. Studies have also found that second-hand exposure to asbestos can cause harm within households.
The attorneys of Maxwell Murphy work to get justice for our clients by fighting for compensation for them and their families.
If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, the attorneys of Maxwell Murphy can determine whether you have a case based on factors like:
- Duration of exposure
- Intensity of exposure
- Time since exposure
- Failure on the part of employer to warn employees
Due to statute of limitations imposed on asbestos cases, it’s critical that the sick or their families take action as soon as possible for compensation for their injuries.
