Asbestos And Mesothelioma
Asbestos is a dangerous material that was used in many industries in the 20th century. People who worked in various industrial, commercial and residential occupations were exposed to asbestos and inhaled the thin fiber composing asbestos. It is not uncommon for people who were exposed to develop mesothelioma in the years and decades after exposure.
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the thin membranes that line the lungs, chest and abdomen. The cancer can spread quickly to other body parts and is terminal.
The Heinrich Law Office represents people in and around Geneva, Illinois, who have received a mesothelioma diagnosis. Personal injury lawyer Paul Heinrich has almost 30 years of legal experience and has developed methods for establishing how mesothelioma was first contracted. This is important in asbestos and mesothelioma cases, because in many diagnoses, the individual is retired or was exposed to asbestos decades earlier.
Have You Or A Family Member Been Diagnosed With Mesothelioma?
Malignant mesothelioma attacks the lungs for those with pleural mesothelioma or the abdomen for those with peritoneal mesothelioma. The diagnosis can be shocking and overwhelming. Our law firm helps clients from a range of industries who were exposed to asbestos and later developed mesothelioma. We commonly represent the following types of workers:
- HVAC workers — heating, ventilating and air conditioning
- Military personnel
- Factory workers
- Construction workers
- Shipyard workers
It is also possible for family members — such as a spouse who laundered the worker's clothing — to be exposed to the asbestos fibers and develop mesothelioma cancer. We are dedicated to helping all family members who have been affected by mesothelioma and work diligently to trace the cause to the correct party. A mesothelioma diagnosis does not have a positive prognosis. Your family's loss does not have to go unnoticed in the eyes of the law. Our law firm is here to help you obtain justice and compensation for your economic and noneconomic losses.
