Chicago Asbestos and Mesothelioma Attorneys
Cook County and Lake County Lawyers Serving Clients Diagnosed with Mesothelioma
In many potentially hazardous situations, the cause of an injury is clear. For example, a driver understands that he or she may be injured by the actions or negligence of other drivers. In other situations, however, dangers may not be as apparent, such as exposure to dangerous building materials like asbestos.
At Pullano Law Offices, our attorneys realize the effects that a mesothelioma diagnosis due to asbestos exposure can have on a family. Mesothelioma is a serious illness that most commonly affects the lungs and chest of affected patients, requiring aggressive treatment and leading to a lifetime of health-related challenges. Even with the best available care, the prognosis for most victims is poor, and untimely death is often likely. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma as the result of exposure to asbestos, our attorneys are prepared to help you seek full justice.
Kane and Will Counties Mesothelioma Attorneys
Malignant mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that is almost universally attributed to the continued inhalation or ingestion of asbestos fibers. Due to its fire-retardant properties, asbestos was widely used in building materials, auto parts, adhesives, and hundreds of other applications for many years and is still used today in a number of industries. An estimated 11 million people have been exposed to asbestos since the 1940s, and every year, nearly 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma are reported. Most mesothelioma patients are former or current blue-collar workers or military veterans who were exposed to asbestos in the workplace over an extended period of time.
Companies utilizing asbestos sought to hide the truth regarding the carcinogenic characteristics of asbestos, and many workers labored for decades without realizing they were subjecting themselves to harm. Now, such companies may be held liable for the irreparable harm their actions caused to their workers’ lives.
