Champaign Mesothelioma Attorney
Injured by Exposure to Asbestos or Other Environmental Hazards?
Workers exposed to asbestos in the course of their employment are vulnerable to developing mesothelioma, a form of lung cancer that can spread to other parts of the body. People usually develop this fatal disease as a result of exposure to asbestos on the job. Construction workers, miners, employees of asbestos manufacturers and people working in the shipbuilding industry often have been exposed to asbestos. When the disease strikes, people face significant medical bills, disability and death. Exposure to other hazards, such as benzene, welding torches, pesticides or other disease-causing materials often results in equally serious illness or death.
How Our Attorneys Can Help
The attorneys at Frederick & Hagle help workers who were made sick by the inhalation of asbestos fibers recover the compensation they need during terrible times. Individuals with mesothelioma often undergo painful medical treatments, are unable to work and have little hope of a cure. In addition, they are often anxious about the future of their families – they know they will not be able to provide for them in the coming months and years. Our attorneys seek compensation for current medical expenses and the ongoing costs of a disability. We also file suit to obtain payment for lost income, both now and in the future. We don’t give up – we will take a case as far as necessary to get the most favorable outcome.
Advice to People With Mesothelioma and Other Environmental Diseases
If you suspect that you have been exposed to asbestos, tell your doctor. Symptoms of mesothelioma typically appear years or decades after exposure. Not only can you get medical treatment that can make you more comfortable, but you are building a documentary record that can strengthen your case. And early treatment may extend your life.
