Proven Advocates For Mesothelioma Sufferers And Surviving Family Members

Only a mesothelioma sufferer and his or her close family members truly understand the devastation of this disease to its full extent. However, experienced Manhattan lawyers at Weitz & Luxenberg, P.C., come very close to understanding. Our decades of experience and our formidable track record of successful outcomes have given us the knowledge, the tools and the credibility you seek as you look for a personal injury lawyer who can make a difference in your case.

Asbestos Exposure Is The Only Known Cause Of Mesothelioma

Were you exposed to asbestos in the course of your employment in mining, construction, shipbuilding or auto manufacturing? Did an employer know about asbestos exposure on the job, but fail to act to protect workers from it? Our New York law firm has obtained multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts for clients who developed mesothelioma under similar circumstances. Talk to us and learn how our asbestos attorneys can help you.

Do not let our large size give you the impression you will receive anything less than individualized representation when you work with Weitz & Luxenberg, P.C. We are fully staffed precisely so your lawyer and attentive law office personnel can give you the personal attention you need as we put our vast resources to work to obtain the best outcome achievable for your mesothelioma claim.

Indicators Of Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma most often manifests itself as a cancer of the lining of the lungs, but it may appear in other parts of the body where asbestos particles can become lodged and wreak havoc over time: the abdomen, the heart and, in rare cases, testicles.

Slow-spreading mesothelioma is more common than the fast-spreading version, but anyone who has been exposed to asbestos and demonstrates any of these symptoms should not rule out the disease until proven otherwise: difficulty breathing, painful coughing, chest pain, unusual weight loss, abdominal pain, lumps or swelling.

After Exposure To Asbestos And A Diagnosis Of Lung Cancer: Fight Back!

Once you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, your priorities will soon become clear:

  • Get the best quality medical care possible to maintain the highest possible quality of life for as long as you can. Our law firm fully supports you in your efforts to live as fully as you are able throughout your battle against mesothelioma and its effects.
  • Put in place legal protections that will guide your family through the phases that lie ahead: a health care directive and a well thought out estate plan.
  • Get the compensation you deserve. Work with a law firm that can help you identify when and where you were exposed to asbestos and file an injury claim or lawsuit likely to help you collect maximum obtainable damages. With adequate resources, you can pay for health care, replace lost wages and, eventually, leave your family a legacy of support.

Financial compensation cannot give you back the life you could have had without mesothelioma. However, it can help fund the medications, therapies, treatments and rest you will need to enjoy life as long as you can, as abundantly as you can.
