Asbestos & Mesothelioma: What You Don't Know Can Hurt You

If you or a family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos, we understand what you face and we know how to help. At Weitz & Luxenberg we are dedicated to serving those harmed by asbestos exposure.

The story of asbestos in our modern world is a lengthy saga of industrialization and hardworking people tragically impacted by the deadly qualities of the substance.

Asbestos in small amounts is widespread in our environment, exposing most of us minimally. However, excessive quantities found in many workplaces have triggered the devastating disease of mesothelioma and other diseases in many thousands of people since the late 1800s, when asbestos became a widely used component of manufactured products, including cement, insulation, pipes, brake pads, and ceiling and floor tiles, to name a few.

Employers that did not take appropriate action to protect workers despite their knowledge of the hazards can and will be held accountable, even decades later.

We Do Not Rest Until We Have Exhausted Every Avenue To Obtain A Level Of Compensation That Will Truly Make A Difference

At Weitz & Luxenberg, P.C., so-called ordinary people can count on a level playing field as they go up against huge corporations with armies of lawyers. We have immense respect for the hard workers who have built the vast infrastructure that has given our nation a high standard of living for generations.

In particular, factory workers, auto manufacturers, shipbuilders, construction workers and boiler room workers have been vulnerable to exposure to asbestos — resulting, in many cases, in premature deaths due to mesothelioma and other ailments.

We count it a privilege to represent many who have suffered and lost so much through lung cancer triggered by exposure to asbestos.
