This year, thousands of Americans will be diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. As union workers, you and your family have a higher risk of exposure.
The sad truth is companies knew about the dangers of asbestos exposure, but failed to warn their workers. After a latency period of 20 to 50 years, union workers are now developing mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. In many cases, their family members are falling ill due to asbestos exposures that occurred when workers brought the dust home on their clothes and skin.
Many American workers have been led to believe that asbestos is no longer a threat and that, if you become sick, you likely don’t have no medical or legal options. That’s simply not true. Sokolove Law represents union members and their families throughout the United States.
Who is at Risk?
Asbestos was used in thousands of products at job sites throughout the United States. Bricklayers, cement masons, steelworkers, carpenters and other union trades were unnecessarily put at risk.
What Can You Do?
Asbestos-related cancer is a unique medical and legal matter. Be upfront with your doctor about your history of asbestos exposure and the possible risks, especially if you develop the following symptoms: persistent cough, weight-loss and shortness of breath. These could be signs of mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease.
If you are sick, put the resources and the results of Sokolove Law on your side. We have seen the effects of asbestos diseases firsthand and will give you and your family the respect and personal attention you deserve.
