Nationwide Asbestos Exposure Lawyers in St. Louis
Mesothelioma is a serious cancer that occurs in people who have been exposed to asbestos. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you have either swallowed or inhaled asbestos fibers, and we would like to talk with you. If you have been exposed to asbestos and you feel sick, we can provide advice before you go to the doctor to see about a diagnosis of the illness.
At Brown & Crouppen, we know that people with mesothelioma have been harmed by the negligence of companies who manufactured, sold and installed asbestos products — oftentimes with extensive knowledge of the hazards asbestos contains. Some corporations had knowledge of this correlation since 1920, and yet, warnings were rarely provided to workers and to the general public.
The onset of mesothelioma is usually slow and may not appear until 30 to 50 years after initial exposure to asbestos.
Experienced Mesothelioma Attorneys
Each year in the United States, 2,500 to 4,000 patients are diagnosed with mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. In some of the worst cases, family members of workers in asbestos-filled factories will contract mesothelioma by doing laundry or simply by inhaling fibers off of their loved ones’ clothing. Since there is currently no cure, innocent victims can contract this disease, even though they did not work near asbestos during their lives.
Companies who chose to ignore health risks and knowingly exposed workers (and their families) deserve to be held accountable.
