If you or a loved one has mesothelioma, you may be entitled to benefits that will help pay your medical bills as well as compensation for the suffering endured. The NYC mesothelioma attorneys at Kaplan Lawyers PC know that the illness is often acquired over time, most often from exposure to asbestos. Prolonged inhalation of dangerous materials sometimes manifests as mesothelioma, often in the pleura. The sad truth is that, for a long time, builders were unaware of the danger of asbestos. Workers involved in demolitions, tunnel-making, plumbing, mining, etc., even in the distant past, may have been exposed without their knowledge. Today the risks are known but workers continue to face exposure to the substance and the sickness it will cause. If you believe that your mesothelioma was caused by on-the-job exposure to hazardous materials, contact Kaplan Lawyers PC. We will evaluate your claim and help guide you through the legal process.
