For many, the legal system can seem both intimidating and overwhelming. These feelings are only magnified when you or a loved one are struggling with an asbestos-related disease, or mourning the loss of a loved one from an asbestos–related disease. These asbestos-related diseases often strike long after the exposure occurred and the evidence has gone cold, and the victims of these diseases often get them through no fault of their own, sometimes without knowing they were ever exposed. That is why it is so important to work with an experienced, compassionate law firm like Goldenberg Heller & Antognoli, P.C. that not only understands what you are going through and will support you throughout the process, but can also help you achieve the best possible result as proven by our over 30 years in this field.
However, before you can begin to find that compassionate, experienced law firm, you first have to know if you or your loved one might have a legal claim. You have probably seen some of the commercials on T.V. about mesothelioma, a cancer linked to asbestos exposure, but you may not know that there are a number of other cancers and respiratory diseases that have also been linked to asbestos exposure. These diseases include, but are not limited to, lung cancer, colon cancer, and asbestosis. I will discuss these diseases in greater detail in later blog posts, but for now it is important to understand that mesothelioma is not the only asbestos-related disease for which you may be able to file a claim. I will also discuss how you or a loved one might have been exposed to asbestos, and whether things like having a history of smoking affects your case.
In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us here at Goldenberg Heller & Antognoli, P.C. if you do have any questions. We are a firm that prides ourselves not only on the results we achieve for our clients, but also the care and compassion we have for those suffering from these terrible diseases. We have been doing this now for over 30 years, and we are only a phone call away for a free consultation.
