Manhattan Mesothelioma Lawyer
Do you need to recover compensation for a mesothelioma diagnosis but aren’t sure where to start? A Manhattan mesothelioma attorney can help you get the most from your claim and determine who was responsible.
When you learn that you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you’ll want to know how it happened, what you’re supposed to do next, and how you’re going to afford the inevitable costs associated with treatment.
You deserve to be compensated for these costs, as well as how the cancer will impact your life—both professionally and personally. Obtaining this compensation is never simple, however.
To make things easier, your best option is to have an experienced Manhattan mesothelioma lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP represent you. A lawyer can determine when you were exposed to asbestos and who was responsible, which will allow you to recover the full compensation you are due.
About Mesothelioma and Asbestos Exposure
Mesothelioma is contracted from asbestos exposure, and while asbestos is mostly no longer used in building materials, people still come into contact with it, especially in older buildings.
Many people are exposed to asbestos thanks to handling hazardous materials for work, living or working in old buildings, and handling items that carry asbestos fibers.
Mesothelioma can dramatically impact your life, causing chest pain, breathing trouble, fatigue, loss of appetite, and nausea. While these symptoms may also be signs of other issues, they’re extremely common with mesothelioma and can get worse over time as the cancer spreads.
Medical science knows how mesothelioma is contracted, but it’s up to your lawyer to uncover who was responsible for your asbestos exposure.
Determining Fault for a Mesothelioma Diagnosis
As mentioned, there are many ways you could have been exposed to asbestos. Construction and demolition workers are at particularly high risk, for example.
Your Manhattan mesothelioma attorney will identify who was responsible for the exposure, no matter how long ago it took place:
- Your employer for knowingly putting you into a dangerous environment
- The manufacturer of the asbestos materials you were exposed to
- The owner of the building or residence you were working in for not warning you about the asbestos present on the premises
- The city, county, or state for allowing the building to stand without being inspected
- Inspectors, if they cut corners or didn’t properly report the asbestos
Compensation for Your Cancer Diagnosis
Your attorney will help you recover the full cost of your damages and losses from the party who caused your mesothelioma. Mesothelioma can only be managed—not cured. This means that your future needs should also be taken into consideration.
From financial losses to lost quality of life, we’ll help you fully assess the value of your claim so that you can recover the most compensation possible:
- Medical bills for checkups, procedures, medication, and equipment
- Lost income and earning ability
- Transportation expenses and home renovations
- Pain and suffering
- Lost companionship
- Emotional distress
- Lost enjoyment of life
