If you or a family member have been diagnosed with any of the asbestos exposure-related diseases, mesothelioma, asbestosis, or lung cancer, your life and that of your family has just been changed forever. Your primary concern should be to understand the treatments and the options available and the financial remedy that should be yours to claim, since all of the asbestos manufacturers and many industries knew of the dangers of asbestos exposure to their workers but put profits ahead of safety.
The metropolitan area of Tampa and the surrounding cities of St Petersburg, Clearwater, and Lakeland have grown in popularity over the past years, with a tremendous influx of new residents settling from all different parts of the United States. Many of these workers were employed in industries where asbestos and asbestos products were used, industries like shipbuilding, naval employment, mining, power and paper plants, manufacturing, and the automotive industry. Unfortunately, protective measures were not in force during most of the times asbestos was widely used, and consequently, many workers ingested asbestos dust particles into the lungs and stomach cavities. These particles lay dormant for many years until their deadly effects created diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and related maladies.
Asbestos Exposure and Compensation
At Terrell Hogan, we understand if you become ill, due to asbestos contamination that this is a very difficult time for you, which is why we would like to help ensure your family’s future financial security. Asbestos is a deadly toxin that has wreaked havoc on millions of unsuspecting families throughout the United States and especially in Florida.
For the residents of Tampa, this means many retired workers from the mining and manufacturing industries, naval yards and shipping building, construction, and automotive industries have decided to settle here in the twilight of their years. Workers who thought their workplaces were safe havens to make a living and retire in comfort to live out their golden years, enjoying life to the fullest. That dream, of unfulfilled expectations, is now a thing of the past and families who suffer from these avoidable diseases deserve to be compensated for their injuries.
It is important to understand that not everyone who has come into contact with asbestos particles, dust, or fibers actually worked in an industry where asbestos was used. Many were family members of workers who were exposed to a second-hand nature, brought in on clothing and work garments. They became exposed and were contaminated by asbestos particles only to reveal itself years later with illnesses related to that exposure. If you suspect you are the victim of second-hand exposure, please give us a call to discuss your options for treatment and financial restitution.
