Asbestos & Mesothelioma

Asbestos lawsuits and mesothelioma claims

Manufacturers of asbestos knew for decades that asbestos causes lung cancer. Internal documents obtained from lawsuits show the companies participated in a conspiracy to hide the serious dangers of asbestos exposure from the public to protect their own profits.

The result of this conspiracy is an epidemic of staggering proportions: today asbestos kills thousands more people than skin cancer each year, and nearly the number that are slain in assaults with firearms. The best estimates for asbestos-caused lung cancer deaths over the past two decades range from 5,000 to 10,000 per year (AIA 1980, Nicholson 1982), accounting for between 100,000 and 200,000 fatalities during that time. It is estimated that there will be over 100,000 asbestos related deaths in the next decade.

The Seattle, Washington law firm of Paglialunga & Harris, PS strongly believes that workers and their families deserve compensation to help them manage the severe and often fatal health consequences of working with asbestos. Please contact us by phone or online for a free case evaluation.
