Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
Mesothelioma is a potentially fatal disease that can lie dormant for years. Impacting people who have worked in and around asbestos materials, it is commonly seen in people who have worked in shipyards. Asbestos was commonly used in ships, and legal research has shown that the parties in charge of many shipyards were aware of the potential dangers decades ago. Families of people who are dealing with this dangerous disease can file suit to receive the care they need, and Shrader Law can help them.
Mesothelioma is difficult to treat, and the cost of medical care can be astronomical. As victims fight for their lives, the financial and emotional toll on their families can be intense. While it is impossible to turn back the clock and prevent the disease from occurring, the experienced team at Shrader Law can provide valuable legal counseling to victims and their families. With compensation from the companies at fault, the financial burden can be relieved, and that helps ease some of the emotional burden.
The experienced attorneys at Shrader Law know how difficult it is to be diagnosed with a deadly disease. They treat new clients and their families with respect and dignity. The attorneys want to help people get the financial compensation they need to help pay for care and other expenses, and they also want to make the process go more smoothly.
The dangers of asbestos were known long before this material was legally banned. In fact, there is evidence dating back to 1900 that authorities knew asbestos exposure would lead to lung cancer and other serious illnesses. Sadly, asbestos mining in the United States continued until 2002, and new buildings continued to use this material well into the 1970s. Shipyards are home to significant levels of asbestos, and that put shipyard workers at particularly high risk for this disease.
The hazard to people working near asbestos has been recognized or decades. Railroad, sheet metal, rubber, warehouse, boat, electrical, and demolition workers are at a high risk. However, even painters, ceiling workers, drywallers, custodians, and makers of heat-resistant clothing are at risk for this disease. One of the most frightening aspects of mesothelioma is that the condition can develop even in those with only secondary contact with asbestos. When workers came home with the dust on their clothes, their family members could breathe in the fibers and develop the disease. People living near asbestos mines or plants have also developed the disease.
Mesothelioma is a serious disease that is costly to treat and difficult to overcome. With abundant evidence showing that authorities knew the dangers of shipyard asbestos, Shrader Law can help many victims receive financial compensation to help them cover the cost of medical care.
