Bordas & Bordas has handled a wide variety of toxic tort cases, particularly those involving exposure to cancer-causing asbestos. Among the cancers asbestos can cause is a rare form, known as mesothelioma which develops in the cells of the protective lining that covers many of the internal organs of the body including the lungs, abdomen and heart.
Asbestos has been widely used in many industrial products, including electrical wiring, cement, brake linings, gaskets, roof shingles, flooring products, textiles, and insulation. Although banned in much of the developed world, asbestos is still being used in the United States construction industry today. Most people who developed any type of mesothelioma injury have worked in jobs where they inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers, or were exposed to airborne asbestos dust and fibers in other ways. Shipyard and automotive workers, producers of asbestos products, workers in the heating and construction industries, carpenters and other tradespeople can all be at risk for developing mesothelioma as a result of working in and around asbestos. Oftentimes, workers would unknowingly bring home asbestos fibers or their work clothes and, tragically, family members who interacted with spouses, parents, grandparents, siblings or others who worked in and around asbestos are also at risk for the development of mesothelioma.
Have You Been Diagnosed with Mesothelioma?
The link between asbestos exposure and the development of mesothelioma has been known since the end of the 19th century, but asbestos manufacturers and suppliers turned a blind eye and refused to implement safety measures for decades after learning about the deadly nature of asbestos. Bordas & Bordas has a significant track record of obtaining favorable results against companies that exposed their workers and their families to the hazards of asbestos.
If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it is important to pursue all avenues of compensation for yourself and your loved ones. To do that requires extensive investigation into the sources of exposure to asbestos, which can only be accomplished through an experienced firm like Bordas & Bordas. Our lawyers will work with you personally to help you obtain full and fair compensation so you can continue to pay your bills, provide for your loved ones and obtain peace of mind.
