Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

DC Asbestos LawyerA DC asbestos lawyer is a personal injury lawyer that specializes in helping people who have been diagnosed with any of the many diseases and conditions that are often the result of being around exposed asbestos. The three most documented forms of problems from asbestos exposure are lung cancer, mesothelioma (a malignant tumor of the covering of the lung or the lining of them pleural and abdominal cavities), and asbestosis (a lung disease).

Starting at the beginning of the 20th century, asbestos was heralded as a wonder material for building and construction, protective clothing, friction-creating devices, and insulation. It was used to build high end buildings and the most modern and advanced factories. As victims of the health problems that are caused by asbestos exposure continue to come forth to seek recompense for their problems and the devastating effects of this are now more commonly understood, the legal arena has become more accomodating for those who are afflicted with asbestos related diseases, illnesses and other health problems.

Asbestos

Asbestos is a set of six naturally occurring silicate minerals and humans have been mining for it more than 4,000 years ago. Some of its physical properties that made it popular for building are its good sound absorption, average tensile strength, affordability, and resistance to fire, heat, and electricity. Asbestos use grew throughout the 20th century until public knowledge of the hazards of exposed and agitated asbestos causing major health problems, and court legislature, had it banned from being used in mainstream construction and fireproofing in most countries.

In this day and age, the problems that exposure to asbestos and breathing asbestos dust and particles can cause are well-known. In addition to the major problems mentioned above ((lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis) people who are exposed to the material for an extensive period of time may be susceptible to an array of other serious medical issues. Some of these include lung diseases, other cancers, heart and circulation issues, a weakened immune system, and the increased possibility of a stroke or heart attack.

Asbestos is not especially harmful if it is undisturbed but when it is, many of the diseases that it causes ultimately wind up killing those afflicted with them. Asbestos is still used in everyday items such as vehicle brakes and some building supplies. It is now only (legally) used in ways that will not be exposed to people nor will it hurt the people who use things that contain it.

If you or a loved one is suffering because of a sickness or problem related to asbestos exposure, you may find it helpful to talk to a personal injury lawyer who has experience in successfully defending the rights of asbestos exposure victims. The devastating effects that these kinds of health problems can have on a person and those who care about them can be physically difficult for the patient and those taking care of them, as well as emotionally exhausting. When people fall victim to the dangers of asbestos, they may be eligible for compensation.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
