Questions for an Asbestos Lawyer Washington DC Victims Might Ask When Looking for Representation

The lawyers on staff at Cohen & Cohen have represented numerous victims of asbestos exposure and are available to help you as well. Call us to request a free consultation with one of our attorneys to discuss your case. In advance of seeking legal advice, here is some information that may be helpful to you:

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is the name given to a group of naturally occurring minerals whose fibers are used in the manufacture of many products. Asbestos fibers are resistant to electricity, fire, and heat which is why is has been used in materials such as roofing, insulation, fireproofing, and even brake pads.

Is Asbestos Dangerous?

Generally speaking, asbestos is not dangerous unless the fibers are released into the air and inhaled. The problem is that when a product manufactured with asbestos is damaged in some way, the fibers may get exposed and become airborne. An asbestos lawyer Washington DC victims have hired as representation may tell you that injuries as a result of asbestos exposure are not uncommon. Here is how they can happen:

  1. Drywall may contain asbestos, particularly in older buildings. A drywaller or demolition worker may have to remove or replace drywall. If it is already damaged, it may be releasing asbestos. In removing it, the asbestos may become airborne and breathed in by the worker. Continued exposure may lead to serious health issues at which point it may be advantageous to contact an asbestos lawyer Washington DC residents trust.
  2. The National Cancer Institute reports that though asbestos-related health issues are usually associated with individuals who have long term and repeated exposure to asbestos, it is not always the case. After a brief exposure to asbestos fibers, symptoms of asbestos-related diseases may not present themselves for another 10-40 years. Though you may have been exposed to asbestos many years ago, that should not deter you from discussing your case with an attorney.

What Are the Harmful Affects of Asbestos?

Prolonged or repeated exposure to asbestos can result in a number of health risks. When the asbestos fibers are breathed in, they embed themselves in the lungs. When they accumulate, they can cause difficulty in breathing, and in some cases can lead to lung cancer. An asbestos lawyer in Washington DC may recommend that if you have not already sought medical care for your condition that you do so. Your attorney at Cohen & Cohen may be able to recommend a healthcare specialist with experience in treating victims of asbestos exposure.

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.
