Recently, Mogab and Hughes Attorneys won $2.8 Million for a retired engineer who developed mesothelioma after exposure to asbestos at work.
Representing Injured Victims In Missouri Mesothelioma – Asbestos Cases
Since the early 1940’s millions of construction and manufacturer workers have been exposed to asbestos dust from working with asbestos-laden parts, ceilings, or insulation. Sadly, some of their family members may have also been exposed by inhaling asbestos particles from their contaminated clothing.
Asbestos particles get into the lungs and can trigger deadly diseases like:
- lung cancer
- mesothelioma – a particularly aggressive cancer striking the protective lining covering many of the body’s organs.
- asbestosis – a breathing disorder caused by inhaling asbestos fibers. Prolonged accumulation of these fibers in your lungs can cause scarring of lung tissue and shortness of breath.
It may take 10 to 40 years for symptoms of an asbestos-related condition to appear. Workers with mesothelioma have been harmed by corporations who manufactured, sold, installed or exposed workers to asbestos products. At the present time workers injured by mesothelioma may file a claim against their employer and others in the Circuit Court of Missouri seeking unrestricted damages. This law has been changed by the legislature under certain circumstances and may change effective January 1, 2014 if signed by the Governor. We suggest you contact an attorney immediately to determine the status of the law.
