Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer?

If so, the law firm of Collins Gann McCloskey & Barry can help get you and your family the financial compensation you deserve.

Mesotheloma is an extremely rare cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a mineral fiber that was used in hundreds of residential and commercial products from the early 1900s through the early 1980s, including:

Construction

  • Floor tile
  • Sheet rock
  • Joint compound
  • Roof shingles
  • Siding
  • Insulation

Plumbing & Heating

  • Boilers
  • Furnaces
  • Pumps
  • Valves
  • Turbines
  • Compressors
  • Pipe Covering
  • Gaskets
  • Refractory Cement

Electrical

  • Panel boxes
  • Circuit beakers
  • Switches

Automotive

Because of its insulating properties, asbestos-containing materials were very popular aboard Navy ships, in Powerhouses, and in a number of other industries. As such, millions of men and women were exposed to deadly cancer-causing asbestos dust. Some of the most affected occupations were:

  • Navy Personnel
  • Boilermakers
  • Powerhouse Personnel
  • Steamfitters
  • Tin Knockers
  • Machinist Mates
  • Plasterers
  • Electricians
  • Insulators
  • Painters
  • Carpenters
  • Laborers
  • Auto Mechanics
  • Roofers
  • Tile Installers

To make matters worse, mountains of evidence exists that manufacturers of asbestos-containing products were aware of the dangerous, disease-causing effects of asbestos as early as the late 1800s, and never warned end users of their deadly products.

In addition to mesothelioma, studies have shown that exposure to asbestos greatly increases the risk of contracting lung cancer. Even if you smoked, you could still be entitled to financial compensation.
