According to the U.S. Office of Compliance, asbestos is the number-one cause of occupational cancer, including malignant mesothelioma, leading to 54 percent of those deaths. Since 1979, more than 43,000 Americans have died of asbestos-related diseases. New York alone is ranked fourth in the country for deaths from malignant mesothelioma cases.
What’s tragic about most of these deaths is that they were preventable. Workers typically become ill because of inhaling dangerous particles in the work place. Companies and contractors may have been negligent in protecting the safety of their workers, or may have knowingly exposed workers to health hazards.
Individuals suffering from asbestos-related diseases may benefit from a free consultation with asbestos lawyers in New York. The Sanders Firm knows the devastating impact of mesothelioma on New Yorkers, and is passionate about winning personal injury lawsuits for the victims and families of those exposed.
