Industrial Hazards to Health
The manufacturing industry is a major employer in Alexandria, but as in many industrial situations there can be a risk of exposure to hazardous substances, such as asbestos.
Scientific studies indicate a strong link between long-term exposure to asbestos and development of mesothelioma, a type of cancer affecting the lungs. At risk are workers in ship construction and repair, factories, construction sites and automotive construction sites which are known for harboring asbestos materials.
Claiming damages for mesothelioma injury in court can be a challenge as owners and insurers of manufacturing plants and sites are typically company giants who resist claims for compensation and deny asbestos exposure. If you or a loved one has developed mesothelioma due to long-term asbestos exposure, a personal injury attorney can help you establish your claim and represent you in court proceedings, with the aim of obtaining fair compensation for your injuries.
