Asbestos in Ingram: The Local Risks

Residents of Ingram, a small borough located just four miles west of Pittsburgh, recently experienced an asbestos exposure scare. When an apartment owner renovated his building, a local man noticed a beige-colored shingle he immediately identified as asbestos. The owner of the complex didn’t bother to have the property inspected before construction began, thus exposing the workers to the dangerous effects of the fibrous carcinogen. The Allegheny County Health Department considers the presence of asbestos at more than one percent high, and after analysis determined the shingles presented from the site consisted of 30 percent asbestos. More than 30 years ago, asbestos use...

RECENT RESULTS

We just resolved a trial group of 6 mesothelioma cases with great success. We obtained $1.4 million for a 69 year old glass plant worker; $1.75 million for an 80 year old steelworker; $2 million for a 77 year old aluminum plant worker and almost $3 million for a 69 year old boilermaker. Although we can’t guarantee these types of results in every case, you can see that our hard work really makes a difference in people’s lives.

PITTSBURGH CORNING BANKRUPTCY

You may have read in the paper or seen on the news that a federal bankruptcy judge in Pittsburgh has finally approved a bankruptcy plan for Pittsburgh Corning.

The result of these appeals is that 13 years after declaring bankruptcy, victims who were diagnosed with cancer after using Pittsburgh Corning’s products STILL haven’t been compensated. That situation is even more...

LUNG CANCER, SMOKING AND ASBESTOS

As a reminder, if you or someone you know has been diagnosed with lung cancer please contact us since we can most likely help. If the lung cancer victim worked in an industrial environment, even if he or she smoked, we can most likely file a claim. This is because smoking together with asbestos exposure is a deadly combination- people who smoked and who were exposed to asbestos are about 75 times more likely to get lung cancer than those who didn’t smoke and who weren’t exposed to asbestos. Even if the doctor tells you that the lung cancer was...

TIME LIMITS ON FILING A LAWSUIT

At least once a week we are contacted by someone whose loved one was diagnosed with lung cancer or mesothelioma more than 2 years ago and they want to know if we can help them. Unfortunately the answer is “no”. All states have time limits for filing lawsuits. In most states you only have 2 years from the date that you were diagnosed with a disease to file a lawsuit against the parties that caused the disease. For example, if you are diagnosed with lung cancer on May 3, 2013, your last day to file a lawsuit will be May...
