Do You Even Need a Lawyer?

If you previously worked offshore or on inland drilling barges at anytime during the 1960’s through the late 1980’s and you have been diagnosed with, or are experiencing, any one of these conditions, you should speak to a lawyer about weather you may have suffered an asbestos related injury:
  • Mesothelioma of the lungs (pleural) abdomen
  • (Peritoneal), heart area (pericardial), or testicle(s);
  • Asbestosis;
  • Lung cancer;
  • Pulmonary fibrosis;
  • Lung irritation;
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing; or
  • Chest pain.
Even if none of the above symptoms are present, and you recall working in or around the asbestos fibers, it is possible you may have asbestos fibers within your lungs. This condition can be determined by proper medical testing and such condition can form the basis for a claim relating to past asbestos exposure. It may not be best to simply wait and see if any more serious conditions develop. Early diagnosis is always best.

If you are not sure if your employer used asbestos in the 1960’s, 1970’s or 1980’s, the information in this book may help you recall if you were exposed to asbestos products during such time. Photographs of asbestos products are provided as well as the product names.
