What Can a Philadelphia Asbestos Lawyer Do for Me?

As an asbestos attorney in Philadelphia, our key role is to provide legal counsel and representation to individuals or estates affected by asbestos-related diseases. It often takes decades for the harmful effects of asbestos to surface. This means individuals or estates may be due for rightful compensation years after the initial exposure.

Our Philadelphia asbestos lawyers employ various strategies and legal options to demonstrate undeniable links between asbestos exposure and diagnosed diseases, making it possible for afflicted individuals or their surviving families to win wrongful death cases. The legal team at Heiligman & Mogul, P.C. is dedicated to ensuring that justice is served and that you or your loved ones receive the damages owed to you.

By handling the strenuous legal proceedings, we allow our clients to focus on healing and coping with their condition. We also represent the survivors and the estates of individuals who have died as the result of an asbestos-related disease.

If a doctor diagnosed you with mesothelioma or another disease following exposure to this toxic substance, our law firm can help you obtain the justice you deserve.

Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos is a group of minerals used for insulation and fire-proofing in a wide variety of industries. Although many federal laws and regulations regarding the use and removal of asbestos currently exist, individuals who were exposed to asbestos years ago are still developing mesothelioma and other asbestos diseases today. Most common asbestos exposure victims are:

  • Construction workers
  • Ship builders
  • Auto workers
  • Aircraft workers
  • Railroad workers
  • Asbestos miners
  • Electricians
  • Oil and gas workers
  • Workers in cosmetic, pharmaceutical, plastics, and other chemical industries
  • Workers who remove or demolish floors, walls, ceilings, or insulation that contains asbestos
  • People who work in buildings with asbestos wall and pipe insulation
  • People who work in buildings with sealants that contain asbestos
  • People who work in buildings with floors, walls, and ceilings that contain asbestos
  • People who worked with or near asbestos or products made with this substance
  • Families of people who work with or near asbestos (the workers often carry the fibers home on their skin, hair, and clothes)
  • People who live near industries that use asbestos or products made with this substance

Asbestos Diseases

Inhaling asbestos fibers can cause more than one disease in the same person. These diseases can surface years or decades apart. This is true even when the same exposure caused both (or more) diseases. Asbestos-related diseases that can cause life-changing effects and death include:

  • asbestos lung cancer
  • stomach cancer
  • colon cancer
  • esophageal cancer
  • laryngeal cancer
  • pleural disease (pleural scarring)
  • asbestosis (scarring in lung air sacs)
  • mesothelioma cancer
