High-Risk Occupations for Mesothelioma

Compensation for Mesothelioma

Murphy Law Firm, LLC represents people in Louisiana and throughout the country who have contracted mesothelioma or other illnesses that result from exposure to asbestos. Our Baton Rouge lawyers are dedicated to fighting for our clients. We will help you find a doctor to detect and diagnose your condition, defend you against the insurance company’s tactics for minimizing your recovery, and litigate aggressively for the compensation you deserve for what you have suffered.

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that deteriorates the interior organs of the body. Asbestos exposure is the most common cause of mesothelioma. Most cases of mesothelioma come as a result of jobs that involve consistent, long-term exposure. Companies like Dow Chemical and Exxon Mobile have faced lawsuits brought by their employees for mesothelioma caused by asbestos exposure while working for these companies.

Some high risk occupations include:

  • Scaffold building
  • Welding
  • Pipe fitting
  • Construction work
  • Industrial work and manufacturing
  • Shipbuilding
  • Mining
  • Plumbing
  • Sheet metal work
  • Cabinet making

Sadly, it doesn’t always take years of high-risk work. In some cases, family members contracted mesothelioma just by washing clothes together with asbestos-exposed work uniforms.

Dealing With the Insurance Company

“If you worked for years for a company and that work exposed you to asbestos, you should not have to shoulder the financial burden of your illness alone. Your employer and its insurance company should pay for it. The lawyers of Murphy Law Firm, LLC are here to fight for the compensation you deserve. Don’t be a victim twice by accepting less than what your case is worth. Call me.” ∙ Attorney Peyton Murphy ∙ Contact Murphy Law Firm, LLC.

If you have been exposed to asbestos and you are starting to experience some of the symptoms of mesothelioma, contact a lawyer before talking with the insurance company representatives. They are trained experts at denying and minimizing claims. We have a wealth of experience helping clients obtaining fair compensation for the full costs and damages that come from mesothelioma and asbestos.
