Asbestos Companies are Responsible for Mesothelioma
If you were exposed to asbestos and later diagnosed with mesothelioma, the reason is that asbestos manufacturers and others put profits over safety for decades. A mesothelioma lawsuit is your best option when it comes to holding those companies responsible for the suffering they have caused.
Decades of Deplorable Behavior
For years, asbestos companies made millions and millions of dollars while tens of thousands of their workers gradually died due to mesothelioma. And yet, not only did these companies do nothing to try and rectify the problem, they actually worked to cover up the dangers of their deadly product.
Baron & Budd attorneys uncovered vital evidence of such a cover-up, and this helped us win a major mesothelioma verdict as a result. We represented a man who didn’t know he had suffered asbestos exposure, but we proved otherwise.
We have uncovered documents showing that executives of many asbestos companies were well aware of the risks of the product – yet they chose to keep this information from their workers and the ultimate users. The level of callousness exhibited by these executives is appalling to say the least. They chose to protect their bottom line rather than share information that could have saved the lives of thousands of people.
As a matter of fact, documents stretching back all the way to the 1930s – and funded by the asbestos industry – showed that asbestos causes cancer. Executives went so far as to convince the editors of trade publications to remove the word “cancer” from their articles.
Please get in touch with Baron & Budd as quickly as possible if you are considering filing a mesothelioma lawsuit. We will work passionately on your behalf in order to make those responsible pay dearly for the suffering of you and your family. Call 866-723-1890 or contact us online.
