Maryland Mesothelioma Lawyer
Manufacturing, power plants, and shipyards have played a vital role in Maryland’s economy. Thousands of workers in these fields have developed devastating illnesses such as mesothelioma from asbestos exposure because companies actively concealed what they knew about the substance’s dangers. If you or your family member has contracted an asbestos-related illness, a Maryland mesothelioma lawyer at the Lanier Law Firm can help you pursue compensation.
Every year in Maryland, an average of 271 people die of asbestos-related illnesses, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. These illnesses could have been prevented if the companies that mined, processed, and used asbestos had been transparent about its dangers.
The largest asbestos companies became aware of its dangers as early as the 1930s. Instead of informing the public or taking measures to protect workers, the companies colluded to conceal the information in a blatant prioritization of profits over people.
If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness, a Maryland mesothelioma lawyer at the Lanier Law Firm can help you hold these companies accountable.
