Defective Respirator Attorneys

Respirators are small but critically important pieces of equipment used by workers around the world to filter out contaminants from the air. These devices can range from simple charcoal filters to elaborate mechanized air scrubbers that can detect the smallest particulate matter. The level of the respirator depends greatly on the material to be filtered, as different contaminants need different levels of filtration.

Unfortunately, far too many respirators fall short of the standards of protection necessary for ensuring the health of the workers who use them. Defective respirators can cause diseases that do not exhibit symptoms until many years after exposure, which prevents immediate correction of faulty equipment. In such cases, instances of asbestosis, silicosis, and black lung disease develop before they are even noticed.

Coal Worker Injury Lawyers & Attorney

Coal working is as dangerous as it is absolutely critical to our country. Without this vital fuel, the United States would neither have the electricity to run its machines or the heat to warm the chilliest winter nights. The people who mine coal from the ground unfortunately pay an extremely high price for their labors, as recent events in West Virginia illustrate.

It is the right of every person who works with coal to have a safe and healthy work environment. Even though government oversight regulates the coal working industry, accidents still occur at an alarming rate. Coal workers are susceptible to far more occupational diseases than most workers, and conditions such as silicosis and black lung disease continue to claim the lives of too many people each year.

If coal working has caused you or someone you love to develop serious health problems, you need to consult an attorney immediately. If unsafe working environments or faulty equipment contributed to your situation you may be able to take legal action against those responsible. Get in touch with an experienced coal worker lawyer today.

Asbestos Respirator Lawyers

Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material found in many parts of the country. It was used for centuries as an insulation and building material because it is durable and it has unique natural flame resistant properties. Unfortunately, many workers did not understand the risks of contracting debilitating lung conditions from mining, and many of them suffered from terrible asbestos-related diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma.

In response to the rising number of cases of serious health problems of people who work with asbestos, the federal government enacted several statutes aimed at reducing the likelihood of diseases. One of these was to mandate the use of air respirators to filter out the delicate asbestos particles out of the air. These particles are so small that many respirators do not filter them all out. Unfortunately this means many people who use faulty respirators will eventually develop serious health problems like mesothelioma and asbestos many years after the fact. Over 84,000 lawsuits have been filed against manufacturer 3M Co. due to respirators that failed to filter out asbestos particles.

If your asbestos respirator failed to protect you from these deadly diseases you may have the ability to collect compensation for your pain and suffering. Let a knowledgeable and dedicated asbestos respirator attorney help you discover the best course of legal action. Get the assistance you deserve today.

Silica Respirator - Silica Lawyers & Attorneys

Silica is the fine, particulate dust that arises during a number of industrial processes such as mining, construction, and rocky quarrying. This dust is essentially microscopic rock that is easily inhaled by anyone who comes into contact with it over a period of time. Eventually, repeated exposure will cause silicosis, a deadly disease that scars the delicate tissues inside the lung, making breathing difficult if not impossible.

In order to counteract the affects of silicosis, many at risk workers wear specialized respirators to filter out the dust and provide fresh, clean air. Unfortunately, should these respirators fail, the diseases they are supposed to prevent will not appear for many years, making early prevention and treatment virtually impossible. This is one reason why a malfunctioning or faulty respirator is so incredibly dangerous.

If your silica respirator failed in its most basic function and you developed a silica-related lung disease as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. People just like you have taken legal action against negligent and irresponsible companies - make your voice heard today. Let a team of dedicated silica respirator lawyers fight for your rights.

Coal Workers Pneumoconiosis (CWP) Lawyers

Coal Workers Pneumoconiosis is what doctors used to call black lung disease, a devastating malady that affects coal miners. This disease causes severe damage to the lungs of people who inhale coal dust. Over time, this disease will cause scar tissue to form over membranes of the lungs, reducing the ability of the body to process oxygen.

In order to prevent this disease coal miners were made to wear respirators that are supposed to filter out coal dust, thereby preventing the conditions that make Coal Workers Pneumoconiosis possible. Unfortunately these devices are rarely up to the task, as a group of miners in western Kentucky discovered when they were forced to sue five leading respirator manufacturers for damages relating to Coal Workers Pneumoconiosis.

If your respirator failed causing you to develop Coal Workers Pneumoconiosis, you may be able to take legal action to receive compensation for your pain and suffering. Let a dedicated and experienced Coal Workers Pneumoconiosis lawyer help you discover your rights and get the restitution you deserve. Get the guidance you are entitled to today.

Black Lung Disease Lawyers

Black lung disease is an all too common condition that occurs when coal miners breathe air saturated with coal dust. Inhaling too much coal dust over a period of time can lead to the fine particles scaring delicate lung tissue, which in turn makes breathing extremely difficult and painful.

To prevent black lung disease coal miners wear elaborate respirators that attempt to filter out the disease-causing material. Unfortunately, if these respirators fail, miners have little indication of any problem until years afterwards, when the first symptoms of black lung disease begin to appear. This condition is so dangerous and so common that miners in western Kentucky filed suit against five major manufacturers due to faulty respirators that lead to black lung and silicosis.

Your job should never cost you your life. If you developed black lung disease because of your faulty or malfunctioning respirator you may be entitled to take legal action to recover damages. Let a dedicated and experienced black lung disease lawyer help you discover if a lawsuit is right for you. Get the help you need today.

Lung Transplant Surgery - Silicosis Lawyer

Lung transplant surgery is a remarkable surgical technique where the diseased lung or lungs of a patient are replaced with healthy tissues. This elaborate procedure was first performed in the 1980s and it is now one of the important life-saving procedures for victims of a number of pulmonary diseases such as asbestosis, silicosis, and black lung disease.

Unfortunately lung transplants are very expensive, and out of reach for the victims who need them the most. Legal action is one way that people who endure these types of conditions can finance expensive and complicated procedures like lung transplant surgery.

If you need lung transplant surgery you may be able to receive the compensation you deserve by taking legal action against the parties responsible for your condition. Fill out the free initial consultation form today, and let a team of dedicated and experienced lawyers help you protect your rights.

Lung Transplant Information

Lung transplants enable people with damaged or disease lungs to breathe easier and live longer. This procedure is rather complicated and dangerous, but technology has significantly improved since the first lung transplants were performed in the 1980s, and the survival rate for patients has increased dramatically.

The reality is lung transplants are extremely expensive, and most insurance companies will not pay for what they consider to be a risky and complicated procedure. One way for the innocent victims of silicosis, asbestos, and black lung disease to finance this type of operation is through legal compensation for manufacturer negligence.

If you need a lung transplant because your respirator failed to protect your lungs from contaminated air, you need to contact a lawyer immediately. The financial compensation you may be entitled to can help offset the cost of expensive lung surgery by holding irresponsible and negligent corporations responsible.
