The Mesothelioma Crisis

In the midst of this unprecedented pandemic that is changing the lives of most families locally and around the world, there exists another killer – mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma, cancers, and other serious diseases are often caused by products containing asbestos and other toxins.

These materials were commonly used by hundreds of companies and manufacturing centers since well before the turn of the 20th century. Often, the subsequent disease does not rear its ugly head until decades after the initial exposure to a worker.

Over recent years, the lawyers at Tauber Law Office have dealt with many cases of victims who have become seriously ill, or have even died, as a result of exposure to these toxins.   

This phenomenon is especially common in our own region, being that Gary and Chicago were among the top manufacturing centers in the nation. 

Gary has a long history of manufacturing activity in industries known for their use of asbestos products, making asbestos exposure, and the risk of pleural mesothelioma, an ongoing concern for workers, particularly for those who worked in steel mills.  In addition, Chicago’s extensive manufacturing and industrial base places the city in a high-risk category for exposure to asbestos containing products. 

Nationally, over 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma and related diseases are being diagnosed each year. 

The attorneys at Tauber Law Offices consider mesothelioma to be a critical issue that is now being diagnosed more than ever before.  If you or a loved one believes that mesothelioma has caused serious injury or even death, we want to hear about it.  There is compensation available in many cases.  Feel free to contact us at any time.  We will listen to you and evaluate your case.
