Our Specialists Offer Free Asbestos Screenings to Former Hobart Brothers Company Employees
While not the entirety of products manufactured by Hobart Brothers Company would contain asbestos, the harmful mineral was used in their welding equipment to increase fire resistance and durability. Because no safety measures were in place, workers would inhale and ingest toxic asbestos fibers on a regular basis, which could later result in awful diseases such as lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma. In fact, after 1980, mesothelioma became alarmingly common in the U.S. Every year, up to 3,000 cases are diagnosed, which – considering that it is a rare cancer – is quite a lot. The number of Americans who lose their lives to asbestos-related diseases annually ranges between 12,000 and 15,000.
In a small attempt to promote timely and accurate diagnosis, as correctly identifying these diseases is extremely challenging, our medical experts provide asbestos screenings free of charge to anyone who held down a job at Hobart Brothers Company while the company was using asbestos. All you have to do is send in your most recent chest X-ray and our specialists will thoroughly examine it to let you know whether the health of your lungs should be a cause for concern. Since misdiagnosis is also very widespread among victims of asbestos exposure, we also advise you to seek a second and even a third opinion from equally qualified medical professionals. In the regrettable event a disease is discovered, do not hesitate to contact our lawyers, who specialize in asbestos litigation. They will ensure you receive the compensation you deserve from your former employer, a process which requires minimal involvement on your part.
