Our Specialists Provide Asbestos Screenings Free of Charge to Former Shook & Fletcher Employees
Initially a manufacturer of brick, coal, and iron products, Shook & Fletcher began using asbestos around the middle of the last century, when insulation became another building material the company was producing. Their asbestos employment ceased in the 1970s, when the disastrous health consequences of exposure were finally acknowledged. Other Shook & Fletcher products in which asbestos was present include cement, fiberglass, plastic jacketing, mineral fiber pipe, as well as adhesives. By 2002, over 80,000 lawsuits had been filed against the company by reason of injuries stemming from occupational asbestos exposure. The inhalation and ingestion of asbestos fibers can cause numerous awful diseases, such as pulmonary fibrosis, COPD, asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma – the most aggressive form of pulmonary cancer.
Was Shook & Fletcher your employer during the heyday of asbestos? If so, we wholeheartedly encourage you to undergo a screening free of charge offered by our medical specialists. Since the body cannot eliminate asbestos fibers, they will linger on internal organs for decades following exposure, gradually producing inflammation and tissue scarring. The majority of people rarely experience symptoms until their illness reaches advanced stages, which is why asbestos diseases are often fatal. To promote early diagnosis, the experts at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. provide free screenings to anyone with a history of workplace asbestos exposure. They will carefully examine your chest X-ray to let you know whether asbestos has affected your lungs and, in the unfortunate event it has, to what extent. Do not hesitate to give us a call and we will promptly put you in touch with our medical specialists.
