Man sues multiple companies in Pennsylvania for asbestos exposure

Exposure to asbestos is a big concern to Pennsylvania residents who spent their working lives in certain industries. Employees who worked in certain types of manufacturing or industrial jobs might have been exposed to the chemical, which can cause serious and often fatal illnesses including lung cancer. Many workers, some of them retired for decades, have been diagnosed with serious diseases in their retirement and blame the companies that produced materials for their exposure.

A Pennsylvania man recently filed a lawsuit after his asbestos-related lung cancer was diagnosed late last year. The man, who worked as a machinist for three decades, says that multiple companies whose products he worked with should be held to blame for the onset of his workplace illness.

The list of companies the man names in his lawsuit is quite large. More than a dozen companies that made or distributed products that the man used in his job during his time as a machinist, from 1954 to 1985, are named as defendants. Many other folks have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or other lung ailments from their time working in industrial settings during this time period.

A case such as this one can take a long time to be resolved. In some cases, the plaintiffs in such cases pass away from their illnesses before justice can be served. That's why it is often important to select an attorney who has experience in workplace illness cases who can see a case through -- if not for the person affected, then for his or her survivors.
