The Tragedy of Asbestos Exposure

For decades, hardworking Americans were routinely victims of asbestos exposure.  It was used in paper mills, refineries, steel mills, textile plants, tire and rubber factories, shipyards, auto repair shops, blast furnaces, railroad yards and in many other industries and workplaces.  Asbestos was used on thousands of job sites including construction, roofing, plumbing and Asbestos exposurewelding.

Workers who breathed the tiny, dust-like asbestos particles are at risk of developing mesothelioma and lung cancer MANY years later.  In fact, mesothelioma, a serious type of cancer that usually involves the lining of the lungs, may not be diagnosed for several decades following asbestos exposure.

It did not have to be this way.  Large, multi-national companies that made products containing asbestos knew even in the 1930s that asbestos killed people.  They knew it and they did nothing about it—except continue to make the products and continue to cash in the profits.

The use of asbestos across the United States for much of the 20th Century is a terrible example of corporate greed.

At the Keahey Law Firm, we research the work histories of those who may have asbestos exposure cases.  We represent those men, women and families whose lives have been turned upside down because of asbestos.  We work to get them the cash settlements to which they are entitled.  And we never charge a penny to do that unless we get cash settlements for a client and the client’s family.

That has been the mission of the Keahey Law Firm for more than 25 years.

Because we are based in Alabama, much of our work is done for Alabama residents.  But we have assisted asbestos victims and their families across the United States.

It brings us great joy and much satisfaction to help innocent people who have been harmed by asbestos.
