Helping Louisianans With Asbestos-Related Diseases

Prolonged exposure to asbestos can lead to a number of serious cancers and diseases. In most cases, an individual will have worked at a job site where he or she either directly handled asbestos products or worked in an area where asbestos products were being used by others. In either scenario, when a person has inhaled asbestos, the tiny fibers can lodge internally and lay dormant for decades before an illness develops. Unfortunately, in many cases, by the time a person develops symptoms, the disease has already progressed to advanced stages.

What Diseases Can Be Caused By Asbestos Exposure?

If during your lifetime you worked in an asbestos high-risk occupation or at a high-risk job site, and you now have a serious disease, there is a possibility that the two are related. Please understand that you and your family may be entitled to financial compensation for your illness.

At Pourciau Law Firm, our skilled and caring lawyers work with families to establish where and when the asbestos exposure occurred and fight to obtain a fair and just settlement.
