Cohen, Placitella & Roth attorneys explore whether the company that exposed our client to toxic substances violated laws or regulations.

Cohen, Placitella & Roth represents workers and individuals who have developed lung cancer after being exposed to asbestos. Lung cancer is a malignant tumor that invades and obstructs the lung’s air passages.

Exposure to asbestos will increase the likelihood of an individual being diagnosed with lung cancer, mesothelioma, and non-malignant lung conditions such as asbestosis and changes in the pleura, such as thickening, plaques, calcification, and fluid around the lungs (pleural effusion); all of which may be early signs of asbestos exposure.Tobacco smokers who have been exposed to asbestos have a “far greater-than-additive” risk for lung cancer than do nonsmokers who have been exposed, meaning the risk is greater than the individual risks from asbestos and smoking added together.

Put Our Decades of Asbestos Lung Cancer Litigation to Work for Your Family

Asbestos cases involving lung cancer are hard fought cases from the very beginning. Defendants often present arguments which are mere attempts to discredit or minimize their client’s involvement in their employee’s illness. At Cohen, Placitella & Roth we utilize all of our resources and uncover the truth about what the company or individual knew about the dangers of asbestos and identify whether they should be held accountable for their actions.

Our mesothelioma and asbestos litigation team will make sure that the facts of your case are highlighted. Our team of medical experts will review your medical records and assist in identifying whether your lung cancer was due to asbestos exposure.

The effects of asbestos exposure are lifelong for an individual and at Cohen, Placitella & Roth we understand the impact an illness can have on an individual and their friends and family. Our lawyers are committed to our clients, from the moment they walk through the door to long after the case is over, and firmly believe that the individual and their family should receive just compensation for their injury.
